NG ID manager proxy server

  • Updated 1 year ago
After the upgrade in NG this weekend it looks like several of our AP's now show an icon in the monitor tab that reads "ID Manager Proxy Server", I can't seem to find any real updated info about this. Anyone have any idea what this is or what its used for?

I have not seen any specific documentation on this change either, however I believe this relates to a consensus of the local domain of AP's  deciding which AP will be used as a radec proxy for authentications.

Radius and or Aerohive Guest PPSK functions.

Hope that helps.

Gene is absolutely right. I was also unaware that this functionality had been added as well. It would be good to know whether or not it is still a paid for add-on service.

When you create a User group for PPSKs and choose for password location "Service" you will use the ID Manager system to store the PPSKs online.
Like in the Classic ID Manager you will need to validate each PPSK when you login through RadSec against the ID Manager service.
This feature is free of charge and is implemented by default in NG.

As Hannes, Gene, and Luke said, it's a service included so that your APs can validate Cloud PPSK/Radius users. I was working with my SE last week to come up with a NG migration plan and I verified with him that you will see RADSEC proxies for each management subnet APs are on. My SE mentioned that a primary and backup RADSEC will be chosen much like with router DR/BDR elections.
