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.
