NAC sms registration


Userlevel 6
Hello, all!

Is anybody have experience with configure IdentiFi+NAC with SMS registration?
(As I understand - we have to have sms-gateway... What else? Is there examples or experience?)
Like:
Client connect to SSID -> recive SMS with credentials (or password) to connect.

Thank you!

Hi Alex

I've deployed this once before. First off the SMS verification requires redirection to NAC's captive portal through either PBR or DNS proxy. You then need to enable SMS verification and edit the custom fields with "Mobile Number" as mandatory so user is forced to provide mobile number. You can choose from a combination of passwords ie. Numerical, alpha-numerical, alphabetical and so on. As you've mentioned you'd need to integrate with an SMS gateway supported by NAC/NMS.

Connection process will be as follows:

User connects to SSID>>>User gets redirected to captive portal>>> User registers with details including mobile number>>>NAC/NMS sends user a verfication code via SMS>>>New portal shows in browser where verfication details are required>>>User inputs verification code>>>Network access is granted.

The network access will obsiously be determined by the returned NAC profile. Guest access was used in my scenario.

Hope this helps

Francois

Thank you, Francois!

I may be asking a lot, but is there some step-by-step guide for this implementation?

Hello, Drew!

It's was only nuances for implementation sms-registration.
We contacted with Francois, so you can remove my e-mail, but really it's not so confidential information )))

Thank you!

Hi Drew

The information shared was extracted from the online help in .pdf format. The community thus far doesn't make provision for .pdf upload so maybe that's something worth looking at?

Hi Francois,
Unfortunately there's no option to share files like that on here. We normally use dropbox, box.net, or our corporate FTP server.
But, if I can get my hands on that PDF, we can work on turning it into an article in our knowledge base 🙂
I'll email one of you to connect.

Thanks!
