Authentication is a significant part of network management. Administrators are responsible for maintenance of vast number of devices. A centralized password authentication mechanism can greatly reduce their burden. JetNet 5310G with the feature of RADIUS Login was designed with this to meet the requirement of administrators.
What is Radius Login
RADIUS server is an approach of transferring authentication, authorization, and accounting data between a remote access server and a central database on networks. In addition, RADIUS is an enabling technology that allows users to provide security access to the Internet. RADIUS enables users to boost security and management of remote LAN access systems.
How Radius Login works
The RADIUS server provides a way to manage logins to various types of equipment in one central office. The fundamental structure of RADIUS is very easy to be understood – large numbers of devices connect to a central RADIUS server. When a device receives a login attempt, such as a username and password, it demands an authentication from the central RADIUS server. All authentication demands are checked to be permitted or denied by the central server, not the devices themselves, RADIUS login assists network administrators who have large networks, and it is easier to centralize access logins of all remote users connecting in one central server.
Benefit of Radius Login
The Implementing of RADIUS results in significant benefits, these includes:
• Centralize administration of user information across all network access servers;
• Obtain centralized accounting and reporting of all remote access to the network, and viewing the real-time status of all currently connected users.
This allows network administrators to manage enormous numbers of remote access users from the RADIUS server (Central office) easily.
