802.1x Machine Authentication without AD

Hello,

I'm new to 802.1x security, and i'm wondering if it's possible to do windows machine authentication without an active directory?

Thanks,

Dan.

Re: 802.1x Machine Authentication without AD

Hi,

Windows Machine authentication requires machine credentials, and these credentials can only exist on the AD.

What you can do is authenticate the machine using its MAC address (Mac authentication bypass), and for this you only need to configure mab on the switch, make sure the client do not speak dot1x and create the user with username/password = mac address on the RADIUS server.

HTH,
Tiago
