I have turned on wpa3-enterprise with 128 bit (only two options in our controller, 128 and 256- didn't workl for 256 bits). Connected to the clearpass policies.
Yes, end devices connect with this new SSID (wpa3-enterprise) but on the devices, when I checked it says wpa2-enterprise. I tried to forget and reconnect, disabled, reenabled SSID etc..but still the same.
I have attached the screenshot as well.
Please advise if you have come up/solved this case.
Hi, as far as I remember the wizard sets Transition Mode by Default:
With that you also have an WPA2-Enterprise SSID for Clients that are not WPA3 capable.
Allowed by IEEE Standard.
Thank you very much for your reply.
Found that by default, xSec is selected. Should we select wpa3-aes-ccm-128 ?
Opmode transition is selected.
Please see the screenshot I have attached.
Yes please, deselect xSec and select wpa3-aes-ccm-128.
All WPA3 capable Clients should use WPA3 now and all WPA2 capable WPA2.
From the documentation - https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_8.10.0_Web_Help/Content/arubaos-solutions/virtual-ap/wlan-ssid-prof.htm:
Encryption and tunneling of Layer-2 traffic between the controller and wired or wireless clients, or between controllers. To use xSec encryption, you must use a RADIUS authentication server. For clients, you must install the Funk Odyssey client software.
Requires installation of the xSec license. For xSec between managed devices, you must install an xSec license in each managed device.
In our system, Aruba MM version 18.104.22.168, does allow to deselect xSec and there are no boxes to select for wpa3-aes-ccm-128.
On clicking wpa3-aes-ccm-128,it could deselect xSec but gets an error

Could be the hardware limitation ? Please let me know your experience.
ArubaOS 8.5.x support ended at the end of 2021. most customers have moved to the AOS 8.10.x LSR (Long Term Supported Release).
There have been many bug & security fixes since AOS 8.5.10. Like most here, I would recommend you consider upgrading the OS. I doubt WPA3 is supported in that ArubaOS version.
Our experience is that having an Aruba support contract is well worth the cost.------------------------------Bruce Osborne ACCP ACMPLiberty UniversityThe views expressed here are my personal views and not those of my employer------------------------------

We had to upgrade from 8.7 to 8.10 in order for the options to be available to enable WPA3 testing to commence. So if you're 8.5 I'd suggest, as bosborne, that you upgrade.
