We are looking into using freeRADIUS to provide authentications to our
Cisco IOS devices.

There is a very helpful guide on the wiki (, however, the article only lists
'Cleartext-Password' as an acceptable method for storing the user's
password attribute within freeRADIUS. Is it possible to use a more secure
method of storing the passwords that is compatible with Cisco IOS?
