Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The [aaa] tag is was used to mean two separate things:

For the former, there is already a tag available, but for the latter there is none, and [authentication-authorization-accounting] is way over the 25 character length limit.

Any suggestions to a short enough tag name? Since I am not an expert of the field, I would rather not make suggestions myself.

Btw the existing posts which used to have the tag [aaa] in the security protocol sense are:


I retagged the above posts with aaa-security-protocol. I also searched through posts tagged [authentication] and [authorization], to find any related to AAA, but there seems to be none.

To avoid future confusion, please blacklist the [aaa] tag.
