Bug Description

Hi,

I, and others got the Bq Aquaris e4.5 Ubuntu Edition.
We are in France.
We suscribed to the provider free mobile ( http://mobile.free.fr )

We didn't found how to set up EAP-SIM, that lead us to think it is not implemented yet.

Documentation about the service : (fr) http://mobile.free.fr/assistance/262.html

There is a plenty of "FreeWiFi_Secure" in France, that provide the WiFi instead of the 3/4G resulting when auto connecting to it for the customer to not burn all the data/month of its contract. I bet other provider in other country 'offer' service like this.

I can confirm that WiFi EAP-SIM support is not supported by Ubuntu.

I changed this Importance to 'Wishlist' as this is a missing feature, not a bug.

Without in-depth analysis, at minimum this would require support in network-manager ( both the core WiFi code and ofono integration logic ) and possibly ofono as well.

summary: - EAP-SIM is not implemented
+ WiFi EAP-SIM authentication is not supported

Is there a way to edit the wpa_supplicant.conf to get a quick fix ?

    network={
    ssid="FreeWifi_secure"
    key_mgmt=WPA-EAP IEEE8021X
    eap=SIM
    priority=5
    }

I've tried to add a conf file in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ with :

    [wifi-security]
    key-mgmt=WPA-EAP IEEE8021X
    eap=sim

without success...

So now I'm looking into /android/system/etc/wifi/ to edit the wpa_supplicant.conf but with the right restricted, I don't know if it's the correct way to add the support for eap-sim...?
