WLAN security is as follows: User access security: Link authentication, access authentication, and data encryption are used to ensure validity and security of user access on wireless networks. Service security: This feature protects service data of authorized user from being intercepted by unauthorized users during transmission. For details, see WLAN Security Configuration.

802.1x local authentication configuration on S series switch
For S series switches except S1700 switches, in 802.1x local authentication and authorization, user information (including the local user name, password, and attributes) is configured on the switch. 802.1x local authentication and authorization feature fast processing and low operation cost, whereas the amount of information that can be stored is limited by the switch hardware capacity.
Assume that the user connects to GE0/0/1 of the switch and belongs to VLAN 100. In addition, the user uses local authentication and can connect to the network without authorization. Configure 802.1x local authentication as follows:
1. Create VLAN 100, and add interface GE0/0/1 to this VLAN.
[HUAWEI] vlan 100 
[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] port link-type access
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] port default vlan 100 
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] quit
2. Configure the local user and the authentication domain of the user.
[HUAWEI] aaa     
[HUAWEI-aaa] local-user huawei password cipher hello@123
[HUAWEI-aaa] local-user huawei service-type 8021x
[HUAWEI-aaa] authentication-scheme test
[HUAWEI-aaa-authen-test] authentication-mode local
[HUAWEI-aaa-authen-test] quit
[HUAWEI-aaa] authorization-scheme test
[HUAWEI-aaa-author-test] authorization-mode none
[HUAWEI-aaa-author-test] quit
[HUAWEI-aaa] domain default_admin
[HUAWEI-aaa-domain-default_admin] authentication-scheme test
[HUAWEI-aaa-domain-default_admin] authorization-scheme test
3. Enable 802.1x  authentication globally and on a specified interface.
a. Traditional mode (applicable to all versions)
[HUAWEI] undo authentication unified-mode  //Switch to the traditional mode (This configuration applies only to V200R005C00 and later versions.)
[HUAWEI] quit
<HUAWEI> reboot   //This configuration applies only to V200R005C00 and later versions.
[HUAWEI] dot1x enable
[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet0/0/1
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] dot1x enable
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] dot1x authentication-method eap
b. Unified mode (applicable to V200R005C00 and later versions)
[HUAWEI] authentication unified-mode 
[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet0/0/1
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] authentication dot1x
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] authentication mode multi-authen max-user 100
