defining them as managed entities. During this time, RADIUS defining them as managed entities. During this time, RADIUS
implementations have named the data types, and have used them in implementations have named the data types, and have used them in

better follow established practice. We do this by naming the data better follow established practice. We do this by naming the data
types defined in RFC 6158, which have been used since at least RFC types defined in RFC 6158, which have been used since at least RFC
2865. We provide an IANA registry for the data types, and update the 2865. We provide an IANA registry for the data types, and update the
RADIUS Attribute Type registry to include a "Data Type" field for RADIUS Attribute Type registry to include a "Data Type" field for
each attribute. Finally, we recommend that authors of RADIUS each attribute. Finally, we recommend that authors of RADIUS
