Why do you think you want to do this?

EAP methods typically define the format of the data exchanged; you can't 
just add extra data willy nilly.

Most EAP methods are in fact cryptographically signed/secure, which is 
the whole point.

So, you can update the EAP-Message attribute - but basically that 
implies that you're implementing or modifying an EAP method, and that 
usually requires matching support on the client side, so it's probably 

What are you trying to accomplish?
