The gateway status page is readable for everyone at the moment. This has
several downsides for me:
- it includes all information needed to disconnect a user using the
manual disconnect feature I'm implementing. That makes it a security
- I use wifidog in a highly commercial environment (airport lounges at
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol) and do not want everyone to be able to see
how many people are connecting and which IPs/MACs they have. That
has both security issues (MAC addresses reveal a lot about the type of
machine someone uses for example) and bussiness reasons (the usage
figures are confidential).
I intend to add optional HTTP authentication to the status page.
LibHTTPD provides that option so it should be a simple change.
