eap-peap and eap-tls question

Experts,

This should be an easy one.

I know with EAP-TLS, the supplicant sends a certificate to the authenticator server.

Am I correc to say that with EAP-PEAP, the supplicant sends a username and password to the authenticator server? It never sends a Certificate?

EAP-TLS is authentication with certificates

EAP-PEAP is just setting up a secure tunnel, and validation of radius server. Within that tunnel the client can pass authentication information.
So EAP type could be PEAP - and inner authentication method can still be EAP-TLS using certificates or MsChap V2 using domain username and password.

this would be the easy explanation .... really EAP is part of a framework. But for your question, this easy would do --- (Or else I'd have to look into my books to get it all correctly :-) )
