Title : RADIUS Attributes for soBGP Support
Author(s) : C. Lonvick
Filename : draft-lonvick-sobgp-radius-02.txt
Pages : 19
Date : 2003-1-23
This document defines a set of RADIUS attributes designed to support
the provisioning of the soBGP protocol. A router will encapsulate
the components of an AuthCert or PolicyCert into TLVs and transport
them to a centralized server capable of verifying the associated
This draft goes along with other IDs submitted for Secure Origin BGP
(soBGP) both of which are edited by James Ng and Russ White. draft-
white-sobgp-bgp-deployment-00.txt , draft-ng-sobgp-bgp-extensions-
00.txt  Mostly this work relates to 'Extensions to BGP to Support
Secure Origin BGP (soBGP)' and is explained in additional detail in
'Deployment Considerations for Secure Origin BGP (soBGP)'. The
purpose of this draft is to explain the concept of offloading the
Authcert validation steps, and the Entitycert storage, from the
router. RADIUS may not be the best way to do this but it's the best
that I know of at this moment. Once the concepts of soBGP are
discussed, the transport to support offload should be reviewed and a
proper mechanism should be chosen.

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.
