The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is a generic framework
supporting multiple types of authentication methods.  In systems
where EAP is used for authentication, it is desirable to not repeat
the entire EAP exchange with another authenticator.  This document
specifies extensions to EAP and the EAP keying hierarchy to support
an EAP method-independent protocol for efficient re-authentication
between the peer and an EAP re-authentication server through any
authenticator.  The re-authentication server may be in the home
network or in the local network to which the peer is connecting.  

This document is a product of the Handover Keying Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: 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.
