Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) and Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) This lesson covers different methods of remote authentication. Three of these methods of remote authentication include:

  • Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP)

  • Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP)

Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) is a one-way authentication for remote access connection. CHAP does not send credentials in clear text, nor does it verify the end point. There is also a Microsoft enhanced version of CHAP called MSCHAP that utilizes two-way authentication. Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is a framework for authentication and is a standardized authentication method which allows us to configure devices to authenticate according to a network's authentication method. EAP runs over the data-link layer and does not need an IP address.
