RFC 2865 defines RADIUS attribute 26 as being available for vendors to extend RADIUS with their own vendor-specific attributes. The attribute makes use of the Private Enterprise Number for the vendor.
The University has its own Private Enterprise Number, and hence can make use of the Vendor-Specific Attribute for its own purposes.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Radius servers and clients load a dictionary that provides a definition for the attribute, its type, and a user-friendly name. The following line represents an example line from such a dictionary, defining one particular a University of Strathclyde VSA:
