Technical Summary This document specifies how the DTLS protocol may be used as a fix for security issues RADIUS has, namely authentication and encryption of RADIUS packets. The document also describes how implementations of the solution proposal can co-exist with current RADIUS systems. Working Group Summary The solution is a result of a long process in the WG. One of the last sticking issue was multiplexing of DTLS and RADIUS over port 1812. WG decided against multiplexing and the DTLS can only be used on existing RADSEC port. The WG has reached a consensus on the entire documented protocol. Document Quality There are two known implementations and one planned (if not done already). Personnel Jouni Korhonen (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the document shepherd. Benoit Claise (email@example.com) is the responsible AD.
