Technical Summary
 
   The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is defined in RFC 3748.
   This document defines a mechanism that allows an access network to
   provide identity selection hints to an EAP peer.  The purpose is to
   assist the EAP peer in selecting an appropriate Network Access
   Identifier (NAI).  This is especially useful when the access network
   does not have a direct roaming relationship with the peer's home
   network, so that a mediating network, such as a roaming consortium or
   broker, is used.

   The mechanism defined in this document is primarily intended for
   advertising connectivity of access network to a limited number of
   roaming partners that find such advertisement useful.

Working Group Summary
