This document describes the DIAMETER extension that is used for AAA
in a PPP/SLIP Dial-Up and Terminal Server Access environment. This
extension, combined with the base protocol, satisfies the
requirements defined in the NASREQ AAA criteria specification and the
ROAMOPS AAA Criteria specification.
Given that it is expected that initial deployments of the DIAMETER
protocol in a dial-up environment will include legacy systems, this
extension was carefully designed to ease the burden of servers that
must perform protocol conversion between RADIUS and DIAMETER. This
is achieved by re-using the RADIUS address space, eliminating the
need to perform attribute lookups.

up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
