About VIA
Virtual Intranet Access (VIA) is part of the Aruba remote networks solution targeted for teleworkers and mobile
users. VIA detects the users network environment (trusted and untrusted) and automatically connects the user to
their enterprise network. Trusted network typically refers to a protected office network that allows users to directly
access corporate intranet. Untrusted networks are public Wi-Fi hotspots such as airports, cafes, or home network.
The VIA solution comes in two parts VIA connection manager and the controller configuration.

Aruba VIA2.0.1.0 Mac Edition | Release Notes Features Added in Previous Releases | 7
Chapter 2
Features Added in Previous Releases
The following new features have been introduced in the VIA 2.0 Mac Edition:
Support for Suite-B
Suite B is a new set of cryptographic algorithms that are approved by the US Government for use in classified
communication. Suite B provides the highest levels of security available today in public and commercial algorithms.
To enable Suite B connectivity, VIA has been enhanced to support RFC 4869 (Suite B Cryptographic Suites for
IPsec.)
Additionally, VIA provides support for:
l RFC 5246 and RFC 5430 Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) offload with TLS v1.2
l AES-GCM128/256 for bulk data transfer
l ECDSA for digital signatures, including support for X.509v3 certificates using ECDSA keys with p256/ p384
curves
l ECDH for key agreement using p256/p384 curves
l SHA-256 and SHA-384 for message digests
Suite B support requires a controller running ArubaOS 6.1 or greater with the Advanced Cryptography License. See
the Software Licenses chapter in the latest ArubaOS user guide for more information.
Split Tunnel
With this option, all traffic to the VIA tunneled networks goes through the controller and the rest is bridged directly on
the client.
Support for Certificate-based Authentication
Provides support for certificate-based authentication such as RSA and EC. The IKEv1 supports only RSA whereas
IKEv2 supports both RSA and EC.
Support for IKEv2
IKEv2 supports a wider variety of authentication mechanisms and it is faster when compared to IKEv1 method.
IKEv2 has only single phase authentication process. Aruba VIA 2.0.1.0 Mac Edition supports the following IKEv2
authentication methods:
l X.509 certificate. Controllers running ArubaOS 6.1 or greater support OCSP for the purpose of validating a
certificate that has not been revoked.
l EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) including EAP-TLS and EAP-MSCHAPv2.
Support for OTP
Aruba VIA 2.0.1.0 Mac Edition supports the authentication based on One Time Password (OTP). This password is
valid only for a single login session. Whenever a user establishes a new VPN session, the UI prompts for an OTP.

was successful but the IP address and status options were shown blank. The issue occurred in Mac
