Yes, I went through the hostapd.conf file.
So can we enable MAC based policy in hostapd? As per wiki documentation mac80211 doe not support mac filtering.

I need to know whether HostAPD support below feature
1) Client-based policy allocation by internal and external RADIUS server :
- VLAN policy
- ACL policy
- Web redirection policy
2) What is specific RADIUS attribute for each allocation and if it is supported by hostapd?Please clarify me soon.
