Technical Summary

   The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) provides support for
   multiple authentication methods.  This document defines the EAP-NOOB
   authentication method for nimble out-of-band (OOB) authentication and
   key derivation.  The EAP method is intended for bootstrapping all
   kinds of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices that have no pre-configured
   authentication credentials.  The method makes use of a user-assisted
   one-directional OOB message between the peer device and
   authentication server to authenticate the in-band key exchange.  The
   device must have an input or output interface, such as a display,
   microphone, speaker or blinking light, which can send or receive
   dynamically generated messages of tens of bytes in length.

Working Group Summary

The document received a detailed early IoT directorate review.

Document Quality

At least three public implementations of the protocol are available:

2. contiki - https://github.com/eduingles/coap-eap-noob
3. hostap - https://github.com/Vogeltak/hostap

The protocol has security proofs:
1. Proverif: https://github.com/tuomaura/eap-noob/tree/master/protocolmodel/proverif
2. mcrl2: https://github.com/tuomaura/eap-noob/tree/master/protocolmodel/mcrl2
