EAP – Extensible Authentication Protocol

EAP is an extensible authentication framework and is not a specific authentication mechanism. Instead, EAP provides the means by which other authentication mechanisms can be transported by the EAP protocol. These authentication mechanisms are termed EAP methods, of which several exist including EAP-AKA, EAP-SIM and EAP-TLS, amongst many others.
