Radext wg

  • See

  • RADIUS Extensions

    • The RADIUS Extensions Working Group will focus on extensions to theRADIUS protocol required to define extensions to the standard attribute space as well as to address cryptographic algorithm agility and use over new transports.

    • In addition, RADEXT will work on RADIUS Design Guidelines and define new attributes for particular applications of authentication, authorization andaccounting such as NAS management and local area network (LAN) usage.

  • Updates [July2014]

    • Submitted for publication: RADIUS Attributes for IEEE 802 Networks, see Currently in AUTH48 review

    • New version posted: Support of fragmentation if RADIUS packets, see

    • New version available: “DTLS as a transport layer for RADIUS”, see
