Introduction to One-AAA – What is AAA ?  Authentication  Authorization  Accounting : check that the user has access to a network (via credentials) : grant specific type of services to a user (based on authentication) : track consumption of network resources by users • RADIUS is current standard protocol for AAA • Diameter: upcoming standard protocol for AAA – – – – Better transport Better proxying Better session control Better security 14 Mobile Networks .
