Description     : PPP daemon with EAP-TLS authentication support

This package contains an extended  Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) daemon
with support for EAP-TLS authentication.

The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP; RFC 3748) is a
security protocol that can be used with PPP.  It provides a means
to plug in multiple optional authentication methods.

Transport Level Security (TLS; RFC 2246) provides for mutual 
authentication, integrity-protected ciphersuite negotiation and 
key exchange between two endpoints.  It also provides for optional
MPPE encryption.

EAP-TLS (RFC 2716) incapsulates the TLS messages in EAP packets,
allowing TLS mutual authentication to be used as a generic EAP
mechanism. It also provides optional encryption using the MPPE

This authentication method can be used in both client or server mode.
