Juniper Mist IoT Assurance

The Juniper Mist IoT Assurance cloud service streamlines IT operations while securing network connections for headless IoT and BYOD devices. It uses Multi Pre-Shared Key (MPSK) or Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK) as new types of identity and policy vectors to provide a simple yet comprehensive way to onboard client devices without relying on client MAC addresses. 

Key Features

  • MAC-less client device onboarding
  • Ability to create, rotate, and auto-expire PSKs at cloud scale
  • Dynamic traffic engineering
  • Key-based WxLAN policy
  • Personal WLAN
  • Active device usage tracking per PSK
  • Automated key provisioning and rotation

Features + Benefits

Simplified onboarding

Onboard client devices without relying on MAC addresses for seamless experiences and the same secure segmentation and policy control you get with traditional 802.1X authentication.

Dynamic traffic engineering

Based on MPSK identity, IoT traffic can be forwarded locally to an upstream access switch with a specified VLAN tag or tunneled to a Juniper Mist Edge in the data center for secure transport to the application server. In both scenarios, traffic remains isolated from the rest of the network.

PSK role-based WxLAN policy

Assign network policy restrictions to client devices based on PSK role using the Juniper Mist cloud-based WxLAN policy framework. IT admins can easily allow IoT devices to access only required resources and block access to everything else.

Key lifecycle management

Simplify Day 2 operations at scale with automatic PSK expiration.  A simple, effective key migration technique allows IT to keep PSKs regularly rotated while onsite personnel avoid any disruption in service.

End-to-end PSK usage visibility

IoT Assurance provides full visibility into active devices for each PSK at the organization level. IT admins can easily track which client devices are currently active on a given PSK and display top PSKs by current active client count.

100% programmable APIs

Easily integrate IoT Assurance into any mobile device management solution to streamline IoT device provisioning or into any user self-provisioning portal.

Automated User-Based PSK Generation

Create self-provisioning PSK portals with Juniper Mist to automate PSK generation based on user identity. This supports BYOD workflows leveraging native SAML connectors for SSO (single sign-on) experiences. Enables seamless client device onboarding via mobile QR code or entering a personalized passphrase without installing any client software.
