In order to derive a Domain-Specific Root Key (DSRK) from the Extended Master Session Key (EMSK) generated as a side-effect of an Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) method, the EAP peer must discover the name of the domain to which it is attached. This document specifies a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) option designed to allow a DHCP server to inform clients of the name of the local domain..
