Apple has announced RADIUS in MAC OSX Leopard

Apple has announced that they're including RADIUS in MAC OSX Leopard. The RADIUS server of choice is naturally FreeRADIUS.

I was given a preview of it at the recent Apple WWDC, and though I can't say much, I'm impressed. It's simple, clean, and solves the basic problems needed by many people who are deploying a RADIUS solution.

Not all of the servers configuration was exposed through the GUI, of course. Instead, the common use-cases were covered, while the potential still exists for creating more complex configurations by hand.

I know I'm excited to see the install base of FreeRADIUS double (or more). This means I'll probably have to include a chapter on Leopard in my book, which is a good thing.
