<para>eapol_test is a program that links together the same EAP
peer implementation that wpa_supplicant is using and the RADIUS
authentication client code from hostapd. In addition, it has
minimal glue code to combine these two components in similar
ways to IEEE 802.1X/EAPOL Authenticator state machines. In other
words, it integrates IEEE 802.1X Authenticator (normally, an
access point) and IEEE 802.1X Supplicant (normally, a wireless
client) together to generate a single program that can be used to
test EAP methods without having to setup an access point and a
wireless client.</para>
<para>The main uses for eapol_test are in interoperability testing
of EAP methods against RADIUS servers and in development testing
for new EAP methods. It can be easily used to automate EAP testing
for interoperability and regression since the program can be run
from shell scripts without require additional test components apart
from a RADIUS server. For example, the automated EAP tests described
in eap_testing.txt are implemented with eapol_test. Similarly,
eapol_test could be used to implement an automated regression
test suite for a RADIUS authentication server.</para>
<para>As an example:</para>
eapol_test -ctest.conf -a127.0.0.1 -p1812 -ssecret -r1
<para>tries to complete EAP authentication based on the network
configuration from test.conf against the RADIUS server running
on the local host. A re-authentication is triggered to test fast
re-authentication. The configuration file uses the same format for
network blocks as wpa_supplicant.</para>
