AAA authorization is the process of assembling a set of attributes that describe what the user is authorized to perform. Authorization in Nexus 5000 Series switches is provided by attributes that are downloaded from AAA servers. Remote security servers, such as RADIUS and TACACS+, authorize users for specific rights by associating attribute-value (AV) pairs, which define those rights with the appropriate user.
