MPSK feature with Instant 126.96.36.199
07-18-2019 08:41 PM
Aruba Instant version 188.8.131.52 now supports multiple PSKs (MPSK) on the same SSID. This means that each client connected to the PSK based SSID will have its own unique PSK that is not shared with the rest of the clients. This feature requires Aruba ClearPass 6.8.x to be the authentication server.
It should be noted that MPSK solution was designed for the headless devices like printers, TVs, etc. and not designed for laptops, tablets and mobile devices that support secure authentication using supplicants.
This 48 page guide has three workflows for MPSK
- The user registers the device on a ClearPass device-registration webpage and then receives an email with device-specific or group-specific MPSK passphrase and then connects the device to the MPSK SSID.
- Same as previous one but with the ability to pre-populate the MAC address of the device
- Same as previous but with prepopulating MAC address of the device along with Self Registration
