While RFC 2865 defines the Filter-Id attribute,
it requires that the Network Access Server (NAS) be pre-populated with
the desired filters.  However, in situations where the server operator
does not know which filters have been pre-populated, it is useful to
specify filter rules explicitly.  This document defines the
NAS-Filter-Rule attribute within the Remote Authentication Dial In
User Service (RADIUS).  This attribute is based on the Diameter
NAS-Filter-Rule Attribute Value Pair (AVP) described in RFC 4005, and
the IPFilterRule syntax defined in RFC 3588.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
