FMC External Authentication with RADIUS

In this post, I am going to show you how to set up FMC external authentication with RADIUS. Why we would need that?!, simply put, to have a scalable solution in our environment that will allow us to manage accesses to our FMC appliance. Even if we configure the FMC with an external authentication server, we do still have the local admin account enabled that we can use in case the external authentication server is down.

FDM Multiple Admin Accounts

In this post, I am going to show you how creating multiple admin accounts on FDM for GUI accesses can be possible by using some tools you would most likely have in your environment. First, as we know Firepower Device Management (FDM) does not support creating multiple admin accounts for FDM GUI accesses. This is a known limitation and as a result it would mean that all the admins will use the same admin account to log into the FTD. Of course this would lead to share the admin account credentials between the admins which could potentially breach our security.

Privilege Level 15 with Cisco ISE

In this post, I’m going to show you how to assign privilege level 15 with Cisco ISE through RADIUS. We know Cisco ISE amazingly supports network devices administration through TACACS+ protocol which allows granting different access levels and managing what command sets could be run in each level. However, this feature requires an additional license called Device Administration to be installed on ISE.
