Hello everyone. Welcome to this course about ClearPass Integration with Microsoft Azure. In this course we will discuss different protocols and methods to integrate ClearPass with Microsoft Azure cloud. We will discuss different integration points, we will discuss the protocols and features needed to have this integration completed. And we will discuss few scenarios, typical scenarios that are used in enterprises to integrate their ClearPass with Microsoft Azure services. In this course we will discuss mainly or we'll work mainly in lab and we will do a few scenarios and few demos for different integration ways or integration methods. We will start first by talking about an introduction about this course, which I'm doing right now. We will talk a little bit about Microsoft Azure cloud services. I will talk only about main services that are needed for this integration. So Microsoft Azure cloud services include many services. Most of these services or many of them are not related to this integration. So in this course I will not discuss building full Azure integration or full Azure cloud deployment. I will focus mainly on integration between ClearPass and Microsoft Azure. It is the same from ClearPass side. I will not build a ClearPass from scratch. I will have my ClearPass in my lab up and running. I will only focus on integration between this ClearPass and Microsoft Azure in the cloud. Before starting our course or our scenarios, I will describe my lab setup, I will describe in details what products I have in my lab. What licenses I have in my lab, and what hypothesis, I will use during this lab. This is needed actually for you to understand different scenarios and different integrations and different configuration I will do during this course. This course actually is mainly about lab, not about theory. So in part one in this part or in this introduction, I will have a little bit theory about Microsoft Azure cloud identity. And different protocols supported by these cloud services. I will focus only on what we need for this course or for this lab. So take it from this perspective and make sure that you have your setup done in a proper way as per Microsoft recommendations. When it comes to my lab or my course, we will focus mainly on having the feature running, I will focus only on the feature, how to configure it. So when it comes to add your deployment itself, it is better to go for Microsoft documentation to build it in a proper way. In this course, I will focus only in features, I need to integrate with ClearPass. So before we start I will talk about the lab setup, what I have in my lab, how things are configured in this lab. So you will have a full idea about what we are talking about and our starting point. After that we will talk a little bit about the field scenario actually this course is mainly about scenarios. So you may have documents that talk about this integration, I will try to combine different methodologies and different documents in these scenarios. So in each scenario I will talk about how to do the configuration from either side and how to do the configuration from ClearPass side. We will test it together in our lab, we will see the results and we will discuss these results to make sure that you fully understand how policies are created, how policies are modified and how policies can be customized to match your requirements. There are plenty, there are many scenarios that can be implemented using the same protocols. So in my lab I will have typical scenarios. So in this course I will discuss typical scenarios that are commonly used by enterprises and even when I deploy these scenarios, I will deploy them in a simple way. My idea or my objective mainly is for you to understand the main concept and to know exactly how to do things in your environment. So I will try to to start simple, to only enable the feature with basic setup and basic options. And then we can add on it, we can try one additional advanced option. And I will tell you exactly how to customize these protocols or this integration or these scenarios to match your requirements. So in the first scenario we will talk about Onboard. We will talk about how Onboard and many devices using Azure AD authentication server or authorization server. We will discuss two protocols, will discuss SAML and OAuth2.0. During this course you'll know exactly the difference between the two and the meaning of this scenario and more details. So before we start any scenario, I will talk in details about scenario description. So you know exactly what are the requirements and what we are trying to achieve in this course and this will help you to know exactly the reason I use this protocol against the other. Then in the second scenario, which is about three. In the second scenario we'll talk about integration between ClearPass and Intune, Intune is Microsoft, MDM or MMM. Now Microsoft rebranded this protocol or this product to be in point management instead of Intune. So regardless of the name, whether you call it Intune or inpoint management, configuration is almost the same. So, I will show you the configuration based on the menus and button available right now from Microsoft. One thing about cloud is that menus are changing all the time. So Microsoft from time to time, they change the menus, they change the location of options or menus. So I will discuss things as they are today. If Microsoft did any change, you can easily find the change based on the protocol. So I will discuss the protocol we are trying to achieve and I will show you in details how to enable it in Microsoft Azure and how to customize it. And what information to be collected from Microsoft and to be configured in a ClearPass and vice versa to have this integration happen. So this will be our second scenario, which is ClearPass integration with Intune. We will talk a little bit about this scenario when it is needed and what are the requirements. And we will enable it using EAP-TLS, I will discuss in brief how to configure Intune to issue and install certificates foreign devices. In the last part, part four, we will discuss our third scenario. This scenario is very simple, I will only implement ClearPass in the cloud. Now there are many requirements or many design concepts that may benefit of ClearPass being in the cloud. Many companies are moving to the cloud, they have cloud initiative and they want to make sure that every product they have in campus. Or every product they have on premise can be implemented in the cloud. So In this part, part four, I will discuss how to implement a ClearPass in the cloud, to achieve your design requirements. When it comes to the full design, you need to work sometimes with your local team or maybe your Microsoft architect and local team to build the full design. Building the full design needs a lot of information about your environment. In this lab, I will focus on every feature as an isolated feature. I will focus on every scenario as an isolated scenario. Combining all these scenarios together and building the full design will need more information about your environment. And full understanding of your business and technical objectives. To make sure that you build the design in a very scalable, high availability way. Which needs to go through different documentation from Microsoft and Aruba. So just as a disclaimer when it comes to these deployments, I'll focus only on the feature. My focus is not to build a full production environment in. My lab was built in a very simple way, with minimum hardware only to achieve required features. So when I deploy these scenarios I will use very simple products hardware to achieve these scenarios. And my focus will not be building full blown production environment. So keep this in mind and set the expectation properly that what you see in my lab is not the full typical enterprise production, it is only a lap setup. But I will show you exactly how to enable these features and to have them running in a proper way in your environment. And you should be able to customize these features in your environment to match exactly what you need.
