Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) require a username and password to be given on connection. Before access to the network is granted, this information is passed to a Network Access Server (NAS) device over the link-layer protocol and then to a RADIUS server over the RADIUS protocol. The RADIUS server checks that the information is correct using authentication schemes like PAP, CHAP or EAP.
