Apple laptop 802.1X wireless/wired authentication

    Posted Dec 01, 2021 12:40 PM

    We are working on getting some of our Apple laptops to connect to our network via either wired or wireless 802.1X.  We can get .mobileconfig profiles setup on the device and we can see that it will pull a certificate from our internal CA.  However when we attempt to authenticate to our wireless, we are presented with a popup on the laptop to choose an authentication method and a certificate.  Is their any guide on the aruba side on working with Apple devices?

    As this is an apple configuration setting, aruba does not have a guide on how you should manage your devices. Apple has information on manageing your apple computers with the mobile config here:

    Aruba ClearPass is able to push network configurations with auth settings, certificates, etc.. via the OnBoard feature (licenced). ClearPass is not an MDM however, and is mostly used to generate and install certificates on unmanaged devices for TLS auth.
