The idea being that various types of iPhones may end up with different fingerprints but still be iPhones .. and the controller could be given an update which would then have all the new fingerprints

Just a quick note that Aruba has posted an application note on the public website for DHCP and device fingerprinting:
12-20-2011 03:44 AM
and some bad news for those thinking to implement dhcp fingerprinting on a captive portal SSID:
BUG-ID: 51691, 56746
DHCP Fingerprinting & Captive Portal cannot be used together.
And from what I was told the fix for this will only be in release 6.2.x.x which is apparantly several months out.

Can anyone else confirm for me that the Mac OS X Mountain Lion fingerprint has changed from what Lion was?
This is what I'm getting in the network log for an iMac running OS X 10.8.1:
Previous versions of OS X was very similar, but with an extra "2f" on the end:
I guess if I wanted to cover all OS X versions with a rule - I could use the "starts-with" option instead of "equals".
Updated: It looks like the change was actually made with OSX 10.7. I imaged the same Macbook and the fingerprint changed from 10.6 -> 10.7, but stays the same for 10.8.

Any word on whether we are able to fine-tune DHCP fingerprinting with signatures that can tell the difference between an iPhone, iPod, and AppleTV.
I wonder - why is it that the controller(s) can see the Device Type differences between AppleTV, iPhone, iPod, iPad, etc... but our DHCP fingerprints cannot?
Thank you --

I suppose theres an internal process that happens similar to ClearPass. Possibly by pairing MAC address ranges with DHCP Option fingerprints. I'm not sure, but that would be my guess. I would also assume that since this process is completely internal, and it seems to be similar to ClearPass - it is not something we can utilize with only controllers.
I'm not an Aruba expert - but thats my guess.
