There's nothing to specify for WiMAX since that's all handled on a lower
level, at least with all the hardware that's out there right now and
compatible with Linux. The current NM code only supports the Intel
"wimaxd" software and Intel i2400m WiMAX hardware since that's the only
WiMAX stack that's freely available on Linux.
The only relevant settings for WiMAX are currently the MAC address, to
lock to a specific WiMAX device, and the NSP name. The wimaxd daemon
itself handles any security that might be required based on it's
configuration file and stored list of NSP configurations. I think it
supports EAP-TLS and EAP-TTLS which are (I believe) the de-facto
standard auth protocols for most mobile wimax networks.
