Setup FreeRADIUS on Kali Linux for 802.1X Authentication
This following video explains how to setup a FreeRADIUS server on Kali Linux. The objective is to use the FreeRADIUS server as an 802.1X authentication server for a simple Wi-Fi network infrastructure.
Here is the setup I have used in the lab to test the solution:
- 1x virtual machine running Kali Linux 4.0
- 1x Cisco router
- 1x Cisco WLC 2504 controller
- 1x Cisco AP 1702
- 1x Aruba controller 651
- 1x Aruba AP 105
- 1x MacBook Air running MacOS 10.11.1
- 1x Asus Laptop running Windows 8
For this test, we have used the EAP-PEAP[EAP-MSCHAPv2] EAP method. However, you can use other EAP methods with FreeRADIUS. For more details, feel free to have a look at FreeRADIUS documentations.
This is my first tutorial video, don’t hesitate to give me your feedbacks and thank you again for watching!
