[strongSwan] Ikev2 wildcards with MacOs clients

Hi !

I installed StrongSwan to allow my users (mainly MacOs X clients) to use
the native ikev2 authentication. Everything is working fine.

Now I would like to implement something like that :
https://www.strongswan.org/testing/testresults/ikev2/wildcards/index.html ;
allowing some clients to access some network and not the others.

Unfortunately I didn't see (or understand) the issue on that page (
https://wiki.strongswan.org/projects/strongswan/wiki/AppleIKEv2Profile) :

- ASN.1 Distinguished Names can't be used as identities because the client
currently sends them as identities of type FQDN.

As a result when I put rightid in my configuration it's not working because
MacOsX is only sending a fqdn (an email address in my case) and not the
Distinguished Name.

My question is how can allow (or deny) some network to some user?

I have a file that associates email address to "role" but I don't know how
to use it. Maybe a plugin?

Any ideas/links?

Thank you!
