802.1X Environment Setup

The following components must be set up prior to configuring your 802.1X environment:

  • Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services and NDES (SCEP) configured on your domain

  • Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services and RADIUS or NPS service configured on your domain

Note: For SCEP, additional steps are required. You must use the SCEP payload in a mobile device configuration profile since Jamf Pro does not have an Active Directory Certificate payload for mobile device in configuration profiles. Also, since the default SCEP template is not designed for this purpose, several changes are necessary. The changes needed for SCEP are indicated where needed in the following procedures.

Requirements

To configure 802.1X, you need:

  • Access Point—You must configure your access point according to the manufacturer's recommendations and your environment's needs. The access point must be configured to communicate with a RADIUS controller.

  • Wired Switch—You must configure your wired switch according to the manufacturer's recommendations and your environment's needs. The wired switch must be configured to communicate with a RADIUS controller.

  • Domain Infrastructure—To configure the domain infrastructure, see the following sections of this guide:
