Require certificates for LAN WiFi access ?
Posted on 2014-01-29
Is there a site available, or can somebody provide - the steps to require SSL certificates as well as password authentication (two factor authentication ?) for WiFi access on a MS Windows Server 2008 r2 domain ? A location would like to require certificates - or perhaps some other token-based two factor authentication method - for clients to access a WiFi network that is on the Win2K8 domain LAN and also require the client to authenticate the server as well as the server authenticate each client (to help prevent rogue access point vulnerabilities, etc...). I am assuming this is part of a PKI infrastructure if certificates are used. Does one have to install MS Certificate Authority, or can SSL certs be purchased from a vendor for this ? Can any other relatively inexpensive and easy-to-install two-factor, token based authentication methods be recommended for WiFi clients that include MS Windows laptops, iPads, iPhones, etc... ? There is only a few servers and perhaps a half dozen WiFi clients at this site location. TIA ...
