Agent and the Diameter server (AAA) in the case where the network access
service and the mobility service is not in the same administrative domain.
The purpose of the interactions is to bootstrap the mobile node from the
MSP as part of the authentication and/or authorization process.

    The document defines new diameter applications to support IKEv2 and

command codes to carry the authentication, authorization and bootstrapping
attributes.
