I have been tasked with the configuring centralized authentication via IAS for all the IPS/IDS devices in the enterprise. After much invest I'm almost sure that due to limitations inherent to the device my goal is not obtainable. However, I am still not 100% sure. My questions are:
1. Can anyone provide a link or any documentation showing definitively whether or not the IPS 4260 supports IAS/Radius authentication?
a. If not, what would be a suitable alternative? CSM, etc.?
Cisco's IPS sensors do not currently support externally authenticated access. They will only support
local username/password authentication and role assignment.
