Suggestion for improved identD

From: Ehud Gavron (no email)

Suggestion: PPP access devices intercept identD requests
                and return the authenticated access string.

Reasoning: Modern ``stacks'' used by end-users -- especially
                those on throwaway accounts, fake any identD response.
                This makes tracking those people tougher.

Methods: 1: identD v2, new port, intercepted by access devices
                   which support it.

                2: modification to hosts requirement RFCs, making
                   access devices responsible for intercepting identD
                   requests to their PPP clients.

                3: a security RFC ``suggesting'' 1 or 2

Thoughts appreciated, as are comments, flames, blames, and anything
of some content.
