Configure RADIUS Authentication for Panorama Administrators
You can use a RADIUS server to authenticate administrative access to the Panorama web interface. You can also define Vendor-Specific Attributes (VSAs) on the RADIUS server to manage administrator authorization. Using VSAs enables you to quickly change the roles, access domains, and user groups of administrators through your directory service, which is often easier than reconfiguring settings on Panorama.
a RADIUS server profile.The profile defines how Panorama connects to the RADIUS server.
- Select PanoramaServer ProfilesRADIUS and Add a profile.
- Enter a Profile Name to identify the server profile.
- Enter a Timeout interval in
seconds after which an authentication request times out (default
is 3; range is 1–20).If you use the server profile to integrate Panorama with an MFA service, enter an interval that gives administrators enough time to respond to the authentication challenge. For example, if the MFA service prompts for a one-time password (OTP), administrators need time to see the OTP on their endpoint device and then enter the OTP in the MFA login page.
- Select the Authentication Protocol (default
is CHAP) that Panorama uses to authenticate
to the RADIUS server.Select CHAP if the RADIUS server supports that protocol; it is more secure than PAP.
- Add each RADIUS server and
enter the following:
- Name to identify the server
- RADIUS Server IP address or FQDN
- Secret/Confirm Secret (a key to encrypt usernames and passwords)
- Server Port for authentication requests (default is 1812)
- Click OK to save the server profile.
- Assign the RADIUS server profile to an authentication
profile.The authentication profile defines authentication settings that are common to a set of administrators.
- Select PanoramaAuthentication Profile and Add a profile.
- Enter a Name to identify the authentication profile.
- Set the Type to RADIUS.
- Select the Server Profile you configured.
- Select Retrieve user group from RADIUS to
collect user group information from VSAs defined on the RADIUS server.Panorama matches the group information against the groups you specify in the Allow List of the authentication profile.
- Select Advanced and, in the Allow List, Add the administrators that are allowed to authenticate with this authentication profile.
- Click OK to save the authentication profile.
- Configure Panorama to use the authentication profile
for all administrators.
- Select PanoramaSetupManagement and edit the Authentication Settings.
- Select the Authentication Profile you configured and click OK.
- Configure the roles and access domains that define authorization settings for administrators.
- Commit your changes.Select CommitCommit to Panorama and Commit your changes.
- Configure the RADIUS server.Refer to your RADIUS server documentation for the specific instructions to perform these steps:
- Add the Panorama IP address or hostname as the RADIUS client.
- Add the administrator accounts.
- Define the vendor code for Panorama (25461) and define
the RADIUS VSAs for the role, access domain,
and user group of each administrator.For detailed instructions, refer to the following Knowledge Base articles:
- For Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2008 (and later), and Cisco Secure Access Control Server (ACS) 4.0—RADIUS Vendor-Specific Attributes (VSAs)
- For Cisco ACS 5.2—Configuring Cisco ACS 5.2 for use with Palo AltoVSA
- Verify that the RADIUS server performs authentication
and authorization for administrators.
- Log in the Panorama web interface using an administrator account that you added to the RADIUS server.
- Verify that you can access only the web interface pages that are allowed for the role you associated with the administrator.
- In the Monitor, Policies, and Objects tabs, verify that you can access only the device groups that are allowed for the access domain you associated with the administrator.
