Hi Interface: NWu Entities; UE and N3IWF

In 5G for vowifi Standalone solution N3IWF is introcuded which is enhancement of epdg in 4G.

EAP is enhanced to have EAP 5G-start flow whenever IKE_AUTH is received without authentication payload.

Wireshark is not decoding this EAP section within the IKE session

If you would like to see this added to Wireshark you could either see if you can create the required update yourself and create a merge request on the Wireshark project on GitLab, or you could open an issue on the Wireshark project on GitLab, providing all these details and most importantly an exampe capture file to test with. Then maybe someone will pick this up and implement it for you.
