Yes, it does. eap_peap.c includes both the PEAPv0 ("Microsoft") and
PEAPv1 ("Cisco") implementation and both can be used with MSCHAPv2 and
GTC as inner authentication methods.

Please note that PEAPv1 has some interoperability issues since various
RADIUS servers implement it differently. I fixed couple of problems with
PEAPv1 just couple of days ago, so you may have to use the development
CVS snapshot with some servers. In addition, you may have to tweak
couple of parameters in wpa_supplicant.conf based on which server you
are using (most likely, add phase1="peaplabel0" for Cisco mode); see
eap_testing.txt for more details.
