Authenticating wireless access points \ RADIUS through Azure AD
I would like to see Authenticating wireless access points \ RADIUS servers through Azure AD , not having to store user accounts in local active directory

Microsoft Denmark already have a solution online that uses Azure AD for authentication for guest. This solution is provided by Microsoft IT so it should be available globally. You can see some screenshot of the solution here: http://imgur.com/a/B17Ej
It would be great, if they would share this solution with the world :)

is there any solution to do so? looking forward to realize :)

Yes definitely would like / need this. Now i still need to have a local AD with MFA and AD connect only for wifi accesspoints and vpn.

A simple Auth Proxy for legacy protocols would be tremendous.
Not only for AP's but, firewall L8 identification, switching admin access, etc. Mainly for devices that rely on local auth to operate.
Please develop a reverse proxy/MFA on-prem agente like software that can act as NPS against Azure AD.

I'm not sure how this would interact when users have MFA enforced on their Azure AD accounts, but we would want to see that included as part of this support.

It got be great, if we could get this feature in Azure AD

Would be great to use local radius with Azure AD. With simple LDAP query to begin with. Also other third party systems often use LDAP.
Rafael Reyes commented
Because this is not included in Azure AD I will either have to invest in hardware to have local AD, Radius server or spend money on a third party service. Money I would gladly spend on a Azure AD, Office 365 license that would enable this functionality in my existing infrastructure.
This would be an awesome feature! pleas implement it! :-D
Please also consider not only to implement the authentication, but dynamic vlan assignment as well :-)
So...right now is impossible to user Azure AD to authenticate wireless users via 802.1x??

I'd love to see this too. In some of our sites we are only maintaining an Active Directory infrastructure in order to provide radius. It would be great to be able to pull down this setup and have it all online!
Raymond Teo commented
I would like to see this too, since radius is also one of the highly used "legacy" authentication like LDAP. There are workarounds to deploy additional VM to run the NPS services for radius. However, it will be neater to provide it as part of the AADDS, just like how LDAP/LDAPS is being supported currently.
RADIUS would allow me to authenticate to Azure virtual appliances like Kemp load balancers using Azure AD accounts too..

I would love to see this. I don't want to have to create a FreeRadius on prem server when I am using azure ad basic or premium. I want to encourage SSO with the small business I consult and to allow them WIndows 10 pro authentication, Office 365 Authentication, and Wireless Network Authentication all via the exact same username and password with everything being manged by O365 for username and password changes.
Jens Lorenz commented
I agree. There should be some kind of RADIUS or NPS like function to authenticate directly with AAD (maybe part of the Azure Domain Services?)
That way there would be the chance of having cloud born environments where only the necessary WLAN/network infrastructure needs to be on-prem. Also for small locations that use only cloud services.
