It is assumed that delegates will have a working knowledge of TCP/IP and a familiarity with Microsoft Windows Server 2008. Some familiarity with Cisco IOS would be an advantage.

Overview Overview

A 2 day practical course that covers the theory of RADIUS and TACACS+ protocols. Network Policy Server (NPS) on Windows 2008 Server will be used to implement Connection Request and Network Policies to allow users access to network resources. A windows based TACACS+ server will be used to investigate the operation of this protocol to provide authentication, authorisation and accounting for users accessing network resources.

There is an option for an additional one day workshop to configure and test IEEE802.1x authentication using Windows 7 client as the supplicant, a Cisco switch as the authenticator and an NPS server to provide the authentication. Delegates will configure the Cisco switch and NPS server to use the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP).
