802.1x for non-domain machines

Discussion in 'Wireless Networks' started by Carlos A. Morillo, Apr 13, 2005.

  1. Is it possible to assign a machine (XP not part of the domain) a certificate
    to access a wireless network? I don't care for accessing the domain as the
    machine is not a member of it. I just need a way to authenticate to the
    wireless AP anf get an IP address to browse the internet.

  2. Yes, it is.
    On windows, every user has a cert store. If you add the certificate to the
    certstore for a particular user, he/she will be able to get access to the
    network. The machine need not be part of the domain.

    The microsoft CA (and may be others) may expose a web interface to request a
    certificate. That interface should allow to request a certificate, and later
    install it as well.
