The Ignition Server is an easy-to-deploy RADIUS and TACACS+ server that connects with your existing identity systems and switch infrastructure. It provides a central policy decision point that streamlines access management, improves security and satisfies reporting requirements.
The Ignition Server lets network administrators apply policies that evaluate user account details, switch details and/or any RADIUS attribute to determine network access. Similar criteria may be used to evaluate TACACS+ requests for administrative access. Because authentication is performed directly against your enterprise user directories, access policies operate on the user account information, reducing latency and helping to ensure consistent security.
The Ignition Server integrates with multiple, heterogeneous identity stores and offers location-based and realm-based strategies to search multiple data repositories for the user account. User attribute normalization features are provided to help obtain consistent user data from varied sources.
