ACS v5.1 - LDAP and PEAP

Hi!

I'm trying to authenticate a WinXP client with PEAP.

And since it is only possible to define only one Active Directory in ACS v5.1 ( why on earth is that???), I had to define my other AD domain through LDAP.

But when I try to authenticate, this is what happens:

12307  PEAP authentication  failed
11504  Prepared EAP-Failure
11003  Returned RADIUS  Access-Reject

What does this mean? Is it possible that ACS *STILL* does not support PEAP authentication agains LDAP??

The other thing that bothers me, is that the matching rule is Default.

But when I go into the matching Policy to see the hit count, none of the rules (including Default) has increased its Hit Count.. very strange.

Thanks.

Re: ACS v5.1 - LDAP and PEAP

LDAP as an external database never supports PEAP with  Mschap. The client should  be installed with the EAP-GTC supplicant.


Peap Mschapv2 only works with Active Directory.


Its an LDAP limitation, not ACS- there is no LDAP API to do it.

Supported LDAP server and 802.1x clients:

You may check PEAP FAQ's, please take a look under EAP TYPE comparison chart:

Re: ACS v5.1 - LDAP and PEAP

We are already using PEAP and LDAP with our freeradius-server.
The only prerequisite is that a NTLM-hash of the password must be stored in  ldap directory.

And especially if the LDAP catalogue already is an Active Directory catalogue (as it is in my case), this should work without further modifications.
So why isn't this possible with Cisco ACS?

Re: ACS v5.1 - LDAP and PEAP

You must be using PEAP with LDAP but the inner method wouldn't be MSCHAPv2. Please check it must be PEAP-GTC because it does support LDAP.

Re: ACS v5.1 - LDAP and PEAP

We only use the built-in WinXP supplicant, so it does indeed use MSCHAPv2

Re: ACS v5.1 - LDAP and PEAP

Strange. I haven't seen PEAP-MSCHAPv2 working with LDAP. Could  you please show me one passed authentication from your Free radius server that says database is LDAP and authentication method is PEAP-MSchapv2.


Also, please provide me the packet traces between radius server and LDAP?


I would like to see whether radius is editing the packet before sending it to LDAP or simply passing over  the same authentication method in the radius -reuquest.

Re: ACS v5.1 - LDAP and PEAP

Hi again.

Sorry for taking so long, blame it on high workload.

I'm attaching 2 files; one is a debug log from Freeradius, and the other is a Wireshark packet capture.

Both files are produced during  a successfull logon from a "vanilla" WinXP client to a LDAP server.

Hopefully, you'll get enough info to implement the same thing into a future (next) version of ACS v5

One other thing that should be implemented for sure is support for more than one AD.

Thanks.
