How is the private key communicated to a client during the Onboarding process?

Does anyone know how the private key gets communicated to the client during the Onboarding process with ClearPass? And is the private key communicated in an encrypted or unencrypted format?

It depends on the Key Type setting within the configuration profile. The settings and how the key is transferred are detailed in the Clearpass Guest User Guide as below:

Thanks, David. So if we choose one of the 'created by cerver' options, is the private key embedded within the newly created client OnBoard certificate or is it transferred  via a TLS tunnel or a different method altogether?

My understanding is that it is provisioned to the client by the Onboarding process over the HTTPS connection used for onboarding. I am happy to be corrected here if that is not the case.

I'm inclined to agree with you. Thanks again!
