Hi Totti,

> There is also ID Type in the identification payload.

Unfortunately, EAP-Identities are not transmitted in such payloads.
They are basically arbitrary binary blobs that strongSwan tries to parse
based on some heuristics to actually match them against other identities
(e.g. in certificates or the configuration, which all have a type
associated that must match).
