We are evaluating options for AAA/TACACS+.  We have done some research and found open source options, but, they seem to be homegrown which doesn’t quite give us the “warm and fuzzy” feeling.  We have looked at RADIUS, but, so far, it seems there is limited accounting for network gear.  I wanted to ask other EDUs what they suggest for a TACACS+ solution.  Please email offline.

 

Thank you and Happy Holidays.

Hi Ronald,

You might take a look at Radiator [ http://www.open.com.au ]. It's a commercial product implemented in Perl.  I use it for RADIUS but it also supports TACACS+.  It's extremely customizable if you are used to working with unix-style config files.

Best,
Matt
