Hello,

EAP is used in computer security and it is a
"protocol" or a standard for authenticating a
user (in other words making sure the user
is who he says he is), much like you "authenticate"
when you log in to windows. The difference
between EAP (which stands for Extensible
Authentication Protocol by the way) and any
other protocol is that EAP is meant to work
for a lot of things and is not meant to
be proprietary, or owned by one company.

Hope this clears things up,

Thanks,

Fadi Ramada,
