ACS v. 5.1 Authentication methods

Unanswered Question
Aug 17th, 2012
User Badges:


I hope my question has not been yet asked. But it's so complicated to explain that I don't even know on which keywords to search.

I'd like to define 2 types of users on my ACS:

1- Users who use basic authentication with a password

2- Users who use an external token server.

The issue is that I don't manage to make both work together:

I've created 2 service selection rules and depending on how I order them, the token user can authenticate but not the fix password one and vice versa.

Does someone either have an idea or a clear documentation about how to configure this simple feature on the ACS?

In version 4, this was really easy: 1 group with ext authentication, and one with local DB password.

In version 5, I do not find how to do it.

Thanks a lot!

Are the usernames present in both databases? If not,you can create an identity store sequence ( it will check AD then RSA) but you can set the sequence in any order you like:
