PP-EAP – A Protected Password-Based EAP Method

This document defines the Protected Password-based Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) method.  PP-EAP is an EAP method that enables secure exchange of password authentication mechanisms between a peer and an EAP server by using the Transport Layer Security (TLS) to establish a server-authenticated TLS tunnel.  Within the tunnel, Type-Length-Value (TLV) objects are used to convey password-based authentication between the peer and the EAP server.

This document was developed within the “EAP Password based Method” design team.
