This document defines a set of vendor-specific RADIUS Attributes, allocated from the Cisco vendor space, that can be used to securely transfer cryptographic keying material using standard techniques with well-understood security properties. In addition, the Message- Authentication-Code Attribute may be used to provide strong authentication for any RADIUS message, including those used for accounting and dynamic authorization.

               Cisco Vendor-Specific RADIUS Attributes for                     the Delivery of Keying Material


   This document defines a set of vendor-specific RADIUS Attributes    designed to allow both the secure transmission of cryptographic    keying material and strong authentication of any RADIUS message.    These attributes have been allocated from the Cisco vendor-specific    space and have been implemented by multiple vendors.
