Following Stefan's Winter message, I attach my How-To deploy EAP-FAST on
FreeRADIUS which summarizes what I've done to get it to work with
version 2.1.8.
A few changes in FreeRADIUS are needed to provide some configuration
variables to the hostap EAP library.
The biggest problem is that this solution works only with eapol_test
client. In real world, on the wireless network we managed to
authenticate using EAP-FAST on FreeRADIUS only with anonymous PAC
provisioning, because EAP fragmentation seems to be not handled.
