Certificate requests for Macs to get on wireless
Posted on 2014-02-12
I have an existing (Really simple) CA in my environment that I use to get my Windows laptops that are domain members on to our Enterprise WLAN.
It is secured using RADIUS/ 802.1x - using computer authentication ONLY.
This way, users do not have to type their username and PW to get on the wireless - they only need to have a computer that is on our domain, and a member of a security group that ties them to a GPO that handles the cert. request, as well as connecting to the network.
Everything works great - however, now we want to add a few Mac devices to this setup. I am able to add them to our AD domain, however I do not know how to get them enrolled for a cert, and since I cannot use group policy on a mac without Centrify I need to handle the cert request manually for the Macs, and setup the WLAN connection profile manually as well. This is where my knowledge on the topic ends.
So, my question is: How do I get my mac computes a computer cert. that will allow them to authenticate?
