Cisco Wireless Controller 802.1x authentication

Hello,

We are looking at options for authenticating multiple platforms (Win, MAC, iOS, Android) on our Wireless network in the most seemless/transparent way.  

Our network consists of:

5508 Wireless controllers
Cisco PRIME
Cisco ACS for RADIUS.

Ideally we would like to be able to connect the wireless network and have a SSO with our AD credentials be used.  If its a mobile device, than a username/password prompt be offered that is tied into AD.  Hopefull we won't have to install a certificate on every machine but if its possible, it'll be good to know.

Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

You'll need to use PEAP-MSChapV2 to authenticate mobile devices if you want to tie it in to AD.  This can be done without device certificates, but it does mean the AD login can be used on ANY device in the world that supports PEAP.

If you've not already purchased ACS I'd strongly suggest going with ISE instead.  That will give you a lot more granularity and control in terms of mobile authentication and network management.

I would deploy certificates to domain-joined devices though.  It's easy to do this with autoenrolment via GPO and will ensure a strong level of security if you decide to offer domain machines more network access than mobile devices, for example.
