This document defines the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP),
an authentication framework which supports multiple authentication
methods.  EAP typically runs directly over data link layers such as
Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) or IEEE 802, without requiring IP.  EAP
provides its own support for duplicate elimination and retransmission,
but is reliant on lower layer ordering guarantees.  Fragmentation is
not supported within EAP itself; however, individual EAP methods may
support this.

This document obsoletes RFC 2284.  A summary of the changes between
this document and RFC 2284 is available in Appendix A.

This document is a product of the Extensible Authentication Protocol
Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
