      Using Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting Services
        to Dynamically Provision View-Based Access Control Model
                         User-to-Group Mappings

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols.  It describes the use of
   information provided by Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting
   (AAA) services, such as the Remote Authentication Dial-In User
   Service (RADIUS), to dynamically update user-to-group mappings in the
   View-based Access Control Model (VACM).
