5th generation of netADIT
The fifth generation of netADIT has been available since July 2020. Here is an overview of the most important changes:
- Changing of the underlying PHP version to increase performance
- Modernization and extension of the GUI - keyword Responsive Design
- Extension of the administration area for more efficient management of devices, NAC boxes and guests
- Guest portal in a new look and with new possibilities to customize
The changes in detail
As the basic system, netADIT V5.x is still based on the 7th generation of CentOS or RedHat Enterpise Linux, however the change to PHP 7.2 was made. This offers a performance increase with the possibility of a direct upgrade for existing installations. Support for NAC boxes based on CentOS 5 / RedHat 5 was discontinued after a transition period of 3 years.
In the area of graphic design, the entire system was put on a new footing and rebuilt from scratch. Thanks to responsive design, netADIT can now be used optimally for every display with all current browsers. The login page of both, the GUI and the guest portal, can now be decorated with their own background image or even their own website as background in addition to the already known design options. If that is still not enough "unique", the integration of your own CSS offers almost unlimited possibilities.
In the area of administration, additional functions such as automatic refresh of tables and log files now make daily work easier. Likewise, guest users / devices with different status can now be displayed in a single table and filtered according to this. Of course, the listings in the style of netADIT V4.x is still possible - the user simply decides in his own settings how he wants to see and use netADIT V5.x.
Extensions in the area of the management of NAC boxes and devices are also an important part of netADIT V5.x. The standard configuration for 802.1x can now be overwritten for each NAC box. In combination with the new failover service on the NAC boxes, system failures can be bridged more efficiently and authentication problems avoided.
