  Take a look at Pekka Nikander's paper from Usenix02:

  Pekka Nikander, "Authorization and charging in public WLANs using
  FreeBSD and 802.1x," in Proceedings of the Freenix track: 2002 USENIX
  Annual Technical Conference, Monterey, CA, June 10-15, 2002. 


  He has a netgraph module (perhaps a tad outdated) available.
