Integrate Okta with Clearpass for RADIUS and TACACS MFA

  • 1.  Integrate Okta with Clearpass for RADIUS and TACACS MFA

    Posted Dec 10, 2021 10:20 AM

    Hi

    I am trying to integrate Okta Token Server with the CPPM for the RADIUS and TACACS requests for MFA. It is giving me some issues as the MFA works randomly for the login requests. The user will receive the push from Okta no matter what. But the CPPM logs say Error Code: "Internal error in performing authentication".

    The alerts section say "Connection closed by remote end". I tried to look at the switch logs and it is marking the user account as invalid. I tried another switch and it is not even able to identify the user account and say its an unknown user.

    Could anyone guide me here. Also if there is a guide on how to integrate okta with clearpass, can I get that if anyone knows about it.

    Thanks

    Certainly had it working with Duo for logging into a switch on  ArubaOS and ComWare switches. Is that what what you want to do?

    Didn't work so well for RSA topkens biut dodnt inverstigate that too far

    I am trying to do something similar but instead of using Duo, I am trying to use Okta MFA with Aruba OS switches.

    Please try to work with Aruba Support, they may have a workaround. I did find somewhere internal that for Okta in this admin login, the switch needs to support challenge-response for RADIUS and Admin access. It may be that the Aruba OS switches don't support that, but that's also something that TAC can verify.

    It worked now. Did a wireshark with TAC and found that the for the first request of the auth, clearpass okta exchange was slow which made the switch to timeout the session and then reset the session. But when we attempt the second time it works as clearpass okta exchange wasnt slow. So we ended up in increasing the RADIUS-server timeout setting on the switch and it is now working fine.
