About 802.1x port authentication using TACACS+

Unanswered Question
Jan 20th, 2009


I have some question. Please help me. Thanks.

Question1. May I use that 802.1x port authentication using TACACS+

Question2. Is it true? TACACS+ will not work with 802.1x because EAP is not supported in TACACS+, and there are no plans to get EAP over TACACS+.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I have this problem too.

- If you want to use 802.1x port authentication, it is better to use radius protocol because Tacacs+ doesn't support EAP.

- The command line when you use radius protocol is the same as the tacacs+ protocol

Thanks to you.

Where to find the documents about Tacacs+ doesn't support EAP?

I cast more time and I cannot find the documents.

Please help me....

There's nothing technically precluding this, although RADIUS is typically preferred by most.
