Aruba Wi-Fi

Aruba Wi-Fi

Capabilities overview

We can integrate Aruba Wi-Fi with idemeum Cloud Radius infrastructure. When users connect to company Wi-Fi, they can login with Passwordless MFA instead of typing username and password.

In this integration guide, we will be setting up idemeum Cloud Radius and connecting it with Aruba Wi-Fi deployment. You can learn more about idemeum Cloud Radius service here.

Set up idemeum integration

Create Aruba Wi-Fi application

  • Navigate to idemeum admin portal
  • Access Applications and then search for Aruba WiFi Radius application
  • Click Add app
  • Click Save to save the Aruba WiFi Radius application
  • Enter the following information:
    • Client IP - this is the IP address from which Radius requests will be originating. Typically this is the external IP address of your WAN interface.
    • Advance Options - only applicable when you have multiple Radius applications configured for the same network. The public IP address for these Radius applications will be the same. Hence to differentiate between requests, you need to specify NAS IP addresses for each client.
The shared secret is generated post saving the application. Click Edit of Aruba WiFi Radius app in the My applications tab to copy the Shared secret. You will later use it in the Aruba configuration. This secret allows your Aruba wireless gateway to authenticate using idemeum Cloud Radius infrastructure.

Entitle Aruba Wi-Fi application

Before users can access applications you need to make sure you entitle applications to them. In idemeum admin portal navigate to the Entitlements section to assign applications to your employees.

Set up Aruba integration

Complete the Aruba integration setup using the below mandatory details

  • For WPA choose WPA2 only
  • Enter the IP address of the idemeum Radius server into Host/IP field
Now you will need to use idemeum Cloud Radius IP address that you can check here.

idemeum Cloud Radius IP addresses
  • For Port use 1812
  • Use shared Secret that generated when configuring the Aruba application in idemeum. (Click Edit of Aruba WiFi Radius app in the My applications tab to copy the Shared secret)

Passcode login (EAP PEAP)

This option doesn't involve the creation/import of any profile nor requires importing a client certificate. As PEAP establishes an outer TLS tunnel via MSCHAPv2 (includes username and password), end-users need to key in the 3-letter passcode in the password field shared by the admin.

Default passcode that is used - mfa

Users will able to connect in the following way:

  1. Connect to the company Wi-Fi network
  2. If idemeum Radius server certificate is not imported on a client device, there will be a pop-up to accept the certificate.
  3. The user will be prompted for a username and password. The user will type the email address and mfa passcode.
  4. The user will receive an idemeum push notification to a mobile device.
  5. Once approved with biometrics user will be connected to the network.
