Planning and Implementing a Network Unit 5 Individual Project Kregg M. Soltow August 18, 2011 American Intercontinental University Explain the necessity for configuring a RADIUS server in their office. RADIUS stands for “Remote Authentication Dial In Person Services.” Its major use is by Net support suppliers that give access to cyberspace to consumers via a dial-in link through the phone line. Broadband Net services through DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) killed off the necessity of dialing into an ISP’s network and taken out the primary utilization of RADIUS servers. The RADIUS server is responsible for three areas of operation of the ISP's network. These are known as "AAA" services. AAA stands for authentication, authorization and accounting. The RADIUS server examines the returned problem and compares it with its own effects from using the encryption major it’s got registered versus that person on the exact term. RADIUS SERVER

Explain the benefits of installing a RADIUS server in their office. Tight security In large networks, security information may be scattered throughout the network on different devices. RADIUS allows user information to be stored on one host, minimizing the risk of security loopholes. All authentication and access to network services is managed by the host functioning as the RADIUS server. Flexibility RADIUS server software is distributed in source code format to Livingston customers. Using modifiable "stubs," RADIUS can be adapted to work with existing security systems and protocols. The RADIUS server may be adapted to your network, rather than adjusting your network to work with RADIUS. RADIUS may be used with any communications server that supports the RADIUS protocol. When new security technology becomes available or security needs increase, RADIUS may be expanded to offer new services. Simplified management Security information is stored in text files at a central location, the RADIUS server. Adding new users to the database or modifying existing user information can be easily accomplished by editing these text files. Extensive logging capabilities RADIUS provides extensive audit trail capabilities, referred to as RADIUS accounting. Information collected in a log file can be analyzed for security purposes, or used for billing. Explain the difficulties and problems associated with setting up RADIUS server configuration. Connection problems of RADIUS server's matchine from your workstation. Firewalls can interfere with connectivity. Check the server has been configured to accept connections from your IP address? The server must have your machine’s IP address in its NAS (Network Access Server) list. The software RADIUS client acts as a NAS. This must be checked at the server end. If the client’s computer is multi-homed you must either bind your client to a particular IP address or determine which address is picked up and make that the NAS address at the server.
