Extending httpContext or other alternative on storing unique workstation ID

Hi all,

According to requirements we need to create audit trail of what workstation was used to make certain data changes.

This application will be deployed to a number of mobile stations (Tablet PCs).

The goal is to find a place to store Workstation ID during initial install/configuration and make that ID available to code later?

My initial thought was to store a custom configuration key in web.config and then extend httpContext.User to return current WorkstationID.
I was also contemplating creating a separate Service to deal with that...

Has someone solved similar issue or have a more appropriate solution/suggestion?

Thank you
