RADIUS Authentication

RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) is a networking protocol that provides centralized Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) management for users who connect and use a network service. RADIUS is commonly used for managing access to network resources, such as Wi-Fi networks, virtual private networks (VPNs), and other types of networked services.

RADIUS operates in a client-server architecture. Network devices (routers, switches, firewalls, VPNs, access points) act as RADIUS clients and forward authentication requests to the RADIUS server. The RADIUS server processes these requests, authenticates the user, and communicates the authorization and accounting information back to the client.

The ZTAA platform supports RADIUS authentication along with MFA over PAP & CHAP authentication methods. The ZTAA platform acts as a RADIUS server and receives authentication requests from RADIUS clients, such as routers, firewalls, or VPNs, verifies the credentials of the user, and returns an authorization decision to the client.

To feature for RADIUS configuration in ZTAA is available in Identity Management -> Identity Provider
