The Diameter base protocol [RFC6733] is intended to provide an Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) framework for applications such as network access or IP mobility in both local and roaming situations. This protocol provides the ability for Diameter peers to exchange messages carrying data in the form of Attribute- Value Pairs (AVPs).

                 Diameter Applications Design Guidelines


   The Diameter base protocol provides facilities for protocol    extensibility enabling the definition of new Diameter applications or    modification of existing applications.  This document is a companion    document to the Diameter base protocol that further explains and    clarifies the rules to extend Diameter.  Furthermore, this document    provides guidelines to Diameter application designers reusing/    defining Diameter applications or creating generic Diameter    extensions.
