RFC 5191, "Protocol for Carrying Authentication for Network Access (PANA)", May 2008

Source of RFC: pana (int)

Section 4.3 says:

When the PAA initiates re-authentication, it sends a 
PANA-Auth-Request message containing the session identifier for the 
PaC.  The PAA MUST initiate EAP re-authentication before the current 
session lifetime expires.

It should say:

When the PAA initiates re-authentication, it sends a 
PANA-Auth-Request message containing the session identifier for the 
PaC.  In this case, the PAA MUST initiate EAP re-authentication 
before the current session lifetime expires.

Notes:

The 2nd sentence in the original text seems to indicate that re-authentication initiation from PAA is mandated, which is not correct as Section 3 says "the PAA may, and the PaC should, initiate re-authentication if they want to update the PANA session lifetime before the PANA session lifetime expires.
