LEAP Security

Dear Everyone

I work for a company with about 300 wireless users and 15 access points installed.

Currently I use LEAP authentication as security, which authorizes by username and

password, and thereafter it checks if MAC address is recorded in access list in

RADIUS , and then it establishes a connection.

My question is, is there any other method of AAA in order to increase security ? ,

on WiAPs, on RADIUS or in any other place.

Let's discuss this, and see if I use good AAA for network to be invulnerable as is available


Re: LEAP Security

LEAP is succeptable to dictionary attacks , but PEAP or EAP-TLS which are certificate based authentication types will be good.If ease of implementation is what you want then LEAP can be used

Re: LEAP Security

More on the PEAP and EAP-TLS. With PEAP, the certificate is only on the AAA server, you can do some validation so long as the client has a trust of the ROOT CA that issued the PEAP certificate. In EAP-TLS, the certificate is on the client as well as the AAA server. There are pros and cons to both, and I would recommend reading up on them.

Application Note for PEAP:
