  • 1.  Certificate for Instant AP for Guest Portal on Aruba Central

    Posted Jun 21, 2021 09:38 PM
    Hi 

    I like to ask about installing the public certificate for Instant AP that will have guest captive portal hosted in Aruba Central. I understand if the GCP is hosted in ClearPass, I can use either public wildcard or a public certificate with specific CN and ensure the correct configuration on ClearPass Guest. With Aruba Central, can I have a public certificate with specific CN installed into the Instant cluster so that when Aruba Central guest redirects the user back, it does not display unsecure page?

    Thanks.

    Hi Simon168,

    Yes, you can either use a Wildcard Certificate or a named Certificate for the Instant Cluster Guest Portal. 

    You will want to configure the Clearpass Guest Portal with the name of the certificate. 
    - For WebLogin Pages, the field is labeled *Address
    - For Self-Registration Pages, the field is labeled *IP Address
    - Both page types have a label "Enter the IP address or hostname of the vendor's product here." for these fields. 

    If using a named Certificate put the full FQDN / CN name in this field. 
    If using a Wildcard Certificate, use the name - captiveportal-login.domain.name (domain.name being your own Domain name of course.).
