Aruba User Experience Insight sensors now support 802.1X authentication on wired networks. Many enterprises use 802.1X to provide an authentication mechanism to client devices attempting to attach to a wired or wireless network. Sensors already support 802.1X authentication on wireless networks. 

How does it work?

With this update, you can provide security credentials to use 802.1X on a wired connection. You can do this on the dashboard by going to
Settings > Networks > Wired > Add or Edit a Network.

The Aruba UXI sensor will update its configuration and use these credentials to authenticate on the network through the switch.

Things to know:

Security credentials can either be None or Enterprise. Passphrase is not a valid option on wired connections. With this feature, we now support: PEAP, LEAP, EAP-TTLS, EAP-TLS on wired as well as wireless networks.
