What's new in Charon 0.5:

  • Cash prepayment support: prospective users can now pay with either cash or a credit card, at the option of the provider.
  • Funds are transferred direct into their mikolaj.cx account and can be used at any Charon hotspot.
  • Real-time balance query and account transaction history for the provider are now available from the administrative Web pages.
  • PayPal's Akamaized IP addresses are now detected and added to the firewall at every upstream reconnect, which should make Charon's credit card payments usable out of the box anywhere in the world.

Charon aims to make it easy to start reselling Internet access via WiFi access point.

Charon installs onto a Linksys WiFi access point (or similar Linux device) and manages automatic price and access negotiation with local wireless customers, charging them via the mikolaj.cx settlement/micropayment system.

It will ultimately provide secure and fraud-resistant access by utilizing cash-based settlement, reputation tracking, and PKI-based non-repudiable contracts, to protect both the end-user and the access provider.
