COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This document is clearly written. Thanks.

I am also confused by this sentence at the end of section 4.1 about failed
authentication: “It may still be possible for the user to access the network by
being redirected to a web portal.”

I suggest “...access the network by redirecting a clear text webpage to a web
portal.”  I was a bit confused by the original wording.

As I said in the architecture review, the term for the user portal keeps
changing. Over there it’s called a “Captive Portal Server” and a “web portal
server”. Here it’s a “user-portal.” The authors of the two docs should get
together and agree on a term.

One nit:
