My goal for the AP that I am creating would be to implement some
advanced authorization and authentication capabilities. The new wlan
security initiatives call for using 802.1X port authentication to do
this, and I already have a freeradius server and ldap directory set up
for this purpose.
Would it be possible to offer as a function of monowall the option to
enable 802.1X authentication on the wlan interface? Would this be a
difficult integration? And is it even a functional possibility at this
time? My thought would be the use of the open1x package.
I know I could use ipsec or other methods to do this, but the overhead
of managing the vpn outweigh the advantage right now.
Another method I did like a lot was using authpf on my OpenBSD
installation to create an authentication gateway.
