I`m planning to auto issue certificate to employee machines, then i can use EAP chaining,
Q1-can i use that using ISE internal CA for that?
Q2-can i use BYOD with employee domain-machines ?

Thanks alot for help.

1. No. ISE Internal CA as of 1.4 is only for device that goes through onboarding flow. plus the issued cert is a user cert and not a machine cert.
2. You can put any supported device through onboarding but it just would not make sense for domain computer since BYOD is meant for personal devices.

Hi, sorry but it is a user cert? I can see in the cert template that the SAN is the MAC address of the device. Isn't that a machine cert?


It is a user cert. The MAC address inserted into SAN is informational. You can use it to cross check with the actual endpoint MAC address in case the user somehow export the cert and try to use it on another device.
