Wireless Security Configuration
Web Authentication for Mobile Users
Redirecting to the Destination URL
After successful authentication, a timer counts down until the connection to
the network is established. Then the user is redirected to the Redirect URL
specified on the WLAN – Web Authentication screen.
The feature may be configured to offer authentication:
Only to Registered users with existing RADIUS credentials,
Only to Guest users, using common guest credentials shared by multiple
Guest users, or
To both Guest and Registered users.
For authentication, you can specify both a primary RADIUS server and a
secondary RADIUS server to ensure high availability; the local RADIUS server
may also be used.
Users connecting thorough Web-Auth may associate with the AP-530's VLAN
Static WEP, or
Other Security Features
PAP authentication is supported.
Web-Auth is compatible with Identity Driven Manager (IDM) extensions,
that is, dynamic VLAN assignment, ACLs, and other IDM attributes (such
as rate limiting).
Web-Auth does not encrypt data passing between the station and the
access point. For additional security after Web Authentication, users may
employ a VPN or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection.
The web server supports SSL.
