I played around with this a long time ago when I was hacking on
the TLS code. I think it will be hard finding a supplicant that
actually supports it - it might be possible to configure
wpa-supplicant to send a client cert with PEAP.

Generally you have two options - client cert auth, or
username/password auth. Trying to do both together seems
practically impossible. (We wanted to for staff laptops to verify
both the machine and the user - in the end settled on EAP-TLS to
get onto the network, then user has to log into the domain, which
was about as good as we could get.)
