I guess as long as the policy is to blithely ignore unknown attributes.
That might be an acceptable policy for a proxy, under certain
circumstances. Recall that RADIUS clients MAY handle an unknown
attribute by treating the packet as if it were an Access-Reject.
There is almost always a policy decision to be made between the
interests of transparent plug and play and the interests of strict
So are you saying that it's OK to treat a sub-class of RADIUS standard
attributes as if they were VSAs, in that only RADIUS product from
certain vendors who choose to support this functionality need to be able
to parse the attributes? I think an attribute is either of limited
scope of application (a VSA), or it is of general applicability and all
RADIUS implementations SHOULD understand it.
