Title : Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP)

This document specifies an Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP)
mechanism for mutual authentication and session key generation in a
roaming environment. The server authentication and the negotiation of
the session key is done using the PPP EAP Transport Layer Security
(TLS) Authentication Protocol. The user authenticates using a PPP EAP
mechanism, integrity and privacy protected by TLS. In essence, a
wrapping of EAP inside TLS inside EAP is specified. An important
application discussed in this document is to provide authentication
of access points and stations within an IEEE 802.11 Wireless Local
Area Network (WLAN), but other applications such as LAN access over
Bluetooth might also be considered in the future.

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
