I’ve decided to try my hand at creating a Virtual Network service.
The idea is to have a simple web interface where I can add/remove/edit user accounts, Generate Certificates for endpoints and check users usage.
RADIUS is a fantastic AAA (Accounting Authentication And Authorization) protocol, which is used for almost everything ISP related (dial-up, dsl, wimax, wifi hotspots), so it seems only fitting that I use it for this application. It also means I can integrate other things into it, without serious modification (since its a standard). I may even start using it for building my own Hotspot controller for Mikrotik RouterOS based hotspots.
