UI bug? Can't use internal RADIUS server with WPA3

  • 1.  UI bug? Can't use internal RADIUS server with WPA3

    Posted May 20, 2022 01:28 PM
    I'm testing WPA3 in a lab with an IAP-315 running Instant 8.10.0. I noticed that when I select WPA2-Enterprise I have the option to use the internal RADIUS server:

    But when I choose WPA3-Enterprise, I'm only allowed to choose external RADIUS servers (InternalServer is not available as an option):

    If I set up the network with WPA2-Enterprise using the internal RADIUS server and then use the CLI to switch to "opmode wpa3-aes-ccm-128" (WPA3-Enterprise), then WPA3-Enterprise appears to work correctly with the internal RADIUS server. So it looks like the internal RADIUS server can be used with WPA3-Enterprise, it's just not possible to configure that in the UI for some reason. Is this expected, or is this a UI bug?

    I would not use internal database for WPA-Enterprise authentication as it will use PEAP-MSCHAPv2 which is deprecated and should not be used unless you have full control over your clients (supplicants).

    If you ignore that, I would indeed think this may be a UI Bug if it can be configured on CLI but not on UI. It may be on purpose because of the above, but please reach out to Aruba Support and let them find out if this is on purpose, a known, or unknown UI defect.
