English term or phrase:front-end the RADIUS server with a TTLS server
EAP-TTLS (Tunneled Transport Layer Security)
This EAP method eliminates the client-side certificates. It's intended for organisations that cannot enforce a strong password policy, but want to avoid the management complexity of client-side digital certificates. Instead, EAP-TTLS passes user credentials through an encrypted tunnel. EAP-TTLS is actually required in organisations that wish to retain a non-EAP RADIUS infrastructure, such as those running Microsoft Active Directory. Such enterprises must front-end the RADIUS server with a TTLS server, which will convert EAP requests to legacy authentication methods.
