Use this page to configure settings for authenticating
administrators and end users. The firewall and Panorama support
local, RADIUS, TACACS+, LDAP, Kerberos, SAML 2.0, and multi-factor
authentication (MFA) services.
Create at least one Authentication profile
to provide external authentication, which keeps all authentication
requests in one place for easier management and uses a standard
authentication process that includes services such as tracking.
Best is to create and prioritize (
Authentication profiles using different methods in case of authentication
failure, and to create at least one local login account to fall
back on if all external methods fail.
You can also use this page to register a firewall or Panorama
service (such as administrative access to the web interface) with
a SAML identity provider (IdP). Registering the service enables
the firewall or Panorama to use the IdP for authenticating users
who request the service. You register a service by entering its
SAML metadata on the IdP. The firewall and Panorama make registration
easy by automatically generating a SAML metadata file based on the
authentication profile that you assigned to the service; you can
export this metadata file to the IdP.
