Technical Summary

This document specifies RADIUS attributes for authorization and
service provisioning of Network Access Server (NAS) management.
Both local and remote management are supported, with granular access 
rights and management privileges. Specific provisions are made for 
remote management via framed management protocols, and for 
specification of a protected transport protocol. 

Working Group Summary

There have been 2 WGLCs on the document. Much of the discussion on
the document has centered around the model for provisioning of 
protected transports, as well as the different remote administration
mechanisms (secure and insecure) to be supported. There has also
been discussion of the relationship between Framed Management 
(introduced in this draft) and the pseudo-TTY management model 
supported in RFC 2865.

Document Quality

The document was reviewed by the Juergen Schenwaelder for the ISMS WG and
by Vijay Gurbani for Gen-ART. 

Personnel

Bernard Aboba is the PROTO-shepherd, and Dan Romascanu is the responsible
AD.
