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-

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