This advisory is relevant to all eduroam(UK) Home (IdP) and Visited (SP) service organisations. It describes the measure that was  implemented by eduroam(UK) in Novermber 2018 to ensure that the Operator-Name attribute is included in all authentication requests that are received by Home organisations - thereby making troubleshooting and security response investigations easier. The measure involves injecting the O-N into authentication requests sent to the NRPS from Visited member sites where O-N is not already inserted by the Visited site. The link below takes you to the original advisory. No action is required.
