between  3GPP AAA Server / Proxy  and  PDG

[R6]+

The functionality of this reference point is to enable:
  • The 3GPP AAA Server/Proxy to retrieve tunnelling attributes and WLAN UE's IP configuration parameters from/via Packet Data Gateway
  • Carrying messages for service authentication and authorization
  • Carrying authentication data for the purpose of tunnel establishment, tunnel data authentication and encryption.
For more information see TS 23.234.

between  3GPP AAA Server  and  HSS

[R6]+

The functionality of this reference point is to enable:
  • Retrieval of authentication vectors
  • Retrieval of WLAN access-related subscriber information (profile)
  • Registration of the 3GPP AAA Server of an authorised WLAN user in the HSS
  • Indication of change of subscriber profile
  • Retrieval of online charging / offline charging function addresses from HSS.
  • Retrieval of service related information
