This document defines three new RADIUS attributes. For devices that
implement IP port ranges, these attributes are used to communicate
with a RADIUS server in order to configure and report TCP/UDP ports
and ICMP identifiers, as well as mapping behavior for specific hosts.
This mechanism can be used in various deployment scenarios such as
Carrier-Grade NAT, IPv4/IPv6 translators, Provider WLAN Gateway, etc.
Working Group Summary
The draft has working group consensus.
The document has received a fair amount of review. Of note is that
the shepherd report and document leave a decision up to IANA about
the method used for allocating the TLV-Type for the sub-TLVs defined
in this document. Two methods are possible and the WG leaves that
decision to IANA.
The document shepherd is Lionel Morand.
The responsible Area Director is Kathleen Moriarty.
This document requires new code point assignments for both IPFIX
Information Elements and RADIUS attributes. The specification also
requests the allocation of new RADIUS TLVs.
