Support for database access control?
Wed Dec 28 10:16:19 PST 2011
Hi, I have a desire to allow per user authentication, but my application
is on a small embedded appliance (which is mainly disconnected from the
internet) and I want to keep dependencies minimal (freeradius seems like
a large extra dependency?). The user accounts are stored in a separate
database with passwords in an iterated blowfish format (bcrypt)
Any suggestions on the simplest way to interface this with hostapd?
Seems like I could either look to some general hook to hostapd to call
some external app to do the auth check, or I could look at a very
lightweight custom radius server to interface to my DB (any
suggestions? I have perl on this box)
