Authenticating Chromebook Users

Note: This topic applies to the Edinburgh Release.

The Smoothwall System’s Chromebook authentication feature allows internal Chromebook users to authenticate themselves using their Google credentials, whilst enforcing organizational web filtering policies wherever they are located.

The Smoothwall System must be assigned a Client ID and Client Secret, provided through the Google developer console (see Creating a Google Client ID and Client Secret (Web Application)). This allows the Smoothwall System, and the Connect for Chromebooks to send authorization requests to Google OpenAuth servers.

Note: Google Chromebooks allow multiple users to be signed into a single Chromebook device at any one time. For the Smoothwall System’s Google App integration to work, this feature needs to be disabled. For a detailed description of how to do this, refer to the Google Admin console, http://admin.google.com.
