rlm_chap (5) - Linux Man Pages
rlm_chap: FreeRADIUS Module
NAMErlm_chap - FreeRADIUS Module
DESCRIPTIONThe rlm_chap module provides CHAP functionality.
This module validates a user with CHAP authentication. If called in Authorize, it will look for CHAP-Password attribute in the Acess-Request and adds an Auth-Type attribute set to CHAP if the Config-Items list unless Auth-Type has already set.
CHAP authentication requires access to the clear-text password for the user. Standard Unix system authentication or passwords encrypted via crypt() are not compatible with CHAP.
