What are the major differences between wpa_supplicant found on a Debian Linux distribution and that wpa_supplicant found on android?

PS: please apology if the question is too generic


In Android, wpa_supplicant deamon, wpa_cli and libwpa_client library are generated from wpa_supplicant external project found in aosp_root/external/wpa_supplicant; being in the "external" folder means that it was taken as is from another project (means wasn't Androidized in any way). so I think there are no differeneces at all.

Also the README file found in the project says that it can work on all distros based on linux kernel.

    Can you then explain why wpa keys from Android don't work on Debian? (WRONG_KEY) – Aloha Jan 22 '18 at 10:22
