Authentication on an IDSM-2?

I have a requirement to have Authentication on our network devices using RSA Secure tokens or restrict it's mgmt interface from the network.

So far I am using AAA through the ACS to accomplish this but I can find nothing about AAA for the IDSM-2.

Does AAA exist for the IDSM-2 or does anyone have another suggestion for said devices?


(Current HW setup. Will be upgrading to 720's soon but my security deadline is looming sooner.)

Re: Authentication on an IDSM-2?

The IDSM-2 does not do AAA authentication. THe accounts are stored locally, with a certain role. In order to do AAA authenticaiton you would have to authenticate to the switch, authenticate with AAA, then session into the IDSM-2 and authenticate with the local username and password.
