We are pleased to announce that Radiator now supports authentication with 3M
Standard Interchange Protocol (SIP) 2.0
SIP (not to be confused with VOIP Session Initiation Protocol) is a protocol
used in many book libraries to communicate between library self service
terminals and a central Automatic Circulation System (ACS). It is uauly used
to check books in and out, extend loads etc.
The new AuthBy SIP2 module allows Radiator to authenticate RADIUS, DIameter
and TACACS requests against an ACS using the library patron name and password.
Protocols such as RADIUS-PAP, EAP-GTK, PEAP-GTK, TTLS-PAP etc can be supported
This will make it practical and easy to implement WiFi and Captive Portal
systems in libraries for the use of library patrons.
Support for AuthBy SIP2, along with sample configurations and testing
guidelines are available in the latest Radiator patch set for Radiator 4.10.
