I am very sorry that you understood my meaning incorrectly...
The project I am working on is to build a Subscription System for a 
public laboratory of Cisco in a university. I wrote a Django application 
for user to subscribe one device on a certain time. And I need to make 
it possible for FreeRadius to allow that user log in at that time he 
subscribed. I know there existed a module named "rlm_logintime" but that 
module cannot allow me to make one user be authenticated at a certain 
time. So I plan to write a authentication backend for FreeRadius to send 
the auth request to my Django application, and I will check the log in 
time in Django.
Sorry for my poor English. I hope you can understand my meaning :-)
