Yes. I looked at this a couple of months ago. We now have implementations of COMP128v1, v2 and v3.

If your sim cards use those algorithms then you can authenticate wireless users if you have the Ki (in theory). I've not actually tested this yet...

You need to set:

update control {
	EAP-Sim-Algo-Version := [1|2|3]
	EAP-Sim-KI := <the subscriber's Ki>

This is 3.0.x and master branches only. I don't believe there's a released version with the code in.

You can use rlm_example as a starting point. You'll need to know C. 

In terms of talking with ss7 servers libss7 might be a good place to start, unless anyone knows of something better maintained.

I'd be happy to give you pointers if you run into issues, so long as the final product is contributed back to the project.

Ah. Sorry about the formatting, it wasn't us.
