Does anyone know what the differency is between Authentication InnerMethod and OuterMethod?

In CPPM, I used AD credentials for 802.1X authentication. I noticed my 'Authentication: InnerMethod' is EAP-MSCHAP2 and my 'Authentication: OutterMethod' is EAP-PEAP. What does this mean?

Thank you!

Outer method can be an anonymous identity outside the tunnel and inner is the real identity that gets check against the authentication server.

Thank you for your reply!

Do you know any document explaining this with details?

It's part of the EAP RFCs. You'll find plenty of information there.
