General Settings

Profile Name

Enter a unique string of alphanumeric characters, colons, periods, dashes, and underscores. Maximum length is 64 characters.

Authentication Order

Order 1

Select one or more of the following authentication method:

  • NONE—No authentication for the specified user.

  • LDAP—Use LDP. The SRX Series device uses this protocol to get user and group information necessary to implement the integrated user firewall feature.

  • Password—Use a locally configured password in the access profile.

    You can set the password to none or configure for the following authentication orders:

    • LDAP

    • Radius servers

    • Secure ID

  • Radius—Use RADIUS authentication services.

    If RADIUS servers fail to respond or return a reject response, try password authentication, because it is explicitly configured in the authentication order.

  • Secure ID—Configure the RSA SecurID authentication.

    Users can enter either static or dynamic passwords as their credentials. A dynamic password is a combination of a user’s PIN and a randomly generated token that is valid for a short period of time, approximately one minute. A static password is configured for the user on the SecurID server. For example, the SecurID server administrator might set a temporary static password for a user who has lost SecurID token.
