Technical Summary

  This specification defines a new EAP method, EAP-AKA', a small
  revision of the EAP-AKA method.  The change is a new key derivation
  function that binds the keys derived within the method to the name of
  the access network.  The new key derivation mechanism has been defined
  in 3GPP.  This specification allows its use in EAP in an interoperable
  manner.  In addition, EAP-AKA' employs SHA-256 instead of SHA-1.
