I'm trying to configure 802.1X on a wired interface, because I'm going to connect an acces point in my garage, and I want to secure the access of the ethernet cable that will go in my garage to keep people from accessing my LAN by just connecting this ethernet to a computer.
802.1X is more secure than mac adresse filtering.
What I want is to configure 802.1X authenticator, and not the supplicant. I only found documentation to configure the supplicant (the client).
I tried, with wpad (the full version) this configuration :
config interface 'garage' option type 'bridge' option proto 'static' option netmask '255.255.255.0' option ipaddr '192.168.9.1' option ifname 'eth0.1 eth0.3' option driver 'wired' option ieee8021 '1' option eap_server '1' option eap_user_file "/etc/config/8021X.user"
With 8021X.user containing login / password for client / supplicant 802.1X
From what I understant wpad is hostapd + wpa_supplicant so wpad should support 802.1X as a supplicant ? But does it support wired 802.1X ?
Did someone managed to configure wired 802.1X authenticator on an OpenWrt interface ? And how ?
