This document describes the Handover Keying (HOKEY) re-authentication
problem statement.  The current Extensible Authentication Protocol
(EAP) keying framework is not designed to support re-authentication
and handovers without re-executing an EAP method.  This often causes
unacceptable latency in various mobile wireless environments.  This
document details the problem and defines design goals for a generic
mechanism to reuse derived EAP keying material for handover.  This memo 
provides information for the Internet community.

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