This document is designed as a reference for installing AirWave 8.0 using the CentOS software bundled with the .iso disc image.
The AirWave Management Client™ (AMC) is a Windows software utility that enables a client device, like a laptop, to act as a passive RF sensor and augment the AirWave Wireless Management Suite’s (AWMS) Rogue Access Point Intrusion Detection System (RAPIDS) module. The AirWave Management Client can improve both wireless network security and performance.
This document provides best practices for leveraging the Rogue Access Point Detection (RAPIDS) module of the AirWave Wireless Management Suite (AWMS) to secure your network. RAPIDS is designed to identify and locate wireless threats by leveraging all of the information available from the infrastructure (see Figure 1). RAPIDS takes the information it collects and feeds it through a customizable set of classification rules, isolating the threat devices based on your security concerns. RAPIDS can be configured to alert administrators via email, SNMP traps, or syslog messages after a threat is identified.

Overview of Aruba Instant Aruba Instant:
(Instant) is a system of access points per Layer 2 subnet. Aruba Instant IAPs are controlled by a single IAP that serves a dual role as a primary Virtual Controller, eliminating the need for dedicated controller hardware. This system can be deployed through a simplified setup process appropriate for smaller organizations, or for multiple geographically dispersed locations without an on-site administrator. Only the first IAP/Virtual Controller you add to the network must be configured; the subsequent IAPs will all inherit the necessary configuration information from the Virtual Controller. Aruba Instant continually monitors the network to determine the IAP that should function as the Virtual Controller at any time, and the Virtual Controller will move from IAP to IAP as necessary without impacting network performance. The Virtual Controller technology in Aruba Instant is capable of IAP auto discovery, 802.1X authentication, role-based and device-based policy enforcement, rogue detection, and Adaptive Radio Management (ARM).
ArubaOS is the operating system, software suite, and application engine that operates Aruba mobility controllers and centralizes control over the entire mobile environment. The ArubaOS wizards, command-line interface (CLI), and the ArubaOS Web UI are the primary means used to configure and deploy ArubaOS. For a complete description of ArubaOS, refer to the ArubaOS User Guide for your release.
When Mobility Access Switch (MAS) devices are added to AirWave, AirWave supports group-level of those devices, the operating system, software suite, and application engine that operates mobility and centralizes control over the entire network environment.
For a complete description of ArubaOS, refer to the ArubaOS User Guide for your specific Aruba Mobility Access Switch version.
