Thought this might interest folks -- one of these days we should offer to
do the O'Reilly CWN book.

[1] Matthew Gast has filed a series of four articles on using 802.1X with
open-source projects to create PEAP authenticated networks: Matthew is one
of the best writers on the subject of enterprise authentication, and
author of [2] 802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide. His four
articles at O'Reilly Network walk through his efforts to make the
open-source xsupplicant 802.1X client create a successful PEAP (Protected
EAP) tunnel and authentication with dynamic WEP keys. His efforts helped
patch an incompatibility between xsupplicant and Microsoft's IAS server,
making xsupplicant a more widely usable product. [link via Douglas Burns]
