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
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.
