WiFi with WSSO using FortiAuthenticator RADIUS and Attributes

This is an example of wireless single sign-on (WSSO) with a FortiGate and FortiAuthenticator. The WiFi users are teachers and students at a school. These users each belong to a user group, either teachers (smaguire) or students (whunting). The FortiAuthenticator performs user authentication and passes the user group name to the FortiGate so that the appropriate security policy is applied.

This recipe assumes that an SSID and a FortiAP are configured on the FortiGate unit. In this configuration, you will be changing the existing SSID’s WiFi settings so authentication is provided by the RADIUS server.

For this example, the student security policy applies a more restrictive web filter.
