How to Configure 802.1x EAP-TLS to Secure the Wireless Environment with Self-Signed Certificate?
This example shows how to use Android/iOS phone import the self-sign certificate from NXC to get the wireless connection with 802.1x EAP-TLS protected. We need a certificate which is generated by the NXC.
1 Go to CONFIGURATION > Object > Certificate > My certificates, and add a self-signed certificate. In Subject Information, Set the NXC’s IP in the Host IP Address.
In Enrollment Options, select Create a self-signed certificate
2 Export the self-signed certificate from My certificates. Double click the self-signed certificate and scroll down the page to press Export Certificate Only. Save the certificate.
3 Go to Trusted Certificate and import the self-signed certificate.
4 Go to My certificate and Export the “Self-signed certificate with Private Key”. Double click the self-signed certificate and scroll down the page to press Export Certificate with Private Key. Save the certificate and add file extension(*.pfx, *.p12 or *.crt).
5 Import the self-signed certificate into Android phone. (Here I copied the certificate to the Android phone storage then import them. I send the mail with certificate to iPhone and install it.)
Android: In step “e”, the “CREDENTIAL USE” must select as “Wi-Fi”
