The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is a generic framework
supporting multiple types of authentication methods.

The EAP Re-authentication Protocol (ERP) 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.

Authenticated Anticipatory Keying (AAK) is a method by which
cryptographic keying material may be established upon one or more
Candidate Attachment Points (CAPs) prior to handover.  AAK uses the
AAA infrastructure for key transport.

This document specifies the extensions necessary to enable AAK
support in ERP.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
