you could always do a
$man paed

to see the manual page for it
I would do it for you but I'm currently not in a linux box

Well after a brief search on google, I think it may stand for "Port Authentication Entity Daemon". It's apparently developed by GlobespanVirata (who seem to be developing/selling integrated circuits for wlan devices) and is used to control WPA/802.1x functions. It's closed source by the way.
I hope that helps a little.

no man page for 'paed'
there is no man page for PAED command, its related to the security and authentication of WLAN cards, but i want to know the exact use of it......
