We use Samba Winbind.
Check this link:

The same link has an example for it too (under EAP tls clause).

>3. Based on different authenticators available in JRadius, MSCHAPV2 seems to be the strongest authentication possible. Is that understanding fair?
MSCHAPV2 is not strong. But you have TLS tunnel established so it should be ok.

Already sent this email to David Bird, author of MSCHAPV2Authenticator of JRadius client and waiting for the reply.
Just sharing the same with mailing group so that I can receive response from at least one of folks if not David.
Here are my 3 questions.
