wpa_supplicant implementation is divided into number of independent
modules. Core code includes functionality for controlling the network
selection, association, and configuration. Independent modules include
WPA code (key handshake, PMKSA caching, pre-authentication), EAPOL
state machine, and EAP state machine and methods. In addition, there
are number of separate files for generic helper functions.
Both WPA and EAPOL/EAP state machines can be used separately in other
programs than wpa_supplicant. As an example, the included test
programs eapol_test and preauth_test are using these modules.
\ref driver_wrapper "Driver interface API" is defined in \ref driver.h and
all hardware/driver dependent functionality is implemented in
\section _wpa_supplicant_core wpa_supplicant core functionality
\ref wpa_supplicant.c

\section generic_helper_func Generic helper functions
wpa_supplicant uses generic helper functions some of which are shared
with with hostapd. The following C files are currently used:

may need to be added when porting to new operating systems that are
not supported by libdnet/libpcap. Makefile can be used to select which
l2_packet implementation is included. \ref l2_packet_linux.c uses Linux
packet sockets and \ref l2_packet_pcap.c has a more portable version using
libpcap and libdnet.
