Authentication: Use Wireless Credentials for other UTM modules

Passing the authentication credentials from 802.1X WPAx enterprise authentication to other UTM modules would enable seamless SSO for wirelessly connected devices and would be particularly useful for authentication of mobile devices.

        Ideally this would leverage associated records on an existing AAA service on the network which is used by 802.1x. Eg: iOS device authenticates to the network using 802.1x, the Web Protection module could then cascade down 'authentication servers' (AD SSO >> RADIUS) to establish trust of the device and map it back to a specific Web Protection profile.
        This would greatly help the educational space and corporates who are introducing BYOD and are providing network access via wireless but still wish to capture WHO is using the infrastructure.
