PEAP without credentials

I thought the username/passwd is transfered while the shake-hand. So it
wouldn't be able to reuse this transfered (encrypted or not) password
for the connection? - Any maybe store it in a database for some time.
I am no crypt-expert, so I don't know if the user-password is transfered
crypted or not. When I look in my radius log, it shows me the clear-text
password of everyone who tries to auth. I would use that transfer to
copy username & Passwd and store it in a db, so for the rest of the auth
and autz the server would have the passwd. ... or am i wrong in my mind?
