0001171: authentication::radius should support "encrypted" RADIUS authentication
Right now our authentication::radius module seems to be doing only plaintext password checking. RADIUS supports other means which are encrypted*.

We rely on Authen::Radius for RADIUS Authentication but we would probably need to find a better client module that supports CHAP. Then again it might be something that is negotiated at the server side then we should try to make it work and document how to do it.

It was requested on the mailing list.

*: the means are considered insecure but it's better than to see cleartext passwords in freeradius' debug output
No tags attached.
