Title : IGMP for user Authentication Protocol (IGAP)

This memo documents the IGMP for user Authentication Protocol (IGAP),
a protocol developed by NTT, Nortel Networks and Panasonic. IGAP
extends the existing IGMPv2 protocol to add user authentication
functionality, accounting functionality and status notification
functionality. IGAP is only used in IPv4 environment. In a controlled
or managed multicast environment, IGAP can be used to replace IGMP
for group membership communication between hosts and their associated
first hop routers. The user authentication information in IGAP can
enable a provider to control the distribution of the multicast
traffic as well as collecting real time user accounting information
in an environment where the last hop access networks are not shared.

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
