I am not sure Abishek and Ravi provided correct answers however Mooncat did (in my opinion).
You can configure WLANs to authenticate through various different methods including:
Local (Based on WLC)
Additionally, you can configure different ways to auth those users. For example I have a couple of networks setup in different ways:
1. 802.1x Security linked to a RADIUS server with the WLC configured as a Radius Client and shared secrets setup etc. This authenticates my AD users through NPS (Network Policy Server) installed on a Windows 2008 server.
2. Web authentication pass through linked to both local (on WLC) and RADIUS. In this setup there are local users I've setup on my WLC who can log in to the guest portal or alternatively any AD user can also log in as I have setup RADIUS as my secondary method of authentication for that WLAN.
3. Web authentication pass through linked to an LDAP server -> I tried this and actually found it tricky to implement for what I wanted it for. I ended up going for the RADIUS installation instead as it was more flexible but it does work as well!
