RADIUS Accounting

This RFC 2866 was published in 2000.


This document describes a protocol for carrying accounting information between a Network Access Server and a shared Accounting Server.

RFC 2866 introduction

Managing dispersed serial line and modem pools for large numbers of users can create the need for significant administrative support.
Since modem pools are by definition a link to the outside world, they require careful attention to security, authorization and accounting.
This can be best achieved by managing a single "database" of users, which allows for authentication (verifying user name and password) as well as configuration information detailing the type of service to deliver to the user (for example, SLIP, PPP, telnet, rlogin).
