Title : Triggering AAA from DHCP Relay Agents
Author(s) : G. Tsirtsis, J. Privat
Filename : draft-ietf-dhc-aaa-ra-00.txt

Recently there has been interest in using DHCP for configuring
clients accessing the Internet through some form of high-speed access
technology such as cable or ADSL [DHC-AGENT]. In addition, although
DHCP was initially designed for configuring fixed hosts, proposals
are being made to enhance DHCP to support roaming/mobile clients
[DHC-ENHANCE]. These two trends have put in evidence the need for a
coupling between AAA and DHCP. Some initial requirements for DHCP/AAA
have been proposed in [DHC-AAA].
This document proposes a different model in which AAA procedures are
invoked not from a DHCP server but from a DHCP relay agent to make
sure that ALL the Internet Access features supported by the PPP model
can be replicated in a DHCP based Internet Access environment.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
