Title: An Extension for EAP-Only Authentication
Author: P. Eronen, H. Tschofenig,
Status: Standards Track
Date: September 2010
I-D Tag: draft-ietf-ipsecme-eap-mutual-05.txt
IKEv2 specifies that Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP)
authentication must be used together with responder authentication
based on public key signatures. This is necessary with old EAP
methods that provide only unilateral authentication using, e.g., one-
time passwords or token cards.
This document specifies how EAP methods that provide mutual
authentication and key agreement can be used to provide extensible
responder authentication for IKEv2 based on methods other than public
key signatures. [STANDARDS TRACK]
