Access to clearpass inner-tunnel User-Name attribute

When authenticating users via our  FreeRadius service, I've got acces to the EAP inner-tunnel User-Name attribute, so I can check that its a valid format e.g.<userid>, or block  access for individual users. With the eduroam network, the correct way to configure your client machine is to have your "realm" as the outer User-Name ( in our case) and use your real userid in the inner-tunnel. The outer User-Name is therefor only "routing" information if you are at a remote site so you don;t need to have the user component bit before the "@".


While you should be able to use the chargeable-user-identity to disconnect offending users at remote sites, sometimes its good to control access using the inner-tunnel User-Name.


Can't see any way of generating Roles or setting up enforcement policies based upon inner-tunnel User-Name attribute. Is this possible?

You were able to see the inner identity for visiting users? That doesn't seem right.


Radius:IETF:User-Name should give you the inner identity for your local users.

No not visiting users, you can't see that, for our users either on site or auths coming in from external sites
