In perl script $RAD_REQUEST{'User-Name'} returns the username of
the EAP request message. How can I get the password of the
EAP request? $RAD_REQUEST{'User-Password'} won't return the password.

[<Tim>] You can't. RADIUS Access-Request packets that use EAP do not send
the password to the RADIUS server. The only attributes you can access are
the ones sent in the RADIUS request, which are listed below in the debug


rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host port 50168, id=207,
        User-Name = "test"
        NAS-IP-Address =
        NAS-Identifier = "belair"
        NAS-Port = 0
        Called-Station-Id = "00-0D-67-12-15-80:SSO_BelAir-PMIP-8021x"
        Calling-Station-Id = "00-26-4A-FC-EB-B2"
        Framed-MTU = 1400
        NAS-Port-Type = Wireless-802.11
        Connect-Info = "CONNECT 11Mbps 802.11b"
        EAP-Message = 0x020100060319
        State = 0xce81437fce8047c9464d6ff62d386d00
