This document defines a master key used between a client of the
Protocol for carrying Authentication for Network Access (PANA) and an
enforcement point, for bootstrapping lower-layer ciphering.  The
master key is derived from the Master Session Key of the Extensible
Authentication Protocol as a result of successful PANA
authentication.  The master key guarantees cryptographic independence
among enforcement points bootstrapped from PANA authentication across
different address families.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
