Using 802.1X on Verkada cameras can be achieved by using MAC-based authentication which is also known as MAB (MAC authentication bypass). Most modern-day RADIUS servers support this configuration and can be implemented by creating a new policy on a AAA server.
How does MAB work?
When MAB is enabled on a switch port, that port will first check if the connected device is 802.1X compliant. If the device doesn't respond, the switch will try to authenticate the connected device with a AAA server by using the MAC address as the username/password.
Before this can work successfully, a systems administrator must configure their RADIUS server to authenticate the MAC address as an allowed device.
How do I know what the MAC address of a Verkada camera is?
All Verkada cameras start with a unique MAC OUI (Organizationally Unique Identifier) which starts with E0:A7:00. The full MAC address can be viewed by looking at the bottom of any Verkada camera when the mount is removed as well as on the Devices page.
