Cisco WLC 5508 & Guest WLAN authentication by providing e-mail issue


I need a solution to implement Guest WLAN - but the details of this need is quite... original.

I have 4 WLC 5508 and around 300 Cisco APs within WLAN.

What I need is to create a guest WLAN to access the internet with a possibilty for a Client to enter his e-mail address to be able to surf the web.

The clue is that the WLAN system has to prove the e-mail is valid & owned by the Client by sending login/pass credentials to that e-mail or activation url & let the Client to check that mail.

Something like welcome page redirection with 5 minutes for internet access for The Client after providing e-mail address & further authorization giving time limited internet access (for example 3 hours) to make him able surf the net would be perfect.


I found Cisco Unified Wireless Network Guest Access Services which gives Passthrough option for the Client to type a mail address, but this solution seems not validating that email address (probably except that typed text needs to be email like) & users can type some bogus email addresses.


Anyone has a clue how this could be done? The simpler solution - the better.


Thanks in advance
