"CHAP requires that both the client and server know the plaintext of the
/etc/(master.)passwd uses a one-way password hash. The server cannot
know the secret. You'll need a separate database.
It might be possible to use a pam module to use either CHAP directly, or
reference whatever second database you have, so you still only have one
set of passwords. I have no specific suggestions here though.
