Pros Of Radius Wi-Fi Authentication

Technology has travelled a long way since it was introduced, especially with wireless technology. With time, the list of devices that support wireless networking in one form or another has grown ten folds, from phones to computers and TVs- even microwaves now.

The magic behind all these forms lies in the hardware and efficient computer network communication protocols, which drive our campaign for completely wirelessly connected futures! But, unfortunately, many old ones are still being used today, like wifi (Wireless Fidelity)and Bluetooth® basics + more advanced.

Wifi authentication using RADIUS authentication is a popular and effective way to ensure wifi connection security. This article explains some of the advantages of using Open RADIUS for wifi authentication.

Centralized authentication system:

Managing a wireless network of hundreds or thousands becomes easy when you use RADIUS servers. All user requests for access, as needed, and authentication is handled from one point without considering different device configurations.

 With an enterprise setting that size, it’s essential to have robust security features like dynamic WEP keys, which can help protect all devices on the same spectrum as your router (this includes both Guests & employees).

Better network security:

The RADIUS server is the spot where all the wireless infrastructure is handled. Being the central place of the connection, it saves up time and effort for IT administrators by distributing their networks into virtual LANs. You could also set this type up as external authentication since it uses an EAP method configured in advance within itself rather than something more dynamic like PEAP.

Separate authentication for all users:

With a FreeRADIUS server for wifi authentication, managing the credentials is easy and convenient. Credentials are accessible from one place and can be changed easily without affecting network performance of others, even though each user might have their own saved password in case they need it again later on!

As this protocol uses encryption during communication which protects passwords itself and provides basic security. But if you want more than just that, other services are available such as IP masking/firewall settings – these two would help ensure no one else could access your internet connection through attacks.
