Authenticate AP via 802.1x certificate agains switch

I thought this was going to be easy, but is it even possible to authenticate an accesspoint against a switch via 802.1x (certificate based) ?

All our wired ports need to be 802.1x instead of mac auth.


In the provisioning settings of an AP i can only do 802.1x PEAP.

Isn't it possible to provision those AP's with a certificate?

Re: Authenticate AP via 802.1x certificate agains switch

Are you using Controller based APs or Instant APs?


For the controller based APs, you can do EAP-TLS authentication on the uplink port with either the factory TPM certificate or a certificate of your own starting ArubaOS 8.2.


Unfortunately not available on ArubaOS 6.x, nor on the recent Aruba Instant versions at the moment.

If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC (click for contact details).
