Subject [users@httpd] Detecting and limiting access to a mobile device using a 3G network
Date Tue, 26 Jul 2011 23:36:52 GMT

I am looking for ways of detecting a specific mobile device (example: my
iPhone and not my friends) accessing a resource on my publicly accessible
Apache web server so that I can restrict access to certain devices only.

Just like there are ways of detecting the user agent and IP address of the
device where the request originates from and restricting access accordingly,
is there a way to do something similar for an iPhone for example, connected
to 3G network (not wifi)?

Any pointers towards this would be highly appreciated.
