A persistent, opaque identifier for the account holder given to a Service Provider.
The identifier sent by the Texas A&M Identity Provider is unique for an account
holder/Service Provider pair.
This identifier facilitates long-term user sessions, but cannot be used to identify the account holder.
Because each Service Provider receives a different identifier, this attribute preserves the account holder's privacy and inhibits the ability of multiple unrelated services from correlating user activity by comparing eduPersonTargetedID values.
