RBAC Radius with Microsoft NPS 2012 R2

safe-access-controlIn this configuration I’m at looking at using Microsoft NPS 2012 R2 as radius server and I’m going to skip the installation of NPS because it really is just a next, next, finish installation. In this demo I already have this NPS system connected to a Windows domain, my goal is to create role based access on Cisco IOS routers while using radius to login. I’ll have a couple for active directory accounts each them will represent different types of allowed access to these IOS routers. One account will get full administrative access while the other will only get read access, how cool cat is that 😉 !

Site-To-Site VPN via CCP

security-gallery-01258I have ran through before on how to create a site-to-site VPN with Cisco SDM which sounds like a repeat but I thought why not bring CCP into light and since I’m studying the newly created CCNA Security (640-554) I figured let’s create a tutorial on it. In this lab I am going to post the running-config of both locations so you can either run it through Packet Tracer or live equipment if you wish. I am running two Cisco 2811s with Advanced Security Version 12.4(24)T8. Let’s do it! Continue reading “Site-To-Site VPN via CCP”

Configuring AAA – Locally
