Switch/Router can only use PAP to communicate with IAS

Unanswered Question
Nov 15th, 2009

I was securing my switches to allow users to login using radius and notice that I have to set the IAS server to PAP for the Cisco equipment to authenticate. Is there an alternative to this since PAP is clear text.

[ PC ]__SSH__[Switch]___PAP___[ IAS ]

I have this problem too.

When using SSH to the switch for switch based authentication you need to

enable PAP on the Radius policy.

Telnet/SSH work on PAP only.
