LAN

Basics

  1. 1.
    To create a LAN rule, add an item under the Rule collection hive and select LAN Rule.
  2. 2.
    Give the rule a Name that explains for what the rule is used for. Furthermore, a descriptive name will help you to identify authentication requests processed by this rule in your logs easily later on.
  3. 3.
    Do not forget to Enable the rule!

Authentication

Under the Authentication hive, your first choice is whether you want to allow or decline Certificate-based or Username/Password-based authentication for this rule.

Certificate-based Authentication

For certificate-based authentication you have the following choices to further constrain incoming authentication requests.

Allow only specific CAs (Trusted Roots)

This allows you to narrow down incoming authentication requests to specific trusted root CAs. Those CAs can be a subset of all Trusted Roots you have configured on the RADIUSaaS platform.

Filter for Intune IDs

This is a historical setting. If your clients are authenticating with certificates that your clients received during the AAD-Join, you want to filter for your Intune Tenant ID.
In case you have entered your Tenant IDs as described here, the default behaviour of RADIUSaaS is that only machines presenting a certificate with extension OID 1.2.840.113556.5.14 and a whitelisted value for the Tenand ID will get access to the network. With the rule engine, you now have the option to further restrict the access to specific Intune IDs for a specific rule or to ignore the certificate extension. This allows you to have a multi-deployment setup, where some clients come with certificates providing the respective OID and some do not.

Username/Password-based Authentication

After enabling Username/Password-based authentication, you can apply additional filtering by configuring a Regex on the Username. Default is all Usernames

Configuration

Under the Configuration hive you are able to configure additional filter criteria based on the origin of authentication requests as well as assign VLAN IDs.

Switch Filter

This MAC address filter allows you to permit specific switches to communicate with RADIUSaaS. This is not a MAC address filter for endpoints!
To set a MAC-Address-based switch filter, either select Addresses or Groups.
  • If you select Addresses, you can specify multiple switch MAC addresses.
  • If you select Groups, you can reference one or more of your pre-defined MAC Address Groups.
The following notations are supported for the MAC addresses:
  • xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx
  • xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
  • xxxxxxxxxxxx

VLAN Assignment

The RADIUSaaS rule engine provides several ways to assign Virtual-LAN IDs. The following options are available:

Static

  • Statically specify the VLAN ID which should be assigned based on the related rule

By Certificate Extension

Currently it is not supported to add custom certificate extensions to SCEP profiles in many MDM systems, including Microsoft Intune and JAMF.
We therefore recommend to use the Certificate Subject Name of the certificate instead to add a VLAN assignment.
  • Select one of your created Certificate Extensions
  • The filter is set to match the Value to your specified extension (OID)
  • Wildcards will be translated to .* Regex

By Certificate Subject Name Property

  • You can also assign VLAN IDs based on properties in the Subject Name of your certificate
  • Therefor, specify in which property the VLAN ID is stored
  • Then, configure which string the VLAN ID is prefixed with
  • The VLAN ID is not required to have a prefix. However, it can be required to use a prefix in case your Subject Name carries the same attribute more than once (e.g. several CN's are quite common).
As an example, the following rule will assign the VLAN ID 15 based on the Subject Name attribute OU prefixed with vlan- :

Additional RADIUS Attributes

In case you require return attributes that are not available by default, please contact our support.
The RADIUSaaS rule engine provides several ways to return additional RADIUS attributes (besides the VLAN ID). The following options are available:

Static

Statically specify the return attribute(s) and their value(s) which should be assigned based on the related rule.

By Certificate Extension

Currently it is not supported to add custom certificate extensions to SCEP profiles in many MDM systems, including Microsoft Intune and JAMF.

  • The value provided in the Subject Name property is not required to have a prefix. However, it can be required to use a prefix in case your Subject Name carries the same attribute more than once (e.g. several CN's are quite common).
