Is your intention to authenticate against the WiFi network using facebook accounts?

If you get that to work you could easily set up an API to populate User-ID on the firewall.

Exactly the idea and authenticate the network with facebook and on the high stick have the access logs of this user and possibly some rules.

how can I create this API?

your access point will need to support sending out XML API, here's the documentation:

you could also use syslog sent from the AP to a user-ID agent:

Thanks for the tips, but unfortunately my router does not do any of the functions. now I do not know what I'm going to do in my visiting network 

what is your intended scenario exactly, maybe there's a different solution


1. does your AP integrate with external authentication? (WPA-enterprise) if it does, you could connect it to an internal RADIUS server and then you should be able to get user-id trhough the RADIUS instance (either by hooking it up to ldap and have userID pick up on logon success, or let the radius forward syslog , .... )


2. if your AP does not support this intergation, you could consider setting up captive portal for your guest network and let your guest users log in via a webform, this also triggers user-ID (you'll still need internal ldap or radius ,..)

the idea and create two networks, one corporate and one visitor, the corporate network will be integrated with AD and the precise visitor thinks about how to provide quick access and without the need to create the user in the AD or Paloalto. I have two ruckus that are good and two simpler routers that are approved by facebook so the idea of ​​doing the chek-in on facebook and releasing the access. the big problem is that I need to have the access logs of the users.
