Just below you are acknowledging the need for EAP over IP. I don't
understand how you can still claim you don't understand why PANA is
The framework doesn't seem to talk much about simple EAP over IP
scenarios, so I have assumed this is not the major focus.
You are aware that "virtual open-access AP" mode is OK. One of the
two alternatives we proposed had an issue, and the other one still holds.
Right. I was referring only to the WPA/WPA2 scenarios.
De-facto? Could you please elaborate how it is becoming a de-facto standard?
EAP over UDP is one of the foundation technologies for Network Endpoint
Assessment (NEA). As I understand it, EAPoUDP is being made available on
most operating systems, and is in the process of being deployed by many
Besides. Of course PANA is more complex than EAPoUDP. The latter (an
individual I-D) has very limited applicability.
As I understand it, EAP over UDP is mostly being deployed for wired access
scenarios where IEEE 802.1X might not work well (e.g. multiple hosts
sharing a port).
Which SDOs? Please give us more detail.
As I understand it, 3GPP2 has considered PANA, and IEEE 802.11 has
evaluated the PANA framework document.
