EAPHost API Reference

The EAPHost APIs are divided into three components: the supplicant APIs, which are directly callable from an EAP-enabled application; the EAP peer method APIs, which manage supplicant requests for a specific EAP authentication type and raise interactive elements on the client; and the EAP authenticator APIS, which perform the server-side authentication of a supplicant.

The latter two API components -- the EAP Peer Method and EAP Authenticator Method APIs -- require custom and conformant implementation in DLLs that expose them to the EAPHost service. They cannot be called directly from application code; instead, they are called by EAPHost (on client side for EAP peer methods, and on the server side for EAP authenticator methods) if the implementation matches the API signatures specified in the corresponding documentation. API implementation specific information is provided on each function reference page.
