User account group as Alias

Hi. Is it possible to use a user account group as an Alias?
I'm using a Captive Portal and there are currently 2 classes of users: "Members (valid account users)" and "Guests (voucher users)"
Member advantage - permanent access
Guest advantage - less restrictions
Given that "members" are employees, I wan't to limit their browsing freedom via firewall.
Is there a way to group them as an alias BY USER ACCOUNT, not by their addresses so they can switch devices and still get the same restrictions?
I know you can group user accounts but it looks like I can only use it for setting their privileges, not as aliases for firewall rules. Thanks.

In short, you can't apply firewall restrictions to user accounts within the firewall rules themselves. Your best bet would be to install Squid/Squidguard/Dansguardian and set your user-based restrictions that way. If you're using a Windows environment, it's possible to bind Squid to Active Directory and apply filters according to Windows-defined access groups. Google is your friend of course, but here's a link which may get you started.
