The "NetID" (account login identifier) for inter-institutional authentication.
This can be thought of as the account login scoped to the Identity Provider. For everyone in the directory, it is 'tamuEduPersonNetID@tamu.edu'.
This value is also the Kerberos principal for the account holder.
This is a human-friendly identifier selected by the account holder. NetIDs are revokable (account holders are allowed to switch to a different NetID) and reassignable (6 months after the NetID is released by an account holder, it may be claimed by a different account holder).
Due to these characteristics, a Service Provider wishing to link a Texas A&M NetID account holder to an internal account should use a persistent identifier such as eduPersonUniqueId or eduPersonTargetedID instead of eduPersonPrincipalName.
The values consist of a left and right component separated by an "@" sign. The left component is the entry's tamuEduPersonNetID value. The right component identifies the domain or scope. For all entries in the Texas A&M NetID Identity Management System this is "tamu.edu".
