Internet-Draft             PANA AVP Encryption               August 2012

1.  Introduction

   PANA [RFC5191] is a UDP-based protocol to perform EAP authentication
   between a PaC (PANA Client) and a PAA (PANA Authentication Agent).

   Various types of payloads are exchanged as part of the network access
   authentication and authorization.  These payloads are carried in
   AVPs.  AVPs can be integrity-protected using the AUTH AVP when EAP
   authentication generates cryptographic keying material.  PANA AVPs
   are transmitted in the clear (i.e., not encrypted).

   There are certain types of payloads that need to be delivered
   privately (e.g., network keys, private identifiers, etc.).  This
   document defines a mechanism for applying encryption to selected
   AVPs.

1.1.  Specification of Requirements

   In this document, several words are used to signify the requirements
   of the specification.  These words are often capitalized.  The key
   words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD",
   "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document
   are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

2.  Details

   Encr-Encap AVP is used for delivering AVPs in encrypted form.

   Each AVP that requires encryption SHALL be encapsulated inside an
   Encr-Encap AVP.  Encr-Encap AVP can encapsulate one or more AVPs.
