A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Point-to-Point Protocol Extensions Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP)
Author(s) : L. Blunk, J. Vollbrecht, B. Aboba, J. Carlson
Filename : draft-ietf-pppext-rfc2284bis-09.txt
Pages : 39

This document defines the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), an
authentication framework which supports multiple authentication mecha-
nisms. EAP typically runs directly over the link layer without requiring
IP, but is reliant on lower layer ordering guarantees as in PPP and IEEE
802. EAP does provide its own support for duplicate elimination and
retransmission. Fragmentation is not supported within EAP itself; how-
ever, individual EAP methods may support this. While EAP was originally
developed for use with PPP, it is also now in use with IEEE 802.
This document obsoletes RFC 2284.

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
