Hi Marwane,

RFC 5281 (EAP-TTLSv0 [1]) only describes the encapsulation of EAP
messages in 'EAP-Message' RADIUS AVPs.  Actually, the list of allowed
AVPs is very specific (see section 13).  The 'EAP-Payload' Diameter AVP
defined in RFC 4072 (released three years earlier [2]) is not mentioned
at all.  And the registry for allowed AVPs was never extended later
either [3].  So it seems what the Cisco ePDG is doing is not RFC compliant.
