Technical Summary The EAP Re-authentication Protocol (ERP) defines extensions to the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) to support efficient re- authentication between the peer and an EAP Re-authentication (ER) server through a compatible authenticator. This document specifies Diameter support for ERP. It defines a new Diameter ERP application to transport ERP messages between an ER authenticator and the ER server, and a set of new AVPs that can be used to transport the cryptographic material needed by the re-authentication server. Working Group Summary The I-D has been discussed extensively in the DIME WG and has reached the overall working group consensus. The work has been done in a cooperation with the Hokey WG that defined the EAP Re-authentication Protocol solution. Document Quality There are no publicly announced implementations of the protocol. Personnel Jouni Korhonen (email@example.com) is the document shepherd. Benoit Claise (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the responsible Area Director.
