Summary : IEEE 802.11 AP, IEEE 802.1X/WPA/WPA2/EAP/RADIUS Authenticator
Description :
hostapd is a user space daemon for access point and authentication
servers. It implements IEEE 802.11 access point management, IEEE
802.1X/WPA/WPA2/EAP Authenticators and RADIUS authentication server.

hostapd is designed to be a "daemon" program that runs in the back-
ground and acts as the backend component controlling authentication.
hostapd supports separate frontend programs and an example text-based
frontend, hostapd_cli, is included with hostapd.
