"Here we'll take a look at six different open and free Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) servers available for Linux (and other platforms). You'll find something that will work for you, whether you're supporting dial-up or VPN users, offering 802.1X for Wi-Fi security, or running VoIP. All your Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) needs can be met on a Linux server.

"FreeRADIUS

"The FreeRADIUS project was founded in June of 1999 by Miquel van Smoorenburg and Alan DeKok. Its freely available via the GNU General Public License, Version 2 (GPLv2) for running on Linux, other Unix-like systems, and even Windows. Since the first stable release in 2001 there have been feature improvements and bug fixes released every couple of months. There is extensive community support via documentation, a Wiki, mailing lists, and tutorials throughout the Internet. Commercial support is also available from consulting firms like Network RADIUS."
