Certificate based authentication + pin using Clearpass



We are working on design a network that allows our corporate-owned mobile devices (such as iPhone) to connect securely.


We wish to use certificate-based authentcation (EAP-TLS) for this,  but in addition to that, we also require the user to enter a pin code when connecting to the network as an additional level of user security.


I know that CPPM can provide the EAP-TLS part, but can it also provide for the PIN authentication as well, or would something else be required for this ?

Re: Certificate based authentication + pin using Clearpass

You would need a supplicant installed on your iPhone to accomplish this in the traditional sense.  If you use ClearPass with Onguard, you can both (1) distribute a certificate to the iPhone and (2) enforce a pin code for the phone itself, so that the user must enter it to unlock the phone.
