The Remote Authentication Dial-In User Server (RADIUS) protocol has,
until now, required the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) as the underlying
transport layer.  This document defines RADIUS over the Transmission
Control Protocol (RADIUS/TCP), in order to address handling issues
related to RADIUS over Transport Layer Security (RADIUS/TLS).  It
permits TCP to be used as a transport protocol for RADIUS only when a
transport layer such as TLS or IPsec provides confidentiality and
security.  This document defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet
