Google authentication

Google authentication allows users to authenticate using a Google account. When the settings are configured, the user logs into the network using their Google account instead of a username and password. When the user is authenticated, the user's email address (username and domain) is passed to FortiNAC to authenticate the user with the information.

Google Cloud Messaging for Android allows users to configure push notifications for the Mobile Agent.

You must first configure Google authentication through the Google Developer's Console. See Google Developer's Console. Use the settings obtained during this process to configure Google authentication.
