Wireless network certificate validating identity

28 Jun

The following sections provide links to documentation that shows you how to deploy these technologies.

This guide is designed for network and system administrators who have followed the instructions in the Windows Server 2016 Core Network Guide to deploy a core network, or for those who have previously deployed the core technologies included in the core network, including AD DS, Domain Name System (DNS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), TCP/IP, NPS, and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS).

For wireless AP configuration details, you must review the product documentation provided by the manufacturer of your wireless APs.

There are two alternatives for deploying NPS server certificates.

However, only the WPA2-Enterprise, WPA-Enterprise, and Open with 802.1X authentication standards are supported for 802.1X Authenticated wireless deployments.

Note While configuring Wireless Network Policies, you must select WPA2-Enterprise, WPA-Enterprise, or Open with 802.1X in order to gain access to the EAP settings that are required for 802.1X authenticated wireless deployments.

This port-based network access control uses the physical characteristics of the switched LAN infrastructure to authenticate devices attached to a LAN port.

Access to the port can be denied if the authentication process fails.

WPA-Enterprise provides improved security over WEP by: Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 – Enterprise (WPA2-Enterprise) Like the WPA-Enterprise standard, WPA2-Enterprise uses the 802.1X and EAP framework.This is a companion guide to the Windows Server® 2016 Core Network Guide.The Core Network Guide provides instructions for planning and deploying the components required for a fully functioning network and a new Active Directory® domain in a new forest.This guide does not provide comprehensive guidance to help you determine which alternative will best meet your needs.In general, however, the choices you face are: Except for the configuration settings made when you run the Configure 802.1X wizard, as documented in this guide, this guide does not provide detailed information for manually configuring NPS conditions, constraints or other NPS settings.
