Cisco WPA authentication without certificates
Posted on 2008-10-05
I'm trying to set up WPA (or any other type) of encryption on a Cisco access point that pulls a username and password from my windows 2003 radius server.
The default seems to use certificates, and this is not acceptable, there are too many clients with too many operating systems involved, I can't push certificates out to them, and the users are not savvy enough to install them on their own. I need the user's active directory logon credentials to authenticate them. A preshared key or wep key is also not acceptable. (they will either forget it constantly or give it to people who are not supposed to have it)
