Once upon a time there was the CAT working group whose name was an abbreviation for "Common Authentication Technology". It produced IETF specifications for GSS-API.

It was succeeded by the kitten working group, which has been working on the next-generation GSS-API specifications.

There is now a proposal for a MOGGIES working group, which will work on Mechanisms Of Generating Generically Interoperable & Effective Security.

I'm surprised they haven't spun off a group for Mechanisms for Interoperable Authentication Over Wireless.

Sadly that lies in the territory of the IEEE and I bet they had a lot less felixity naming the committee that developed 802.1x...
