    When check the user information through the following path:

    ClearPass Policy Manager:

    Monitoring-Live Moonitoring-Access Tracker


    double click the user, and on the 「Summary」sheet, there are authentication info include 「Authentication Method」(which is EAP-TLS) and「Authentication Source」and also 「Authorization Source」.


    My question is if i can check if user use WPA2 in somewhere of ClearPass Policy Manager? or not from the UI, throuth CLI command?

    You cannot.  You would only be able to check that on the wireless  lan controller.

    ①End user (PC or pad)-----②wireless lan controller------③ Clearpass

    ③ can know ②, and ② can know ①

    but cannot check ①(WPA2) on ③

    That is because the WLC handles the encryption and ClearPass handles the authentication.  It is possible that with different types of encryption (WLC), there can be the same authentication (ClearPass).  Clearpass is not aware of the encryption.
