Title : Protected EAP TLV
Author(s) : J. Salowey
Filename : draft-salowey-eap-protectedtlv-02.txt
Pages : 10
Date : 2003-7-2
EAP type-length-value (TLV) message types provide a mechanism for
encapsulating additional information in an EAP conversation. In some
cases it is useful to cryptographically protect this information to
maintain the integrity and/or privacy of the communication. This
document defines a TLV type that uses message authentication to
maintain the integrity of the data, encryption to protect the privacy
of the data and sequence numbers to protect replays or re-sequencing
of the data. Although protected TLVs must be chained after an
authentication mechanism that generates key material the protection
mechanism is independent of any particular authentication mechanism.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in

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
