EAP TLS deployment

Hello everyone again

I have got a question regarding this... i have finally configured in a laboratory the EAP TLS with a windows server 2008 R2


Now i have got a question... i have seen that you can terminate the eap tls on the controller

What is the exactly funtion of this... i mean why would we want to do this? is there is a reason or special scenario this is needed?  i have been searching but with no luck...


All comments are welcome :)

From an Airheads Talk by Jon Green:


"EAP termination moves the TLS (crypto) processing to the controller.  The EAP session is terminated here, and the controller uses hardware crypto acceleration to make sure performance remains high."
