             Name Attributes for the GSS-API EAP mechanism
                   draft-ietf-abfab-gss-eap-naming-01

Abstract

   The naming extensions to the Generic Security Services Application
   Programming interface provide a mechanism for applications to
   discover authorization and personalization information associated
   with GSS-API names.  The Extensible Authentication Protocol GSS-API
   mechanism allows an Authentication/Authorization/Accounting peer to
   provide authorization attributes along side an authentication
   response.  It also provides mechanisms to process Security Assertion
   Markup Language (SAML) messages provided in the AAA response.  This
   document describes the necessary information to use the naming
   extensions API to access that information.

1.  Introduction

   The naming extensions [I-D.ietf-kitten-gssapi-naming-exts]to the
   Generic Security Services Application Programming interface (GSS-API)
   [RFC2743] provide a mechanism for applications to discover
   authorization and personalization information associated with GSS-API
   names.  The Extensible Authentication Protocol GSS-API mechanism
   [I-D.ietf-abfab-gss-eap] allows an Authentication/Authorization/
   Accounting peer to provide authorization attributes along side an
   authentication response.  It also provides mechanisms to process
   Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) messages provided in the
   AAA response.  Other mechanisms such as SAML EC
   [I-D.ietf-kitten-sasl-saml-ec] also support SAML assertions and
   attributes carried in the GSS-API.  This document describes the
   necessary information to use the naming extensions API to access SAML
   assertions in the federated context and AAA attributes.
