  CHAP
         [PPP] Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (PPP, RFC
  1334/1994)
         

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol
  CHAP
  
      (CHAP) An
     authentication scheme used by PPP servers to validate the
     identity of the originator of the connection upon connection
     or any time later.
  
     CHAP applies a three-way handshaking procedure.  After the
     link is established, the server sends a "challenge" message to
     the originator.  The originator responds with a value
     calculated using a one-way hash function.  The server checks
     the response against its own calculation of the expected hash
     value.  If the values match, the authentication is
     acknowledged; otherwise the connection is usually terminated.
  
     CHAP provides protection against playback attack through the
     use of an incrementally changing identifier and a variable
     challenge value.  The authentication can be repeated any time
     while the connection is open limiting the time of exposure to
     any single attack, and the server is in control of the
     frequency and timing of the challenges.  As a result, CHAP
     provides greater security then PAP.
  
     CHAP is defined in RFC 1334.
