Hi Vijay,

> I am specifically looking for help in understanding if StrongSwan has support to handle “EAP Expanded Type” with a non-zero “Vendor-Id” as defined in IETF rfc3748 Section 5.7.

It does.

There are many plugins that implement EAP methods, although, none
vendor-specific.  For the latter a plugin just has to register the
plugin feature with PLUGIN_PROVIDE(EAP_SERVER|PEER_VENDOR, type, vendor)
using the appropriate numeric vendor ID and type.
