It is expected that future IP devices will have a variety of access
technologies to gain network connectivity.  Currently there are
access-specific mechanisms for providing client information to the
network for authentication and authorization purposes.  In addition
to being limited to specific access media (e.g., 802.1X for IEEE 802
links), some of these protocols are limited to specific network
topologies (e.g., PPP for point-to-point links).  The goal of this
document is to identify the requirements for a link-layer agnostic
protocol that allows a host and a network to authenticate each other
for network access.  This protocol will run between a client's device
and an agent in the network where the agent might be a client of the
AAA infrastructure.

This document is a product of the Protocol for Carrying Authentication
for Network Access Working Group of the IETF.
