Authentication and Access Control

  • Configure client information to connect to the JIMS server (cSRX, SRX300, SRX340, SRX345, SRX1500, SRX4100, SRX4200, SRX4600, SRX5400, SRX5600, SRX5800, and vSRX)—Starting with Junos OS Release 21.1R1, you can configure which specifc interface, source IP address or routing instance SRX should use for connecting to a JIMS server.

    [See Configuring the Connection to an SRX Series Device.]

  • 802.1X authentication on trunk ports (QFX5100 switches)—Starting in Junos OS Release 21.1R1, you can enable 802.1X authentication on trunk ports on QFX5100 switches. Authentication on the trunk port is supported only in single supplicant and single-secure supplicant modes.

    [See 802.1X Authentication.]

  • FQDN support in RADIUS configuration (EX2300, EX3400, EX4300, and EX4300-48P switches)—Starting in Junos OS Release 21.1R1, RADIUS server configuration supports fully qualified domain names (FQDNs) that resolve to one or more IP addresses. This feature can be used in a cloud-managed architecture where the server name could translate to more than one IP address. RADIUS requests can be distributed across multiple servers without explicitly configuring each server IP address. Load distribution can be achieved by configuring the round-robin algorithm at the [edit access profile profile-name radius options] hierarchy level.

    [See Specifying RADIUS Server Connections on Switches.]

  • LLDP support in Layer 3 mode (vSRX 3.0)—Starting in Junos OS Release 21.1R1, vSRX 3.0 in Layer 3 mode supports Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) to learn and distribute device information on network links. The device information enables the vSRX 3.0 to identify a variety of devices quickly. This quick identification results in a LAN that interoperates smoothly and efficiently.
