Technical Summary This document provides guidance to designers of AAA key management protocols. The guidance is also useful to designers of systems and solutions that include AAA key management protocols. Given the complexity and difficulty in designing secure, long-lasting key management algorithms and protocols by experts in the field, it is almost certainly inappropriate for IETF working groups without deep expertise in the area to be designing their own key management algorithms and protocols based on Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) protocols. The guidelines in this document apply to documents requesting publication as IETF RFCs. Further, these guidelines will be useful to other standards development organizations (SDOs) that specify AAA key management. Working Group Summary This is an individual submission. It received significant last call comment and has been reviewed within the security and EAP communities. Protocol Quality This has been reviewed by Sam Hartman for the IESG.
