3.13.27. RequireMessageAuthenticator Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

Client clause usually checks the value of any Message-Authenticator attribute in incoming EAP or other requests, if there is any Message-Authenticator present. An incorrect authenticator causes the request to be ignored.
The optional RequireMessageAuthenticator flag causes the Client to require a correct Message-Authenticator attribute to be present in all incoming requests that support Message-Authenticator attribute. Most of the request types support Message-Authenticator. Accounting-Request is an exception.
