Device Location Tracking
2 weeks ago
We recently had a request from our Campus Police to track a laptop through campus so that they could correlate security footage to establish an exit path and perhaps an identity.
I was able to use ClearPass Access Tracker to get timestamps of RADIUS sessions and pull the Radius:Aruba:Aruba-Location-Id from each entry to build a path through campus. However, this took a fair bit of time with all the clicking.
Our goal is to be able to pass a MAC Address and time range to ClearPass and get back Time Stamps and Aruba-Location-ID values. We want to be able to generate this report in 5 minutes or less from getting a call from Campus Police.
Unfortunately, Access Tracker appears to be magic. I'm uncertain which group of API calls I could use to pull this data. Or is there a better way to gather this information from ClearPass?
I realize that I could probably export the data to Splunk or similar and build a dashboard there ... but I wanted to start with ClearPass first.
Anyone have a good idea or methodology (or CODE?!?!) which could get me the information?
