iSCSI SAN Configuration Guide ESX ESXi vCenter Server, page 37.

ESX/ESXi supports CHAP authentication at the adapter level. In this case, all targets receive the same CHAP name and secret from the iSCSI initiator. For software iSCSI, ESX/ESXi also supports per-target CHAP authentication, which allows you to configure different credentials for each target to achieve greater level of security.
