Authentication
Outer identity for TTLS, PEAP, and EAP-FAST
This setting specifies the outer identity for a user that is sent in clear text. You can specify an anonymous username to hide the user's real identity (for example, anonymous). The encrypted tunnel is used to send the real username to authenticate with the
Wi-Fi
network. If the outer identity includes the realm name to route the request, it must be the user's actual realm (for example, anonymous@example.com).
This setting is valid only if the "Authentication protocol" setting is set to "TTLS," "PEAP," or "EAP-FAST."
