I think it is easy o do if you can get a RADIUS key, and thus enter in
the Eduroam network, almost officially. Else, the client connected from
the community network to the 802.1x AP should be able to set-up
multiple EAPOL sessions with the Eduroam AP, each one for a different
client somewhere else in the community network, probably with a spoofed
MAC address and then tunnel it to the real client. Then you have PTK
negotiations that are l-2 packet and you should tunnel them too, per
client... If I understood what you mean, I see it pretty hard to do.
