Title : Secure Network Access Using Router Discovery and AAA

Internet access through public networks require authentication of
clients and networks to each other. While there are currently used
link-layer protocols such as PPP, it is very desirable to provide a
network-layer solution that can work across multiple types of links.
Authentication of roaming clients is generally handled by AAA
protocols. In order to use AAA between the network and the client, we
need a protocol to carry required messages. This draft defines how we
can extend the standard router discovery protocol to use it as a
carrier for the authentication purposes.

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
