    Version     : 2.4
    Release     : 3.fc22
    URL         : http://w1.fi/hostapd
    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
    acts as the backend component controlling authentication. hostapd supports
    separate frontend programs and an example text-based frontend, hostapd_cli, is
    included with hostapd.
