Technical Summary

      A NAS (network access server) may choose to authenticate the
      identity of a device before granting that device access to the
      network.  The IEEE 802.1X protocol is an example of a mechanism
      for providing authenticated layer 2 network access.  A network
      element using RADIUS as an authentication authority will receive
      attributes from a RADIUS server that may be used by a DHCP server
      in the selection of configuration parameters to be delivered to
      sub-option enables a network element to pass along attributes for
      the user of a device received during RADIUS authentication to a
      DHCP server.
