NAMEwlan_xauth - External authenticator support for 802.11 devices
DESCRIPTIONThe ifconfig module is a wlan(4) authenticator plugin for use with user-mode authentication implementations such as hostapd It hooks into the 802.11 layer and does nothing. As a result, 802.11 stations that associate are not authorized to send or receive frames until they are authorized by an external agent; typically using a protocol such as WPA, 802.1x, or 802.11i.
This module is automatically loaded by the rc script that normally starts hostapd(8).
