The Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) [1] provides a standard method for transporting multi-protocol datagrams over point-to-point links. PPP also defines an extensible Link Control Protocol, which allows negotiation of an Authentication Protocol for authentication its peer before allowing Network Layer protocols to transmit over the link. PPP Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) [2] provides for a number of authentication mechanisms. One of these is RSA Public Key Authentication. This document defines RSA Public Key Authentication Protocol within PPP EAP.
