Support WPA3 on FortiWiFi F-series models 7.0.4

FortiWifi  F-series models support WPA3 encryption on local radio of all FortiWiFi F-series models. These models can create SSIDs with WPA3-SAE, WPA3-OWE, WPA3-Enterprise security modes, and broadcast it from the local radio.

To select a WPA3 security mode - GUI:
  1. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > SSIDs and select edit or create a new SSID.

    • WPA3 Enterprise Only - You can select if you want a Local or Radius Server authentication type.
  3. Click OK to save.

Once you've created the SSID, you can apply the SSID to a FortiAP profile, and then apply that profile to the Local WiFi Radio.

To select a WPA3 security mode - CLI:
  1. Create WPA3 SSIDs:

    config wireless-controller vap
      edit "wifi4"
        set ssid "FWF_61F_LR_WPA3_ENT_Group"
        set security wpa3-only-enterprise
        set pmf enable
        set auth usergroupset usergroup "group_local"
        set schedule "always"
      next
    end

set security

Select a security mode:

  • wpa3-sae: WPA3-SAE

  • owe: WPA3-OWE

  • wpa3: WPA3-Enterprise-Only

set auth

Select an authentication type:

  • radius: Radius Server
  • usergroup: Local User Group
To apply a FortiAP profile to a Local WiFi Radio - GUI:
  1. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > Local WiFi Radio and select a FortiAP profile to apply.

  2. Click Apply to save.

end

config wireless-controller wtp-profile
  edit "11ac-only"
    config platform
      set type FWF
    end
    set handoff-sta-thresh 30
    config radio-1
      set band 802.11ac
      set vap-all manual
      set vaps "wifi2" "wifi4" "wifi3" "wifi"
      set channel "40" "44"
    end
