ISE and CentOS users authentication

Hi, 

 

I'm testing some features of ISE.  We would like to configure some CentOS servers to use RADIUS or TACACS authentication/authorization in ISE.   We know that we don't have TACACS support in Linux, we found some customs libraries but we prefer to use RADIUS.  We found some PAM libraries for that but I would like to know if anyone has an examples or configuration to check it.

 

The objective is to use ISE as central authentication and authorization server for all systems in a customer infrastructure.  The customer has network devices that use TACACS and other important services installed on CentOS.

 

Any suggestion, comment or configuration example ?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi,

 

I know there are some who have successfully used RADIUS instead of TACACS+ for authentication.  Unfortunately, we don't have a guide specific to CentOS.  I would search around and see if there is an example for user authentication using RADIUS for linux operating systems.

 

Regards,

You’re welcome. If we create one, it will be posted here in the communities. I would give google a try to see if there is a guide somewhere else.

Re: ISE and CentOS users authentication

Thx marce1000, Just a note, in this procedure (I´ve seen this note in others links with PAM modules for RADIUS), you need to create the user in Linux.
Is there any PAM module for RADIUS which don´t need to create the user locally ?
