Forgive me. I have the same issue as mentioned in the June 4, 2017 archived
thread. It seems to me the issue is explained but not how to fix it.

Question: Which file must be edited and in which manner to eliminate this
warning about user privacy being compromised due to the same outer and
inner identities?

Details: 3.0.15 FreeRADIUS build, in a lab environment. My only edits are
to add a user, add a client, and make fresh certificates. The NAS is an
Aruba 7005 wireless controller. Authentication succeeds if I configure the
client not to validate the certificate, but I see this in the freeradius -X
