Technical Summary

  The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is a generic framework
  supporting multiple types of authentication methods.

  The EAP Re-authentication Protocol (ERP) specifies extensions to EAP
  and the EAP keying hierarchy to support an EAP method-independent
  protocol for efficient re-authentication between the peer and an EAP
  re-authentication server through any authenticator.

  Authenticated Anticipatory Keying (AAK) is a method by which
  cryptographic keying material may be established upon one or more
  candidate attachment points (CAPs) prior to handover.  AAK uses the
  AAA infrastructure for key transport.

  This document specifies the extensions necessary to enable AAK
  support in ERP.
