EAP Methods

FreeRADIUS was the first Open Source RADIUS server to support EAP. It has defined the standard for how RADIUS servers should manage EAP sessions. As of Version 2.0, it supports more EAP methods than any other RADIUS server, commercial or Open Source.

The following EAP methods are supported by FreeRADIUS 2.0 and later for wired, or for WiFi authentication.

Stable EAP Methods

The following EAP methods are considered "stable", and work with all versions of FreeRADIUS.

Old EAP Methods

The following EAP methods are distributed with the server, but should not be used. They will likely be removed in a future version.

Version 2 EAP Methods

The following EAP methods are considered "experimental" in Version 2. They are implemented via the "eap2" module, by using the library libeap.so from hostapd.

The "eap2" module was removed with the release of version 3.0.0. It was experimental, and not well integrated with the rest of the server.
