    Summary     : IEEE 802.11 AP, IEEE 802.1X/WPA/WPA2/EAP/RADIUS Authenticator
    Description :
    hostapd is a user space daemon for access point and authentication servers. It
    implements IEEE 802.11 access point management, IEEE 802.1X/WPA/WPA2/EAP
    Authenticators and RADIUS authentication server.
    hostapd is designed to be a "daemon" program that runs in the back-ground and

    separate frontend programs and an example text-based frontend, hostapd_cli, is
    included with hostapd.
