Speaking of a radar - is an implementation of the Diameter protocol something 
you have on that radar as well?
To my knowledge, no real usable implementation exists. The only serious thing 
on Open Source side I have seen is opendiameter (www.opendiameter.org), but 
they are only providing libraries for Diameter internals so far. If you want 
to do a real, practical task, like "I would like to authnuse Active Directory 
as a backend authentication and TTLS-PAP for the credential transport" you 
are pretty much on your own right now.
