What is TACACS+?
TACACS+ is a remote authentication protocol that allows a remote access server to communicate with an authentication server in order to validate a user’s access to a network device such as a wireless access point or wired switch (i.e. network device administration). TACACS+ can be used to authenticate the following kinds of access to the device:
- Telnet access
- SSH access
- Console access
- Web management access
- and more…
