we are starting with 802.1x wired authentication and i wanted to ask, if it is possible to use the AP as a supplicant. 
so the AP authenticates itself on the switch with 802.1x so the switchport is only open, when the AP is connected. The wireless devices itself are authenticated via 802.1x of the AP. Is this possible?
Cisco documentation says, that on static trunk port 802.1x should work:

The IEEE 802.1X protocol is supported only on Layer 2 static-access ports, Layer 2 static-trunk ports, voice VLAN-enabled ports, and Layer 3 routed ports.

we are running a vSZ

i have found the option to enable 802.1x on the port of the AP and also i can set a Username and Password. 
But the AP tries to use EAP-MD5 which is insecure. Is there a possibility to change it?

Did you get any further on this? I'm facing the same issue.
