well looking at man wpa_supplicant I can see


so I assumed that this is an equivalent of EAP-TTLS/TLS.

also from my google searches it might be possible that windows supports
PEAP/TLS as well as PEAP/MSCHAPV2 and that's the main reason I'm trying to get
it to work because there is no EAP-TTLS/TLS support in windows. 

There is a concern in our organization with security of PEAP/MSCHAPV2 over Eduroam
because we don't really trust supplicants in windows, macs and various phones
to do the right thing (windows phone doesn't check the radius certificate for

I'll paste the full debug tomorrow when I'm back at the office.
