This memo defines a new DHCP Relay Suboption for passing an arbitrary number of bytes defining what will be called the 'Subscriber ID'. This value is simply defined as an array of bytes and can be interpreted in any form by the DHCP server. Its intended purpose is to give additional information which the DHCP server can use in address allocation.
