WLAN_XAUTH(4)		 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		 WLAN_XAUTH(4)

NAME
     wlan_xauth	-- External authenticator support for 802.11 devices

SYNOPSIS
     device wlan_xauth

DESCRIPTION
     The wlan_xauth module is a	wlan(4)	authenticator plugin for use with
     user-mode authentication implementations such as hostapd.	It hooks into
     the 802.11	layer and does nothing.	 As a result, 802.11 stations that as-
     sociate are not authorized	to send	or receive frames until	they are au-
     thorized by an external agent; typically using a protocol such as WPA,
     802.1x, or	802.11i.

     This module is automatically loaded by the	rc script that normally	starts
     hostapd(8).

SEE ALSO
     wlan(4)

STANDARDS
     More information can be found in the IEEE 802.11, WPA, and	802.11i	Stan-
     dards.

HISTORY
     The wlan_xauth driver first appeared in FreeBSD 6.0.
