Bug Description

wpasupplicant comes with an auxiliary program, eapol_test, but it is not included in the Ubuntu wpasupplicant package. I'd like to request that it be added.

It's very useful for testing wifi RADIUS servers: e.g. you can call it from a Nagios check script where you want to test the entire EAP/PEAP authentication cycle.

WORKAROUND: build from source.

* download and untar the wpasuppliant source
* cd wpa_supplicant-2.6/wpa_supplicant
* create/edit the .config file
* make eapol_test && strip eapol_test
* sudo cp eapol_test /usr/local/bin/
