RFC 3141 CDMA2000 Wireless Data Requirements June 2001

1. Introduction

The architecture is designed for use with a cellular network as an access medium. Sections 1, 2, present a brief high level review of the cdma2000 wireless data architecture. Section 3 presents cdma2000 AAA requirements.

This document specifies AAA requirements associated with a third generation cdma2000 wireless architecture that supports roaming among service providers for traditional PPP and Mobile IP services. The architecture is designed for use with a cellular network as an access medium.

Sections 1 and 2 present a brief, high level review of the cdma2000 wireless data architecture as an aid to interested AAA WG members. Section 3 presents cdma2000 AAA requirements, and is self contained relative to the architecture review.

1.1. Requirements language

In this document, the key words "MAY", "MUST, "MUST NOT", "optional", "recommended", "SHOULD", and "SHOULD NOT", are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Please note that the requirements specified in this document are to be used in evaluating AAA protocol submissions. As such, the requirements language refers to capabilities of these protocols; the protocol documents will specify whether these features are required, recommended, or optional. For example, requiring that a protocol support confidentiality is NOT the same thing as requiring that all protocol traffic be encrypted.

A protocol submission is not compliant if it fails to satisfy one or more of the MUST or MUST NOT requirements for the capabilities that it implements. A protocol submission that satisfies all the MUST, MUST NOT, SHOULD and SHOULD NOT requi...
