Technical Summary

  This document specifies how the DTLS protocol may be used as a fix
  for security issues RADIUS has, namely authentication and encryption of
  RADIUS packets.  The document also describes how implementations
  of the solution proposal can co-exist with current RADIUS systems.

Working Group Summary

   The solution is a result of a long process in the WG. One of the last
   sticking issue was multiplexing of DTLS and RADIUS over port 1812.
   WG decided against multiplexing and the DTLS can only be used on
   existing RADSEC port. The WG has reached a consensus on the
   entire documented protocol.

Document Quality

   There are two known implementations and one planned (if not
   done already).
