From the console snip code: join_ent()
For EAP_TYPE_PEAP, it needs to set inner identity.
Which means the developers need to know the eap_type before starting join AP but such information is not available from scan result.
The console snip code assumes the user will input the eap_type, but this won't work in practice.
The eap_type needs to be identified via scan result.
Can someone help?

As I know, there are no any IE to show which EAP method used in WPA/WPA2 enterprise! Only told it's support WPA/WPA2 only.
All authentication is process by supplicant, WiFi only forward EAPOL packet to supplicant.

I confirmed with the engineers that there is no provision to know eap_type from scan result. I agree with JoYi_1844281. STA/AP passes 802.11x message to supplicant and the supplicant determines the supported EAP type. This is typically done using 802.1x EAP Request message.
