The RADSEC protocol takes another step closer to becoming an industry standard. The protocol developed by Mike McCauley, OSC’s Chief Technologist has been submitted for IETF (Internet Engineering Task force) standardisation. The draft specification is complete and it has been presented to the IETF RADIUS Extension Working Group with a working demonstration on a device containing a RADSEC client.

Mike saw a growing need for the reliable transport and security of authentication data across the internet and developed RadSec as a new feature of Radiator RADIUS Server. Since then it has been recognised by IP carriers, global roaming partners and open campus projects as a necessary development so that they can proxy RADIUS requests over insecure networks like the internet with confidence.
