      Diameter Support for the EAP Re-authentication Protocol (ERP)


   The EAP Re-authentication Protocol (ERP) defines extensions to the    Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) to support efficient    re-authentication between the peer and an EAP Re-authentication (ER)    server through a compatible authenticator.  This document specifies    Diameter support for ERP.  It defines a new Diameter ERP application    to transport ERP messages between an ER authenticator and the ER    server, and a set of new Attribute-Value Pairs (AVPs) that can be    used to transport the cryptographic material needed by the    re-authentication server.
