Title : EAP GSS Authentication Protocol

The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) provides a standard
mechanism for support of multiple authentication methods, including
public key, smart cards, Kerberos, One Time Passwords, and others. EAP
typically runs directly over the link layer without requiring IP and
therefore includes its own support for in-order delivery and re-
transmission. While EAP was originally developed for use with PPP, it is
also now in use with IEEE 802. The encapsulation of EAP on IEEE 802
links is described within IEEE 802.1X.

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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
