It takes a special kind of dedication to make PEAP work, but to break
EAP-TLS. i.e. you have to write *extra* code in the AP to look for
EAP-TLS. Then, you have to do something different from PEAP.
If the AP manufacturer instead supported EAP (*any* kind), then PEAP
would work. TTLS would work. TLS would work. EAP-FAST would work.
I've seen RADIUS servers that do this kind of thing (Merit). It's
good for everyone that no one uses those products any more.
