Using Cisco ISE as a generic RADIUS server

Posted by ltlnetworker on August 31, 2014

Cisco ISE is an identity-based policy server featuring a wide range of functions from RADIUS CLI authentication to workstation posturing.

IOS Easy VPN with RADIUS, Cisco Secure ACS 5.1 and AAA cache

The mode depends on the order you place your authentication methods in the aaa commands (see below).

In this example we are caching TACACS admin users’ credentials (telnet, vty) and RADIUS VPN users’ credentials (IKE xauth). The VPN group is also defined on the RADIUS server.
