New EAP Types

In Windows 8 and Server 2012 you'll find a few new EAP types natively supported by Windows. Authentication types, including Wireless Internet Services Provider roaming (WISPr) and EAP-SIM/AKA/AKA Prime, ease the connection process to Wi-Fi hotspots. Support for EAP-TTLS has also been included so enterprises or campuses don’t have to use a third-party supplicant/client when implementing this 802.1X authentication type.
