User Accounts and WeDo

User accounts. Don't use password as your password. That is all.

Ok now for the real stuffs. RADIUS. A while back we were considering having any wireless device authenticate itself with a username and password and be presented with a captive portal. That pretty much went kaput since it wasn't really necessary, and WPA-2 suits us fine. Anyway RADIUS is basically a way of authenticating users and giving them restricted access to resources. Kerberos is an authentication protocol that can be used on top of RADIUS. I mention Kerberos since it is used for authentication and everyone has heard of it even if they don't know what it means. Kerberos is also meant for a regular corporate network versus RADIUS which is used by ISPs to allow authentication of their users anywhere.

WeDo post in a bit...
