Device Authorization for use with Husky OnNet  Departmental Slice Proposed TBD TBD By adding device authorization, a department may use two authentications for access to their Husky OnNet Slice service: 1) UW NetID via UW Groups and 2) device MAC.

Update 6/15/17: initial review finds that the device MAC info is not provided to the central f5 device precluding an authorization step facilitated by the central device.
