Authentication of admins, Radius

Part of Splynx Framework is a Radius server. Radius protocol is used for authentication, authorisation and accounting purpose (AAA).

With Splynx you can setup that when administrator accesses equipment, his credentials will be checked over Radius server database. If his Username/Password is correct, he will be able to login to equipment. If not, he will not get access. This is a very convenient approach compare to local login. Imagine if you hire a new administrator and you need to update hundreds of routers, APs and switches to create him local login everywhere or you can give him one common Login/Password. But when person leaves the company, you should change these credentials everywhere. Better is to connect all networking devices to Radius server and verify administrator login using Radius protocol.

Below are tutorials of how to configure admin Login using Radius Splynx server on different platforms:

→ Mikrotik: Radius admin login to Mikrotik routers

→ Cisco: AAA for login on Cisco equipment

→ Juniper: Junos admin login using Radius protocol
