In Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) authentication, the user password is encrypted by the NAS and then sent to the RADIUS server.

A CoA request for EDSG service activation can use the attribute to carry a simple password for service authentication.


The value is a multiple of 16 and contains a maximum of 128 characters.

The password used in PAP authentication must be a string of 16 to 128 characters.

When the User-Password attribute is used to carry the service authentication password in the COA requests for activating EDSG services, the password must be a string of 1 to 128 characters in plaintext.
