Technical Summary
   This document describes the Diameter protocol application used for
   Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) services in the
   Network Access Server (NAS) environment. This application
   specification, when combined with the Diameter Base protocol,
   Transport Profile, and Extensible Authentication  Protocol
   specifications, satisfies typical network access services

   Initial deployments of the Diameter protocol are expected to include
   legacy systems. Therefore, this application was carefully designed to
   ease the burden of protocol conversion between RADIUS and Diameter.
   This is achieved by including the RADIUS attribute space, and
   eliminating the need to perform many attribute translations.
