Technical Summary A NAS (network access server) may choose to authenticate the identity of a device before granting that device access to the network. The IEEE 802.1X protocol is an example of a mechanism for providing authenticated layer 2 network access. A network element using RADIUS as an authentication authority will receive attributes from a RADIUS server that may be used by a DHCP server in the selection of configuration parameters to be delivered to sub-option enables a network element to pass along attributes for the user of a device received during RADIUS authentication to a DHCP server. Working Group Summary This document is the work of the DHCP WG. It was reviewed extesively by Bernard Aboba during AD review and IETF Last Call. Protocol Quality This document was reviews for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman.
