Name of Project

NetworkManager Web Authentication


NetworkManager knows how to connect to many different types of networks, both wired and wireless, and can auto-authenticate to WEP and WPA networks. However, it can't auto-authenticate to networks that require a web-based login, which includes many wired and wireless networks such as SeneNET and AirYork.

Modify NetworkManager so that it talks (though dbus) to a Firefox extension for automatic login to a web-authenticated network.
