An authentication server can provide password checking for selected Forti Gate users or it can be added as a member of a Forti Gate user group.If you are going to use authentication servers, you must configure the servers before you configure Forti Gate users or user groups that require them.These keys are very long and as a result RADIUS authentication will not work.Maximum key length for MS Windows 2008 is 128 bytes. Microsoft Windows Server 2000, 2003, and 2008 have RADIUS support built-in.RADIUS clients are built into gateways that allow access to networks such as Virtual Private Network servers, Network Access Servers (NAS), as well as network switches and firewalls that use authentication. RADIUS servers use UDP packets to communicate with the RADIUS clients on the network to authenticate users before allowing them access to the network, to authorize access to resources by appropriate users, and to account or bill for those resources that are used.
Transaction authorization occurs when that user logs on and authenticates before performing a task.SEC401 took what I thought I knew and truly explained everything to me.Now, I also UNDERSTAND the security essentials fundamentals and how/why we apply them.RBAC is enforced when Forti OS network users are remotely authenticated via a RADIUS server.For users to authenticate, a security policy must be matched.Loved the training, cannot wait to come back for more.Forti Gate units support the use of external authentication servers.Once authenticated the RADIUS server passes the authorization granted message to the Forti Gate unit which grants the user permission to access the network.The RADIUS server uses a “shared secret” key along with MD5 hashing to encrypt information passed between RADIUS servers and clients, including the Forti Gate unit. Additional security can be configured through IPsec tunnels by placing the RADIUS server behind another VPN gateway.In Role Based Access Control (RBAC), network administrators and users have varying levels of access to network resources based on their role, and that role’s requirement for access specific resources.For example, a junior accountant does not require access to the sales presentations, or network user account information.
