Welcome to the ClearPass Policy Manager User Guide.
The ClearPass Policy Manager User Guide provides a general overview of ClearPass Policy Manager features, as well as detailed descriptions of the configuration settings used to manage and monitor your Policy Manager deployment.
The intended audience for the ClearPass Policy Manager User Guideincludes customers, partners, and Aruba
Please note that this document is not a training guide, and it is assumed that the reader has at minimum
foundational training in ClearPass Essentials and, if possible, Aruba Certified Professional (ACCP) certification.
The user of this guide should have a working knowledge of the following:
- AAA technologies (Radius, TACACS, 802.1X, MAC authentication, and Web authentication)
- Layer-2 and Layer-3 networking
- User Identity stores, such as Active Directory
- Providing information about network device configurations and capabilities is outside the scope of this guide. For information on these topics, refer to the documentation provided by the vendor of your network equipment.
- Getting Started
- If you are new to ClearPass Policy Manager, refer to the following sections:

EAP-TLS and EAP-PEAP are two of the most highly used authentication mechanisms on enterprise WLAN.
This presentation gives a detailed step by step procedure for setting up a Controller and CPPM for EAP-TLS & EAP-PEAP – with and without EAP termination on controller.
Importantly, it covers setting up the PKI infrastructure required for these authentication mechanisms. It also looks in to detail troubleshooting tools and commands available in both AOS & CPPM.

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.

In the recent years, Wi-Fi has become a critical part of enterprise and campus networks. With the introduction of 802.11ac, which provides gigabit speed, many companies are moving towards all wireless offices. Moving to an all wireless office is cost-effective and provides a flexible work environment to employees, which enables them to work from anywhere. In an all wireless enterprise or campus network, where users are not restricted to working from their desks, roaming becomes an essential part of a wireless network design, people move to various parts of a building while on a Lync call using their smart phone and/or uploading/downloading files from the shared server.
To support this functionality, seamless roaming between access points is provided to ensure best quality of service and user experience. This document provides best practices and guidelines to optimize RF and improve roaming in the Aruba WLAN architecture that supports thousands of mobile devices such as laptops, smart phone, tablets, hand-held scanning terminals, and voice badges. The following areas are significantly impacted when a wireless network supports many roaming devices:
- AP Selection and Placement Recommendation
- RF Consideration
- Roaming Optimization
- Device Configuration
This guide discusses the design principles and configuration guidelines in each of the above areas.
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.
The Indoor 802.11n Site Survey and Planning guide covers the design and installation of an Aruba WLAN. It includes information on choosing the right AP, performing a virtual survey, and performing a physical survey. The guide also covers using the Aruba Instant AP for physical site surveys.
