Description

Hi,
Would it be possible (or impossible) to add RADIUS support to mod_auth? What kind of effort would be involved?

Yes, it is possible, but not a priority unless someone is willing to fund it, or to provide the patches to do it.

As for effort, a prototype could probably be done in a day or two, but proper support and testing against multiple RADIUS servers and integration environments would likely take one to two weeks.

Hi gstrauss,
I would like to add this feature in my products.
Can you contact me by email?
Best Regards

User dreadbit suggested using the (new) mod_authn_mysql as a workaround to access the MySQL database behind his FreeRADIUS server. See https://redmine.lighttpd.net/boards/2/topics/7433

Hi,
would it be possible to add RADIUS support? How much would it cost? We would like to have this feature in our product.
Can you contact me by email?
Best Regards

zzzupik, yes, it is possible and would be much more likely to happen with someone sponsoring the feature. I had rewritten the mod_auth framework last year with the idea in mind to make it more straightforward, or at least more isolated, to add other auth providers, including RADIUS.

I can't see your email address on this forum, so please send an email to me (see https://github.com/gstrauss for my contact info). Thanks.
(or find my email in lighttpd commit logs if you pull down the git repo)

Hi,
I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents here.
Would PAM support not be more sensible here?
That way you would not only be able to use RADIUS (by using the pam_radius_auth module)
but also any other authentication mechanism that's available via PAM.
