Hey Houman,

We're doing this using the that ships with openvpn 
and libpam-radius. In our ovpn conf:

     plugin path-to/ ovpn-0

where ovpn-0 is declared in /etc/pam.d/ovpn-0:

     account sufficient
     auth    required conf=/path/to/conf

Be aware that libpam-radius has not had a release since 2016 despite 
numerous fixes, so you will probably want to compile it from source.
