I've set up MAC authentication on an SSID intended for user-owned devices. I have not configured any security since my intention is to allow only authorized MACs to connect and use the SSID in question.
My understanding is that one needs to enable MAC authentication, choose InternalServer, and then add MAC address as username and password in the internal server database for each device I wish to allow.
I'm finding that clients can connect even though I have not added their MAC addresses to the database.
This is IAP firmware 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52_42384.
There are 4 access rules in this order:
Allow DNS to All
Allow http to All
Allow https to All
Deny Any to All

Did you put mac addresses with no delimeter in the internal database?

What is the initial role in the AAA profile? Configure a policy called "DENYALL-POL" (any any any drop) and create a role called "DENYALL-ROLE". Assign DENYALL-POL to DENYALL-ROLE. Set this role as the initial role.
Configure Default MAC Authentication role whatever role you like. A device should get the Default MAC auth role if everything else is configured right.
