In the past, it was not possible at KIT to connect IoT devices that do not support authentication via WPA-Enterprise to the WLAN. This is now made possible by the KIT "KIT-IoT" WLAN introduced in July 2021 using Multi Pre-Shared Key (MPSK) technology. For this purpose, each device receives its own WPA key, which is assigned to the MAC address and VLAN.
IT administrators can now also register wireless clients with their MAC address via the NETVS network services portal using the "MACAuth" menu item and generate a WPA key.
The clients are thereby - comparable to WiFi2VLAN - hung in the VLAN in which they were entered.
To use the service, the corresponding VLAN must be enabled.
