Abstract

The Protocol for Carrying Authentication for Network Access (PANA) [RFC5191] carries Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) messages between a PANA Client (PaC) and a PANA Authentication Agent (PAA) in the access network. If the PaC is a mobile device and is capable of moving from one access network to another while running its applications, it is critical for the PaC to perform a handover seamlessly without degrading the performance of the applications during the handover period. When the handover requires the PaC to establish a PANA session with the PAA in the new access network, the signaling to establish the PANA session should be completed as fast as possible. See [RFC5836] for the handover latency requirements.

            Pre-Authentication Support for the Protocol for            Carrying Authentication for Network Access (PANA)

Abstract

   This document defines an extension to the Protocol for Carrying    Authentication for Network Access (PANA) for proactively establishing    a PANA Security Association between a PANA Client in one access    network and a PANA Authentication Agent in another access network to    which the PANA Client may move.
