   Perfect-Forward Secrecy for the Extensible Authentication Protocol
       Method for Authentication and Key Agreement (EAP-AKA' PFS)

Abstract

   Many different attacks have been reported as part of revelations
   associated with pervasive surveillance.  Some of the reported attacks
   involved compromising smart cards, such as attacking SIM card
   manufacturers and operators in an effort to compromise shared secrets
   stored on these cards.  Since the publication of those reports,
   manufacturing and provisioning processes have gained much scrutiny
   and have improved.  However, the danger of resourceful attackers for
   these systems is still a concern.

   This specification is an optional extension to the EAP-AKA'
   authentication method which was defined in RFC 5448 (to be superseded
   by draft-ietf-emu-rfc5448bis).  The extension, when negotiated,
   provides Perfect Forward Secrecy for the session key generated as a
   part of the authentication run in EAP-AKA'.  This prevents an
   attacker who has gained access to the long-term pre-shared secret in
   a SIM card from being able to decrypt all past communications.  In
   addition, if the attacker stays merely a passive eavesdropper, the
   extension prevents attacks against future sessions.  This forces
   attackers to use active attacks instead.
