Protocol for carrying Authentication for Network Access (PANA)

PANA is a protocol used to authenticate users before granting network access. PANA is an IP based protocol and it enables the client to interact with a back-end AAA server, deployed in the network provide's domain. It enables the client to authenticate against the AAA server without using link-layer specific mechanisms or knowing the specific AAA protocol. PANA can be used on both multi-access and point-to-point links and it supports various authentication methods, dynamic network provider selection, and roaming clients. PANA does not define any new authentication mechanism but it uses EAP to transfer authentication related data. Any authentication method on top of EAP can be used in PANA.
