Authentication Policy Overview


Authentication policies are linked to the type of user account being verified, or to the primary method of authentication. The default authentication methods for SBR Carrier include:

  • A native user (listed in, and a user of, the SBR Carrier software)

  • A UNIX account holder

  • A member of an authorized UNIX group

You can set up other user types, or primary authentication methods, to support other authenticators, such as different forms of LDAP clients, SQL clients, SIMAuth, and others. The initial defaults for a particular system are configured during installation, by the configuration script. EAP authentication methods can be used in conjunction with these authentication methods to form the authentication policy. Configuration of the EAP authentication methods supported by SBR Carrier is detailed in Setting Up EAP Methods.
