    Default ' or 's with an acronym that ends with S

    Hello,

    Is there a special rule regarding the use of 's after an acronym?

    For example, the sentence reads "RADIUS' architecture should be able to blah blah".

    Is it RADIUS' or RADIUS's ?

    By the way RADIUS is an acronym and stands for Remote Authentication Dial In User Service, if this matters...

    Thanks

    Use your own judgment on this. My own preference is 's The only "rule" is that you be consistent.
