    Correct answer is PEAP.

    EAP by itself is only an authentication framework.

    PEAP (Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol) fully encapsulates EAP and is designed to work within a TLS (Transport Layer Security) tunnel that may be encrypted but is authenticated.
    The primary motivation behind the creation of PEAP was to help correct the deficiencies discovered within EAP since that protocol assumes that the communications channel are protected. As a result, when EAP messages are able to be discovered in the “clear” they do not provide the protection that was assumed when the protocol was originally authored.

    PEAP, EAP-TTLS, and EAP-TLS “protect” inner EAP authentication within SSL/TLS sessions.

    Keywords here are “a more secure wireless authentication… allows for encrypted authentication of wireless clients over TLS”

    PEAP-EAP-TLS requires client installation of a client-side digital certificate or a more secure smartcard. PEAP-EAP-TLS is very similar in operation to the original EAP-TLS but provides slightly more protection because portions of the client certificate that are unencrypted in EAP-TLS are encrypted in PEAP-EAP-TLS.

    Answer: B
