"CIITIX-Wi-Fi couples FreeRADIUS, daloRADIUS, and OpenSSL to give you a turn-key Wi-Fi authentication solution. It's an open source Debian-based Linux distribution, released under the GPLv2 license. It lets you quickly and easily implement the Enterprise mode of WPA or WPA2 encryption for your wireless network by providing the required 802.1X authentication. You can also use it to authenticate other network connections and components.

"{CIITIX-Wi-Fi is GUI-based so you don't have to be an IT or Linux expert. Plus it automatically generates the SSL certificate required for the RADIUS server. You can alternatively supply your own certificates.

"CIITIX-Wi-Fi can even run in LiveCD mode, so you don't have to have a dedicated hard disk. However, we're going to permanently install it, which requires less than 400MB on your hard drive."
