The Flexible Authentication via Secure Tunneling Extensible
Authentication Protocol (EAP-FAST) method enables secure
communication between a peer and a server by using Transport Layer
Security (TLS) to establish a mutually authenticated tunnel. Within
this tunnel, a basic password exchange, based on the Generic Token
Card method (EAP-GTC), may be executed to authenticate the peer. This
