Technical Summary This document defines an Extensible Authentication Protocol method called EAP Generalized Pre-Shared Key (EAP-GPSK). This method is a lightweight shared-key authentication protocol supporting mutual authentication and key derivation. The method should be able to support any future EAP channel binding requirements. Working Group Summary The base document for EAP-GPSK was originally created by a design team. There was working group consensus to accept the document to meet the Pre-Shared-Key EAP method on the working group charter. Document Quality There is an existing implementation of the protocol. NIST was consulted and participated in the review of the document resulting in some modifications to the key derivation function. The document has been reviewed by external researchers and their feedback has been incorporated. EAP experts within the EMU working group have reviewed the document. This document meets requirements set forth in RFC 3748, RFC 4017, and RFC 5247. Personnel Joe Salowey is the document shepherd. The responsible Area Director is Pasi Eronen.
