Active Directory does not supply clear-text passwords to FreeRADIUS.
In many cases, Active Directory doesn't *have* the clear-text passwords.

  Digest authentication is impossible when the passwords are in Active
Directory.  Sorry.

  Yes.  ntlm_auth will not help you.

  Use another database, like OpenLDAP or MySQL.  Active Directory is
responsible for making Digest authentication impossible.

  No.  There is NOTHING you can do except use another database.

 The Openser , Active Directory and FreeRadius support TLS. Can I use it for solve my problem? Or is this a bad ideia?
