Has anyone managed to authenticate yours to the network via 802.1x using Google Directory? I have a case where whole company is using Google Apps and G-Suite with a custom domain and they would like to access wireless network without setting addition LDAP directory. Wireless equipment is aerohive (so radius server is already build-in). Any hints on this topic will be helpful ..

  • Welcome to NE, we hope you will both contribute to and learn from this community. I know before Google provided an LDAP service, I used OSC Radiator and Google IMAP over TLS to authenticate. I haven't ever set up the Aerohive RADIUS server so do not know what it is capable of doing.

  • I am also trying to use "Cloud ID Secure LDAP" + FreeRadius + Cisco2504 to authenticate user in 802.1x. But until now it is not working.

Google have just released Secure LDAP which does what you want. Note you'll need to set add Cloud Identity to your G-Suite domain. I don't know if you'll be able to get Aerohive to talk directly to it, or if you'll need to put FreeRADIUS in between.

Other existing paid options include JumpCloud and Foxpass.

  • Yeah, I can Image there is a need for radius in between. Aerohive devices already include buildin FreeRADIUS.

This feature is available in G Suite Enterprise, Cloud Identity Premium and G Suite for Education. If you have G Suite Basic or Business, you can add Cloud Identity Premium on top of existing license or upgrade to G Suite Enterprise


Yes, I managed to authenticate the network via 802.1x using Cloud ID Secure LDAP. It was Cisco2504 + FreeRADIUS + Cloud ID Premium.

At the end, Authentication Protocol I used in Android was 802.1x EAP-TTLS/PAP.

I think that because Cloud ID Secure LDAP doesn't provide ntPassword attribute, only way to authenticate is using PAP not CHAP, MSCHAPv2.
