Hi

What do you mean by capture it? Do you want their user details? I don't think that would be permitted and it would probably only be possible using a man-in-the-middle type attack.

When I say capture i mean like a Hot Spot software that for you to access the Guest Wifi you need to put an email address or you login with facebook. Like when you link you facebook to game to get in the community of the game etc.

For the authentication piece you would need to use something like Cisco CMX (Connected Mobile eXperiences). You could then use it to create login portals.

There is Facebook Wi-Fi that would potentially accomplish your goal

Now if you're talking about trying to build a database of people's email addresses, very different story (and potentially disturbing to the user)

Hi Muhammed,

Have a look at Aruba's Clearpass.
Clearpass allows you to set up captive portals where you can pretty much ask anything you might want to know from the user before allowing them access. Clearpass supports  'social logons' where users can use their Facebook, LinkedIn, ... credentials (together with whatever  you ask on top of that) to gain access.

For more info, check http://www.arubanetworks.com/products/security/network-access-control/clearpass-guest/ or download the Clearpass datasheets: www.arubanetworks.com/assets/ds/DS_ClearPass_PolicyManager.pdf (for rules based network access) and www.arubanetworks.com/assets/ds/DS_ClearPass_Guest.pdf (for the Guest part which allows pretty much all you might want from a captive portal.

Aruba's Clearpass is vendor agnostic and can be used with most Wifi solutions.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
