The naming extensions to the Generic Security Service Application
Programming Interface (GSS-API) provide a mechanism for applications
to discover authorization and personalization information associated
with GSS-API names.  The Extensible Authentication Protocol GSS-API
mechanism allows an Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting
(AAA) peer to provide authorization attributes alongside an
authentication response.  It also supplies mechanisms to process
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) messages provided in the
AAA response.  This document describes how to use the Naming
Extensions API to access that information.

This document is a product of the Application Bridging for Federated Access Beyond web Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
