This parameter specifies the shared secret that will be used between this ServerRADSEC and the AuthBy RADSEC clients that will connect to it. The shared secret is used in the same was as Secret parameter in the Client clause: to encrypt passwords and generate message authenticators. The shared secret must be configured identically into ServerRADSEC and all the AuthBy RADSEC clients that will connect to it (regardless of whether TLS is enabled). Failure to do this will result in authentication errors. For compliance with RFC 6614, Secret defaults to 'radsec'.
