Meraki Wi-Fi

Learn how to integrate Meraki Wi-Fi with idemeum Passwordless MFA for passwordless login.

Meraki Wi-Fi

Capabilities overview

We can integrate Meraki 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 Meraki Wi-Fi deployment. You can learn more about idemeum Cloud Radius service here.

Set up idemeum integration

Create a Meraki Wi-Fi application

  • Navigate to idemeum admin portal
  • Access Applications and then search for Meraki WiFi Radius application
  • Click Add app
  • 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 Meraki WiFi Radius app in the My applications tab to copy the Shared secret. You will later use it in the Meraki configuration. This secret allows your Meraki wireless gateway to authenticate using idemeum Cloud Radius infrastructure.
  • Click Save to save the Meraki WiFi Radius application

Entitle Meraki 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 Meraki integration

  • Navigate to the Meraki admin dashboard
  • Choose Wireless -> Access control
  • For SSID choose the one that you want to integrate with idemeum Cloud Radius
  • Scroll down to Security and choose Enterprise with my Radius server
  • For WPA choose WPA2 only
  • For Splash Page choose None
  • Scroll down to Radius servers and click Add server
Now you will need to use idemeum Cloud Radius IP address that you can check here.

idemeum Cloud Radius IP addresses
  • Enter the IP address of the idemeum Radius server into Host field
  • Port is 1812
  • Enter Secret that generated when configuring the Meraki application in idemeum. (Click Edit of Meraki WiFi Radius app in the My applications tab to copy the Shared secret)
  • Click Save to save configuration

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.
