Background and strategic fit

Discussion held in WTP call on 25/4/2018:

- Several vendors and operators expressed interest in having such use case in the 5th PoC (no formal decision made)

- Vendors do neither individual no operator specific pre-configurations before shipping the devices

- There is a unique serial number imprinted on every device

- Identification of the hardware could also be made by MAC address of the management port

- Automated Commissioning must be done via management port, because user plane ports are not available in initial state

- Exchanging public keys instead of username/password would be preferred

- The device will accept valid certificates of every owner in the initial state

- The device needs to be configured to accept only certificates of the operator, who is owning it
