How does my NPS certificate work?
Posted on 2015-02-19
I've had to pick up a NPS RADIUS configuration since a colleague left.
It's all configured but I'm struggling to understand how it's strung together - mainly for the certificate side of things.
There is a "wireless connection" certificate created which apparently is the certificate needed in order to authenticate to the wireless network. This is set to auto enroll.
The issue is, looking at the config on the NPS server, I cannot see anywhere where it actually states that this is the certificate that should be used. Under the connection policy, I can see it requires authentication via a certificate. I assumed it would be a case of telling the policy which cert to use but all I can see is the CA server listed under the settings.
It's the first time I've dealt with certs which is why I'm struggling really.
I have raised another question about an issue I get with being auto enrolled but that's another topic.
How on earth does the policy know which certificate I should have in order to allow me to connect?
Any help/advice would be welcome.
