Technical Summary The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is defined in RFC 3748. This document defines a mechanism that allows an access network to provide identity selection hints to an EAP peer. The purpose is to assist the EAP peer in selecting an appropriate Network Access Identifier (NAI). This is especially useful when the access network does not have a direct roaming relationship with the peer's home network, so that a mediating network, such as a roaming consortium or broker, is used. The mechanism defined in this document is primarily intended for advertising connectivity of access network to a limited number of roaming partners that find such advertisement useful. Working Group Summary This document was an individual submission, but it was reviewed by the EAP WG. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman. RFC Editor Note Please include the following IESG note in this document: EAP Identity Selection was developed by 3GPP. Documentation is provided as information to the Internet community. The EAP WG has verified that this specification is compatible with EAP as defined in RFC 3748. Required 3GPP client behavior is described in 3GPP TS 24.234.
