    How 802.1X Works The network elements in the above graphics are those involved in a typical wireless LAN. When 802.1X is running, a wireless device must authenticate itself with the access point in order to get access to the Existing LAN. With respect to the terms used in the 802.1X standard, access points (APs) function as authenticators and wireless devices function as supplicants.

  • Page 161

    The RADIUS server can then act as a central repository of user profile information. Such use of a centralized authentication server allows the user to access wireless LANs at many different points, but still be authenticated against the same server. In response to the Access-Request, the RADIUS server sends an Access-Challenge to the AP, which is then relayed in the form of an EAP-Request to the device.

  • Page 162

    Benefits of 802.1X Central User Administration The Client allows network administrators to continue to use RADIUS or another AAA server as their centralized authentication server. In 802.11b, where authentication took place between the access point and the station, there was no concept of passing credentials from the access point to an authentication server.

  • Page 163

    Cisco LEAP The message exchange used by Cisco LEAP is proprietary. This protocol is not a standard EAP type, but is supported by the Client through a licensing arrangement with Cisco. Relative Merits of Authentication Protocols MD5 is the least secure of the EAP protocols as it only does a one-way authentication, and does not support automatic distribution and rotation of WEP keys, increasing the administrative burden of manual WEP key maintenance.
