The Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) is a frame- work for transporting authentication credentials. EAP o�ers simpler interoperability and compatibility across authentication methods. In this paper, we have modeled the ExtensibleAuthentication Protocol is modeled as a �nite state machine.Then the model is checked for conformance with its specications to detect possible aws. The various entities in our model are Authenticator, EAP Server, User and UserDatabase. The messages exchanged between various entities are modeled as transitions. The model is represented in PROMELA. Then the model is veri�ed using SPIN model checker. This enables us to check working of protocol before implementation.
