Ise and failed authentications conducted by endpoints

Hi,

I've Cisco ISE 2.1 with patch 1.

I have applied an Authorization Policy that send an Access_Reject to NAD when a certain endpoint connects to the network.

I notice that ISE correctly begins to log the authorization failures of that endpoint.

After some minutes I change the Authorization Policy to send an Access_Accept message to NAD for the same endpoint.

I notice that ISE 2.1 doesn't authorize the endpoint.

I receive a lot of these messages:

5434 Endpoint conducted several failed authentications of the same scenario

15039 Rejected per authorization profile

Do you know if there is any timer involved in this situation?

I browse also the Live session section but I don't see any session to that endpoint. This is right but I can't understand how to clear the previous Reject phase.

Is there any configuration or command on Ise? or Do I make any other mistakes?

Thanks

Antonio

Hi Antonio,

5434 Endpoint conducted several failed authentications of the same scenario:

The reason for it is that "Client suppression mechanism is enabled by default to protect ISE from DoS/DDoS attack. Logic of this mechanism is to check if the client had multiple failed authentication in specified time interval, after this ISE blocks this client for specified time interval.

You can disable this feature in Administration > System > Settings > Radius, Suppress Anomalous Clients. You can change the settings like how long a client should be blocked etc.

Hope this helps!

Useful information.

Do you know if there is any way to use this information to redirect the device to a specific web portal when it reaches the suppression limit configured?

Thanks.
