RADIUS to Diameter Translation

 

SBR Carrier supports RADIUS to Diameter translation to convert RADIUS authentication or authorization requests to Diameter authentication or authorization requests.

Figure 129 illustrates the RADIUS to Diameter translation function.

Note

In the RADIUS to Diameter translation scenario, the default length of the reauthentication identity is set to 72 bytes and the length of the pseudonym identity is hard-coded to 33 bytes. You can use the Temp_Identity_Length parameter in the radius_listener.xml file (available in the /opt/JNPRsbr/radius/system path) to modify the length of the reauthentication identity to a value ranging from 63 through 253 bytes. But, we recommend that you not modify the parameter names or values in the radius_listener.xml file. We also recommend that you use the default length for the reauthentication identity to support NADs that handle only the minimum length for the User-Name attribute.

SBR Carrier does not support generating CoA/DM messages when a request is sent for RADIUS to Diameter conversion.
