Slide 1/7 03/17/03 56th IETF San Francisco CA, March 16-21, 2003 “EAP support in smartcards” My name is Pascal Urien, ENST Draft-urien-EAP-smartcard-01.txt
Slide 2/7 03/17/03 Draft Objectives 1/2 Standardization initiative for EAP support in smartcard. Agreement between major smartcard manufacturers. Under discussion in the wlan smartcard consortium (www.wlansmartcard.org) supported by nineteen founding members. Definition of an “universal” ISO 7816 interface, e.g. supporting most of EAP authentication protocols. Height services are defined in this version. Three logical interfaces. Network interface. Smartcard directly processes EAP messages (requests, notifications). EAP profiles definition. A set of rules (if needed) for supporting a particular authentication protocol (messages maximum size, …). Operating system interface. Identity management. Multiple triplets (EAP-ID, EAP-Type, cryptographic keys) are stored in the smartcard; a triplet is required by each network. User profile, typically an LDAP record stored in the smartcard (under discussion). Management interface. Identities & profiles download and update. Management could be done via dedicated EAP protocols (under discussion).
Slide 3/7 03/17/03 Draft Objectives 2/2. EAP / RADIUS EAP / LAN EAP / 7816 RADIUS802.1xISO 7816 Secure Authentication. User authentication rather than computer authentication One smartcard for several networks. Interoperability between EAP smartcards.

Slide 4/7 03/17/03 Smartcard Facilities. Tamper resistant device, highly tested (credit card, GSM card, PKI card…) Low cost. Multiple form factors (ISO 7816 – credit card format, SIM GSM 11.11, USB…). Sufficient cryptographic performances (RSA 2048 bits calculation in 500 ms). Can be issued for millions users (half a billion – 600 millions of smartcard produced in 2001). Can compute multiple EAP protocols. Can be used in various networks (memory size around 128 kb, one Mb with the FLASH technology)
