I am a student of the University of Guayaquil, Ecuador.
I am proposing to carry out a project so that the students of my university can authenticate through the office 365 using Meraki Wifi.
Is it possible to integrate Meraki Wifi with Office 365 (Azure AD)?
If this is not possible, is it possible to virtualize a Radius Server that integrates with Azure AD and in turn integrate Meraki Wifi with my virtualized Radius Server?
Beforehand thank you very much.
I don't think it is a great solution but you could look at JumpCloud as well.
I would start with trying Windows' NPS as well. If you can get an NPS server to talk with Azure AD, then it should be relatively simple to setup 802.11x. Meraki has good instructions.
Make sure you get a certificate with a reasonable life span. We have had "mysterious" wifi authentication problems that boiled down to expired certificates on our NPS servers. 🙂
@PhilipDAth - thanks for mentioning us. @GuillermoLazo, As Philip indicates, JumpCloud can act as the cloud-based RADIUS service to connect/bind your Office 365 (or Google) accounts to WiFi and VPN equipment, like Cisco Meraki WAPs and switches. We service a number of organizations who have this similar use case and we'd be happy to work with you to see if we can help.
TekRADIUS has a free operation mode and can handle 200+ authentication requests per second with proper hardware configuration.
The only way to join a NPS server to the Azure AD is through AADS (Azure AD Domain Services)
Because this is a managed AD there are some limitations.
- You cannot register the NPS server in the AD, this only breaks the integration with the dial-in properties tab of the user. So you can ignore this one.
- Single sign-on will not work from on-premise domain joined devices, i tried to fix it with re-write rules in the NPS because the Azure AD will use the UPN and the on-prem netbiosdomainname\u.name. This also didn't work.
@PhilipDAth suggested JumpCloud, maybe that worth to look at. But it replaces your Azure AD
