Switch authentication

I am needing to configure Clearpass to authenticate users for switch access (logging on the switch) using RADIUS. Can someone point me to a document showing how to configure Clearpass to accomplish this?

Thank you!

Re: Switch authentication

Does the switch support TACACS? 



If this response is more than 1 year old, it may no longer be accurate. Please consult official Aruba documentation, TAC or your Aruba SE.

Re: Switch authentication

The switches will be Brocade and Avaya.

Re: Switch authentication

You can create a generic RADIUS service and look for authentications coming from those NAS IPs.  I would place this service towards the end of your services list so it won't step on any other services you have enabled.  

 

In terms of then running through the service, select the auth methods used by Avaya and Brocade (most likely PAP and MSCHAP) and then the auth source (AD or admin user repository) and test with the default enforcement policy named "Sample Allow Access Policy"

 

Once you have that working, you can layer in more restrictive access based on AD memberof or other parameters.

Re: Switch authentication

Do you have a document showing how to configure this? I don’t have much experience with Clearpass…

Re: Switch authentication

I am needing a configuration doc show how to configure Clearpass to do RADIUS authentication to allow access to a network switch. I am going to be using Brocade and Avaya, but a document using Cisco (or any other vendor) would be great.
Thank you,

Re: Switch authentication

The documents for those vendors should be found at their respective support or documentation sites.

Re: Switch authentication

I am just looking for the Clearpass relevant configuration to accomplish what I need to do. Which is to authenticate a user who is trying to logon to a network switch using RADIUS.

 

I have the individual switch configurations already.

Thank you,
