[Kea-users] Android StrongSwan identifier

We are using StrongSwan on Android to connect to a StrongSwan VPN server. We use Kea with a MySQL backend to store the DHCP host reservations (so clients consistently get the same IP address). On iOS we're able to send a unique ID to Kea as an option (12) in the DHCPDISCOVER message so it can consistently assign the same IP. However, for Android clients they are missing this option in the discover message so Kea cannot find a host reservation and picks the next available IP from the pool. Does anyone have any suggestions for how we can pass the same/similar unique ID from Android/StrongSwan to that Kea will be able to identify?

Some relevant logs:
Android:
