transport) is in the RFC Editor's Queue awaiting publication
of IETF standards-track Tunneled EAP later this year - see

This document specifies PT-EAP, an Extensible Authentication Protocol
(EAP) based Posture Transport (PT) protocol designed to be used only
inside a TLS protected EAP tunnel method. The document also
describes the intended applicability of PT-EAP.
Working Group Summary
In the call for proposals for Posture Transport (PT) specifications, there
were two submissions for an EAP-based PT: one using an EAP method
within an EAP tunnel method, and the other using a TLV format within an
EAP tunnel method. Many discussions were had in the WG on the pros and
cons of each approach. No consensus could be reached. Hence, the AD of
the Working Group (Stephen Farrell) made the selection with the
agreement that the WG would abide by the decision. Stephen selected the
EAP method approach in a message to the NEA WG dated 24 Aug 2011
WG then adopted the EAP method proposal as a WG document, and
followed the normal process from there. There is WG consensus to move
this document forward.
There are no known vendor implementations of this particular
but there are existing implementations of an EAP method which is similar
what is currently specified. This document was reviewed by several people
in the EMU WG, and no objections were raised.
Susan Thomson is the Document Shepherd.
Stephen Farrell is the Area Director.
