Decrypted radius password shows appended characters

asked 2023-05-23 21:49:47 +0000

I am setting up radius for various pieces of equipment on my network. I have set up a wireshark capture such that the shared key is used to decryrpt the password in the radius access-request packet. Here is what I am getting in these packets:

well, apparently I can't upload a screen cap of this until I have 60 points or something...nice.

so my decyrpted password shows up correctly but is appended by a string of random characters. I don't see this on other equipment's packets. Why is this happening?

I don't think so...I'm using version 4.0.5. Also, the shared key and same password are used on other devices and they work fine and show the password correctly in the wireshark access-request packet. This has something to do with how the client is communicating with the radius server and I'm trying to figure out why.

Could you make a capture file with no sensitive information that you can share?
Or you can open an issue on Gitlab and mark it as confidential to restrict access to core developers.
