In order to derive a Domain-Specific Root Key (DSRK) from the
Extended Master Session Key (EMSK) generated as a side effect of an
Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) method, the EAP peer must
discover the name of the domain to which it is attached.

This document specifies a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

clients using the EAP Re-authentication Protocol (ERP) EAP method of
the name of the local domain for ERP.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
