Fix Recommendation

Step 1: Configure the router to use an authentication server as shown in the following example:

RP/0/0/CPU0:R3(config)#radius-server host 10.1.3.16 key xxxxxxxx

Step 2: Configure the authentication order to use the authentication server as primary source for authentication as shown in the following example:

RP/0/0/CPU0:R3(config)#aaa authentication login LOGIN_AUTHENTICATION group radius local

Step 3: Configure all network connections associated with a device management to use an authentication server for the purpose of login authentication as shown in the following example:

RP/0/0/CPU0:R3(config)#line default
RP/0/0/CPU0:R3(config-line)#login authentication LOGIN_AUTHENTICATION
RP/0/0/CPU0:R3(config-line)#exit
RP/0/0/CPU0:R3(config)#line console
RP/0/0/CPU0:R3(config-line)#login authentication LOGIN_AUTHENTICATION

Check Contents

The Cisco router is not compliant with this requirement. However, the risk associated with this requirement can be fully mitigated if the router is configured to utilize an authentication server to authenticate and authorize users for administrative access.

Review the router configuration to verify that the device is configured to use an authentication server as primary source for authentication as shown in the following example:

radius-server host 10.1.3.16 auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646
key xxxxxxxxxx



aaa authentication login LOGIN_AUTHENTICATION group radius local
line console
login authentication LOGIN_AUTHENTICATION
!
line default
login authentication LOGIN_AUTHENTICATION
transport input ssh

If the router is not configured to use an authentication server to authenticate and authorize users for administrative access, this is a finding.
