Throughout the document, when it says:

[Missing sections when RFC 4005 was obsoleted by RFC 7155]

It should say:

4.7 AVPs Used Only for Compatibility

   The AVPs defined in this section SHOULD only be used for backwards
   compatibility when a Diameter/RADIUS translation function is invoked
   and are not typically originated by Diameter systems during normal

4.7.1.  Origin-AAA-Protocol

   The Origin-AAA-Protocol AVP (AVP Code 408) is of the type Enumerated
   and should be inserted in a Diameter message translated by a gateway
   system from another AAA protocol, such as RADIUS.  It identifies the
   source protocol of the message to the Diameter system receiving the

   The supported values are:

         1       RADIUS


The description of Origin-AAA-Protocol (AVP Code 408) is missing from RFC 7155. The AVP is documented in RFC 4005 section 9.3.6.

The proposed corrected text contains RFC 4005 section 9.3 as RFC 7155 section 4.7, and RFC 4005 section 9.3.6 as RFC 7155 section 4.7.1. All other AVPs in RFC 4005 section 9.3.x are not listed because they are documented in their relevant standards already.

RFC 7155 is listed as the Reference for Origin-AAA-Protocol in multiple locations in https://www.iana.org/assignments/aaa-parameters/aaa-parameters.xhtml

It appears that there may be an accidental omission of Origin-AAA-Protocol when RFC 7155 obsoleted RFC 4005.

The Origin-AAA-Protocol AVP is referenced in other sections in RFC 7155:
- 3.1. AA-Request (AAR) Command
- 3.2. AA-Answer (AAA) Command
- 3.3. Re-Auth-Request (RAR) Command
- 3.4. Re-Auth-Answer (RAA) Command
- 3.5. Session-Termination-Request (STR) Command
- 3.6. Session-Termination-Answer (STA) Command
- 3.7. Abort-Session-Request (ASR) Command
- 3.8. Abort-Session-Answer (ASA) Command
- 3.9. Accounting-Request (ACR) Command
- 3.10. Accounting-Answer (ACA) Command
