+ <h2>Host AP driver for Intersil Prism2/2.5/3, hostapd, and WPA Supplicant</h2>
+
+<h3><a name="intro">Introduction</a></h3>
+
+<p>This project includes three main components:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Host AP - Linux driver for Prism2/2.5/3</li>
+<li><a href="hostapd/">hostapd</a> - user space daemon for access points,
+ including, e.g., IEEE 802.1X/WPA/EAP Authenticator for number of Linux and
+ BSD drivers, RADIUS client, integrated EAP server, and RADIUS
+ authentication server</li>
+<li><a href="wpa_supplicant/">wpa_supplicant</a> user space IEEE 802.1X/WPA
+ supplicant (wireless client) for number of Linux, BSD, and Windows
+ drivers</li>
+</ul>
+
+<p>
+Host AP is a Linux driver for wireless LAN cards based on Intersil's
+Prism2/2.5/3 chipset. The driver supports a so called Host AP mode, i.e., it
+takes care of IEEE 802.11 management functions in the host computer
+and acts as an access point. This does not require any special
+firmware for the wireless LAN card. In addition to this, it has
+support for normal station operations in BSS and possible also in
+IBSS. WPA and RSN (WPA2) is supported when used with accompanied tools,
+wpa_supplicant (WPA/RSN Supplicant) and hostapd (WPA/RSN Authenticator). All
+these programs have been designed for both desktop/laptop computers and
+embedded systems.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Intersil's station firmware for Prism2 chipset supports a so called
+Host AP mode in which the firmware takes care of time critical tasks
+like beacon sending and frame acknowledging, but leaves other
+management tasks to host computer driver. This driver implements basic
+functionality needed to initialize and configure Prism2-based cards,
+to send and receive frames, and to gather statistics. In addition, it
+includes an implementation of following IEEE 802.11 functions:
+authentication (and deauthentication), association (reassociation, and
+disassociation), data transmission between two wireless stations,
+power saving (PS) mode signaling and frame buffering for PS
+stations. The driver has also various features for development
+debugging and for researching IEEE 802.11 environments like access to
+hardware configuration records, I/O registers, and frames with 802.11
+headers.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+When used with a user space daemon, the combination of the Host AP
+driver and hostapd daemon includes additional features. These include
+support for IEEE 802.1X and dynamic WEP rekeying, RADIUS Accounting,
+RADIUS-based ACL for IEEE 802.11 authentication, minimal IAPP (IEEE
+802.11f), WPA, IEEE 802.11i/RSN/WPA2.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+<a href="http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Wireless.html">Linux
+Wireless LAN Howto</a> has some useful information about wireless LAN support
+in Linux. In addition, it includes information about which cards are
+Prism2-based (and can thus be used in Host AP mode).

+
+<h3>Wireless Tools for Linux</h3>
+
+<p>
+Please, note that you will need quite recent version of Wireless Tools
+to use some features of the Host AP driver. Using the
+<a href="http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Tools.html#latest">latest</a>
+version of the tools is recommended. Some features might also require latest beta version.
+</p>
+
+<h3>Feedback, comments, mailing list</h3>
+
+<p>
+Any comments, reports on success/failure, ideas for further
+improvement, feature requests, etc. are welcome at j@w1.fi.
+Please note, that I often receive more email than I have time to answer.
+Unfortunately, some messages may not get a reply, but I'll try to go
+through my mail whenever time permits.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+There is also a mailing list for Host AP related messages.
+Since this list has a broader audience, your likelyhood of getting
+responses is higher. This list is recommended for general questions
+about Host AP driver and its development. In addition, I will send
+release notes to it whenever a new version is available.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+The mailing list information and web archive is at <a
+href="http://lists.shmoo.com/mailman/listinfo/hostap">http://lists.shmoo.com/mailman/listinfo/hostap</a>.
+Messages to hostap@shmoo.com will be delivered to the
+subscribers. Please note, that due to large number of spam and virus
+messages sent to the list address, the list is configured to accept
+messages only from subscribed addresses. Messages from unsubscribed addresses
+may be accepted manually, but their delivery will be delayed.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+If you want to make sure your bug report of feature request does not
+get lost, please report it through the bug tracking system as
+<a href="bugz/enter_bug.cgi">a new bug/feature request</a>.
