WBA published the Captive Network Portal Standards white paper which analyses captive portal behaviour across operating systems, use cases for NGH/Passpoint® and identifies a set of recommendations for future features to standardize the way Captive Portals are utilized.

The Onboarding Evolution stage focuses on improving the user experience of “captivation” and how end-users engage with captive portals in the Passpoint® era; provides recommendations on technical and business challenges; and outlines the role of captive portals for interconnecting networks, as well, in a Federated ecosystem.
