2008-04-16 08:06:54     802.1x supplicant on Ethernet port

Laurent Brard (FRANCE)

Message: 54331    Hello,

 

For a new project I would need to support 802.1x on the ethernet port of a BF537 based board (I only need to authenticate as a supplicant).

Looking at the source tree I have not been able to understand (quickly...) if uClinux supports 802.1x for wireless link only or if you could use it for a standard ethernet port.

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Laurent.

Message: 54348    uClinux is Linux.  so if Linux supports it, then generally it'll work without an mmu as well.  we've tested 802.11[ab] plenty and know it works fine.

 

please search the docs wiki for more information.

Hello Laurent,

 

did you get 802.1X working on your board with uClinux? I am currently researching the topic looking for a solution on our bf537 board and found this post.

 

@Mike: Laurent probably did not talk about 802.11, but 802.1X which is an IEEE Standard for access control in LANs.

No, I have not tried to make it work. I was mostly trying to see if it would

be possible without too much effort.

At the time, I saw some pieces needed in wifi sources but it did not look

like you could use it as is for 802.1X.

Please keep informed if you find a solution in the latest distribution.

 

Thank you,

 

Laurent
