    Hello everyone again

    I have got a question regarding this... i have finally configured in a laboratory the EAP TLS with a windows server 2008 R2


    Now i have got a question... i have seen that you can terminate the eap tls on the controller

    What is the exactly funtion of this... i mean why would we want to do this? is there is a reason or special scenario this is needed?  i have been searching but with no luck...


    All comments are welcome :)

    From an Airheads Talk by Jon Green:


    "EAP termination moves the TLS (crypto) processing to the controller.  The EAP session is terminated here, and the controller uses hardware crypto acceleration to make sure performance remains high."


    Please see the Advanced WLAN Security Presentation from Airheads Las Vegas here:
