Does the Automation Server support network authentication via Radius Server (IEEE 802.1X)?
AS supports network authentication via Radius Server (IEEE 802.1X)?
Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) is a networking protocol that provides centralized Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) management for computers to connect and use a network service. RADIUS is a client/server protocol that runs in the application layer, using UDP as transport.
The RADIUS server is usually a background process running on a UNIX or Microsoft Windows server.
RADIUS serves three functions:
- to authenticate users or devices before granting them access to a network,
- to authorize those users or devices for certain network services and
- to account for usage of those services.
SmartStruxure does not support the RADIUS protocol.
