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.
