ConnMan does not support setting up anonymous or outer EAP identity for WiFi WPA Enterprise [released]

In addition to that ConnMan does not support certificate detail validation ConnMan also lacks the configuration settings for setting inner and outer EAP identity separately.

This means that the user is not able to set the outer identity in WiFi roaming networks to be for example anonymous@organisation.fi to protect user's true inner identity.

This also means that if organisation's authentication server is configured to accept only username without realm (e.g. user instead of user@organisation.fi), the user cannot configure ConnMan properly for roaming networks. This is because ConnMan seems to copy the inner identity to outer without possibility to add realm for WiFi roaming routing.

This is supposedly fixed in upstream ConnMan, in commit 1d5429.

Can't tell when.. but it is included in https://github.com/mer-packages/connman/pull/237.

If all goes well this is included in the update after the update after 1.1.9.x.

so if I want to use this feature I will finally have to say goodbye to SfOS 1 :(

The solution is of course to ConnMan or Jolla to add configuration of inner and outer EAP identity to ConnMan. There are of course some other solutions also documented here.

@chemist good tip

@chemist getting their enhancements to upstream would be even better...
