    Overview

    Cisco's complete, authoritative guide to Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) solutions with CiscoSecure ACS

  • AAA solutions are very frequently used by customers to provide secure access to devices and networks
  • AAA solutions are difficult and confusing to implement even though they are almost mandatory
  • Helps IT Pros choose the best identity management protocols and designs for their environments
  • Covers AAA on Cisco routers, switches, access points, and firewalls
  • This is the first complete, authoritative, single-source guide to implementing, configuring, and managing Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) identity management with CiscoSecure Access Control Server (ACS) 4 and 5. Written by three of Cisco's most experienced CiscoSecure product support experts, it covers all AAA solutions (except NAC) on Cisco routers, switches, access points, firewalls, and concentrators. It also thoroughly addresses both ACS configuration and troubleshooting, including the use of external databases supported by ACS. Each of this book's six sections focuses on specific Cisco devices and their AAA configuration with ACS. Each chapter covers configuration syntax and examples, debug outputs with explanations, and ACS screenshots. Drawing on the authors' experience with several thousand support cases in organizations of all kinds, AAA Identity Management Security presents pitfalls, warnings, and tips throughout. Each major topic concludes with a practical, hands-on lab scenario corresponding to a real-life solution that has been widely implemented by Cisco customers. This book brings together crucial information that was previously scattered across multiple sources. It will be indispensable to every professional running CiscoSecure ACS 4 or 5, as well as all candidates for CCSP and CCIE (Security or R and S) certification.

    Anonymous More than 1 year ago
    I obtained AAA Identity Management Security at the Sonoran Desert Security Users Group (SDSUG) meeting. The book addresses the two major versions of the Cisco Access Control Server (ACS) platform, 4.x and 5.x and primarily focuses on how to implement, configure, and manage AAA identity management with CiscoSecure ACS 4.X and 5.X. It also covers how ACS integrates with various security solutions such as Identity Stores, VPN, NAS for 802.1X, and Cisco ASA/PIX. The book explains everything with real, practical examples, beginning with basic AAA concepts to advance concepts on ACS 4.x & 5.X. It provides a mixture of scenarios and configuration examples. The book is a nice reference on how on to tie up all the elements of AAA on the various Cisco Devices. PROS: If you are a Cisco house, then this is an excellent book. It focuses on specific Cisco devices (e.g. routers, switches, access points, firewalls) and their AAA configuration with ACS. Each section provides configuration syntax and examples, debug outputs with explanations, and ACS screenshots. The lab scenarios correspond to real-life solutions and is very useful when setting up ACS in your environment. CONS: If you are not a Cisco house, then this book will not be of great use. It does provide a good overview of RADIUS; TACACS; and LDAP but that would not be enough reason to purchase the book.
