A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.


	Title		: Protected EAP TLV

	Pages		: 10

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.

In the body type:
	"FILE /internet-drafts/draft-salowey-eap-protectedtlv-02.txt".
	
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.
