Access Point POP authentication

Here everyone,

I would like to know if is possible to authenticate Access Point users by using their GMAIL accounts?.

I guess Google could provide some kind of Radius authentication using POP3 service  or maybe, some third party Radius server could support POP3 authentication through  Gmail accounts.

Thanks a lot in advance

Re: Access Point POP authentication

POP3 is not auth protocol, right? There would be an auth mechanism that pop3 uses. If there is a radius server can be configured to authenticate to google account then it will be possible, but i am not aware about any radius server that does that.

Access Point POP authentication

Did you ever figure this out?  We use google apps for education email account for students and would like to authenticate wireless users though google apps.  Any ideas?

I don't think that is possible.. you would have to know the users google account.  Anyway's... wireless is separate and if the students are on the domain, just use PEAP or machine authentication and allow the Chrome books to logon to the network first.
