TACACS and TACACS+ security

You can use the security protocol Terminal Access Controller Access Control System (TACACS) or TACACS+ to authenticate the following kinds of access to the RUCKUS device:

  • Telnet access
  • SSH access
  • Console access
  • Web management access
  • Access to the Privileged EXEC level and CONFIG levels of the CLI

The TACACS and TACACS+ protocols define how authentication, authorization, and accounting information is sent between a RUCKUS device and an authentication database on a TACACS/TACACS+ server. TACACS/TACACS+ services are maintained in a database, typically on a UNIX workstation or PC with a TACACS/TACACS+ server running.
