-EAP peer/server library and example program

-The interfaces of the EAP server/peer implementation are based on RFC
-4137 (EAP State Machines). This RFC is coordinated with the state
-machines defined in IEEE 802.1X-2004. hostapd and wpa_supplicant
-include implementation of the IEEE 802.1X EAPOL state machines and the
-interface between them and EAP. However, the EAP implementation can be
-used with other protocols, too, by providing a compatible interface
-which maps the EAPOL<->EAP variables to another protocol.
-
-This directory contains an example showing how EAP peer and server
-code from wpa_supplicant and hostapd can be used as a library. The
-example program initializes both an EAP server and an EAP peer
-entities and then runs through an EAP-PEAP/MSCHAPv2 authentication.
-
-eap_example_peer.c shows the initialization and glue code needed to
-control the EAP peer implementation. eap_example_server.c does the
-same for EAP server. eap_example.c is an example that ties in both the
-EAP server and client parts to allow an EAP authentication to be
-shown.
-
-In this example, the EAP messages are passed between the server and
-the peer are passed by direct function calls within the same process.
-In practice, server and peer functionalities would likely reside in
-separate devices and the EAP messages would be transmitted between the
-devices based on an external protocol. For example, in IEEE 802.11
-uses IEEE 802.1X EAPOL state machines to control the transmission of
-EAP messages and WiMax supports optional PMK EAP authentication
-mechanism that transmits EAP messages as defined in IEEE 802.16e.
-
-
-The EAP library links in number of helper functions from src/utils and
-src/crypto directories. Most of these are suitable as-is, but it may
-be desirable to replace the debug output code in src/utils/wpa_debug.c
-by dropping this file from the library and re-implementing the
-functions there in a way that better fits in with the main
-application.
