Cisco wireless EAP-TLS authentication issues

Unanswered Question
Aug 27th, 2012
User Badges:


We have setup a new wireless environment and were looking at using EAP-TLS. This works ok, but no matter what we do it will never prompt for username and password credentials as well as the mutual certificate authentication. Is there a way that this can occur? We are using:

Cisco WLC 7.2


MICROSOFT SERVER 2008 AD infrastructure

Windows 7 PC

Any info or articles greatly appreciated

Kind regards

EAP TLS just uses a certificate on the client machine for authentication. Peap uses credentials for authentication. You can't use both.

EAP-TLS does not prompt for credentials. It uses the clients certificates to provide client's identity.

You need to read EAP-TLS deployment guide, it is interesting and useful: http://tiny.cc/l27ojw
