Hello Alex

I am in the process of configuring guest wifi network using WLC and ISE. I configured Open authentication and mac address filtering so that I can monitor and allow the users based on mac addresses.


Once I am authenticated, ISE profiled my device and can access the network. However I can spoof the mac address of the profiled device (my phone) and am able to connect from my laptop using the same mac. No further authentication is needed to access the wifi.

Wanted to check if there is any solution on WLC or ISE to prevent spoofing?

Please advise
