     184Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) is a networking protocol that provides centralized Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) management for computers to connect and use a network service. 
     185Because of the broad support and the ubiquitous nature of the RADIUS protocol it is often used by ISPs and enterprises to manage access to the Internet or internal networks, wireless networks, and integrated e-mail services. 
     186RADIUS is a client/server protocol that runs in the application layer, using UDP as transport.RADIUS serves three functions: 
     187to authenticate users or devices before granting them access to a network, 
     188to authorize those users or devices for certain network services and 
     189to account for usage of those services.
