    You can use radius or tacacs authentication to control console authentication.  


    6300(config)# aaa authentication login
    console Console authentication list
    default Default authentication list
    https-server Https-server authentication list
    ssh SSH authentication list
    telnet TELNET authentication list
    6300(config)# aaa authentication login console
    group Server-group
    local Local authentication
    6300(config)# aaa authentication login console group
    WORD Group Name or family name (Valid family names: tacacs, radius and
    local)

    Further reference to this is present in Security Guide

    We do not have such capability in AOS switches currently. We can control using only RADIUS/TACACS.
