In order to provide inter-domain authentication services, it is necessary to have a standardized method that domains can use to identify each others users. This document defines the syntax for the Network Access Identifier (NAI), the user identity submitted by the client prior to accessing network resources. This document is a revised version of RFC 4282 [RFC4282], which addresses issues with international character sets, as well as a number of other corrections to the previous document.
