Secure the status page

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 problem.
  • I use wifidog in a highly commercial environment 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 have implemented this in the form of three patches:

  1. restore the authentication functionality which was removed from LibHTTPD in r252
  2. add authentication configuration logic to the gateway
  3. protect the status page
