Current Internet Service Providers (ISPs) scale their networks by using the RADIUS protocol, which provides user Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) of Dial-up PPP clients. The recent work done in the Roaming Operations (ROAMOPS) Working Group was to investigate whether RADIUS could be used in a roaming network, and concluded that RADIUS was ill-suited for inter-domain purposes.
