To find RADIUS shared secret for a Network device in Clearpass


We can export the NAD Client with password protection and the exported XML file shows the RADIUS Shared secret


Please Navigate to Configuration » Network » Devices  » Select the Device we need to find the shared secret and click Export


Export it to a file by typing a password. The exported file is a zip file. We need to extract the file with the password that we created while exporting the NAD client.

Then open the XML with an editor and we will be able to see the RADIUS Shared Secret.
