A Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD) is a file describing the expected use of a class of devices, usually an Internet of Things class of devices. It is prepared by a manufacturer and placed on a generally available web server, and is addressable via a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). The URI is often included in a discovery protocol (e.g., DNS, LLDP). A Network Access Server (NAS) in the path of the discovery protocol can collect and forward the URI to a RADIUS server, which processes the URI. This draft defines the RADIUS extension needed for the NAS to forward the URI to the RADIUS server.
