Configure Cisco (802.1X) dot1x port Based Authentication for Wired LAN Network

Introduction to 802.1X (dot1x) This post describes how to configure IEEE 802.1X port‐based authentication on Cisco Switch to prevent unauthorized devices (clients) from gaining access to the network. The IEEE 802.1X standard defines a client‐server‐based access control and authentication protocol that restricts unauthorized devices from connecting to a LAN through publicly accessible ports. The authentication server authenticates each client connected to a switch port before making available any services offered by the switch or the LAN With 802.1X port‐based authentication, the devices in the network have specific roles.             Supplicant – This is often software on a client device such as a PC. Authenticator – This is often a medium between the client device asking for access permission and an authentication server. In most cases, this is either a switch or a wireless access point. Authentication server -This is a RADIUS database. Configuring 802.1X (dot1x) Authentication The […]
