Server Certificate Issued to RADIUS server by a public or private Certificate Authority (CA).Used to establish a secure TLS tunnel and when the RADIUS server needs to prove its identity to the client.In addition to validating the server certificate to reduce potential risks against man-in-the-middle and password-based attacks, the client should be configured by the administrator to connect to specific authentication servers, limit the trusted root CAs available for use with PEAP, and to ”not prompt user to authorize new servers or trusted certification authorities”.Although client computer and user certificates are not required with EAP-PEAPv0 (EAP-MSCHAPv2), in order for the client to trust the server certificate, the private CA certificate from the CA that issued the RADIUS Server certificate must be installed in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store on the client.Again client computer certificates are not required because EAP-PEAPv0 (EAP-MSCHAPv2) is password based.

I have summarised below the steps I have followed, important bits of configuration and importantly windows event log error entry: Main components: pf Sense (2.4.3) Freeradius 3 package pf Sense Certificate Authority Cisco enterprise access point Windows 10 Professional client (standalone not domain) Configuration Process: 1.EAP-PEAPv0 (EAP-MSCHAPv2) requires a server certificate be installed on the RADIUS server.Client Computer Certificate Issued to client computers by a public or private CA and used when the client computer needs to prove its identity to the RADIUS server.Ideally these settings and the private CA certificate are distributed to the clients using Mobile Device Management/Onboarding soft ware or Microsoft group policy and AD CS.Alternatively a certificate purchased from a public root certificate authority such as Veri Sign that is already trusted by the client could be installed on the server and therefore it would not be required to distribute private CA certificates to the clients.
