Radius Authentication without certificate on server.

Hello,

Is there a way to implement Radius server authentication in controller based environment without installing any certificate on Microsoft  server (2003 or 2008 R2).

Plan is to use only IAS or NPS Radius servers.

Will controller create a tunnel with radius server in absence of certificate on server end (If it's possible?)

is there any documentation where it is defined what type or EAP  or 802.1x  is supported by controllers or Autonomous AP's.

so there shoudn't be any issues while installing NPS with AD on 2008 and it supports the administrative authentication as well like telnet/ssh etc. The only thing you can't achieve pea/eap-tls authentication against radius server without installing certificate on it. hope it helps.

Hi Kamal,

Without certificate, it would not be possible to configure PEAP or EAP-TLS with radius for wireless users.

WLC does support all common EAP flavors.

Hi Jatin,

Thank you for reply.

Is there any possibility of deploying NPS with AD and no need to install any certificate on Server.
