Hello all, I wanted to see if I could get some advice on how to integrate Keycloak with FreeRADIUS . I wanted our users to be able to use their Keycloak credentials to authenticate to our wifi through FreeRadius. I don't see much online for how the two can work together. I already have Keycloak setup and FreeRadius up and running. Now I need the two to talk to each other. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
