G'day Cory,

In CHAP, the password never goes over the wire (which is its so-called 
benefit - I think "Challenge-Response Authentication Protocol" would 
make for a more appropriate acronym), so freeradius has no idea what the 
end user entered, only that the challenge-response process failed. 
Chap-Password indicates this.
