Aruba Controller: MAC Auth and Captive Portal (together)



just a quick question as I don't have the oportunity to test this right now.

Is it possible to have a SSID with MAC Auth as first and CaptivePortal as a second authentification (some kind of 2-factor auth)?


A customer wants to protect a SSID with Captive Portal and MAC Auth because only a few devices should be able to join the SSID.

Only known MAC adresses should see the Captive Portal. Unknown MAC adresses shall be blocked.


Clearpass is no option.

Yes. Use the internal database to store your MAC address and set their role
to be the captive portal registration role.
