Developing Guest Captive Portal - how to build for Instant?

We develop a captive portal that uses the following authentication options: Facebook and registration.

To integrate with Aruba Instant we need information which information the instant Controller expected back from our captive portal / Radius server.

Can anyone help documentation or to obtain information for this integration?

Hi Christian,

 

You have two options of doing this. Radius based or authentication text based. 

Let's assume, you have a radius server in the background. The portal needs to send back the information for username and password to the IAP. I created a sample pae for this:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="de">
 <head>
 <meta charset="utf-8">
 <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
 <title>External Captive Portal with Username</title>
 </head>
 <body>
 <form method="POST" action="https://securelogin.arubanetworks.com/swarm.cgi">
 <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="authenticate" />
 User Name: <br/> <input type="text" name="user" id="user"/>
 <br/>
 Password: <br/> <input type="password" name="password" id="password"/>
 <br/>
 <input type="submit" value="Login"/>
 </form>
 </body>
</html>

After the IAP gets the username pasword it uses the radius server to authenticate the user. 

I have created a description on my personal blog, have a looke here:

Great, thanks. I'll review this but I think this is it.. we will work with a radius server because cleints must register via Facebook or Email.

Hi Christiaan,

 

If you change the certificate for the IAP, you need to reflect the new name within the action of the form. So securelogin.arubanetworks.com needs to be modified, but only if you change the certificate for the IAP.
