Eduroam visited ORPS and home server ORPS should support CUI. Where the NAS at the visited site lacks support for CUI, and the NAS supports setting values for attributes associated with a session, a globally and temporarily unique identifier should be set (via Access-Accept/COA/SNMP) and then associated with the CUI provided by the home server.

Some NAS include the Acct-Session-ID in Access-Requests, in which case the Acct-Session-ID can be associated with the CUI instead.

For support calls the ID on the NAS can be mapped to the CUI, which can in turn be provided to the home institution.
