The user authentication system can also be considered as a ‘login validation system’ for those who want to access the wireless network for free Internet. A database of successfully logged in users is maintained through this system as per legal requirements.
Instead of handing out passwords on a piece of paper the Government recommended a WiFi User Authentication that generate SMS passwords delivered directly on the users phone number.
WiFi Authentication STEP 1: Capture MAC address and phone number.
WiFi Authentication STEP 2: Generate Password and Deliver via SMS Gateway.
WiFi Authentication STEP 3: Verify Password and allow access.
This is how it should work:
|USER FLOW||SYSTEM FLOW|
|User switches on his device WiFi and selects SSID.||STARTS A NEW SESSION FOR THE USER, INITIATES USER LOGIN PROCESS|
|User’s device browser opens and loads login form. User enters mobile number||INPUT USER ID|
|User ID is registered||CHECK USER ID, REGISTER NEW USER IDS, GENERATE AND DISPATCH PASSWORD|
|User enters password that was received via SMS||INPUT USER PASSWORD|
|User can now use Free Internet service||SUCCESS PAGE|
