RE: kickstart and SSPP
Thanks for the comments.
Ok, so it seems that there is some flexibility as far as methods
of representing NAS (its ID). but no flexibility in secret lookup
(has to be done based on IP address and nothing else).

The home radius server may store the NAS ID and/or the NAS IP as well as
Remember that RADIUS is stateless so what is stored by RADIUS is highly
dependant on the deployment or the use of the AAA.
For example, if the home network wanted to issue a Disconnect Message or a
Change of Authorization message (see RFC 3576) then it would need the NAS
identity and user session identities inorder to issue these messages.
Hope this helps.
