802.1X Authentication Features Supported by the NE40E

802.1X Authentication Features Supported by the NE40E

Different authentication modes can be configured for 802.1X authentication.

The NE40E supports the following 802.1X authentication features:

Authentication Mode

  • EAP termination authentication: The NE40E terminates the EAP packets sent from the client, parses user names and passwords, encrypts the passwords, and sends the packets to an AAA server for authentication. EAP termination authentication includes the Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) authentication and Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) authentication.

    • PAP is a two-way handshake authentication protocol that uses plaintext passwords. It has low security.
    • CHAP is a three-way handshake authentication protocol that uses ciphertext passwords, and therefore is more secure than PAP.
  • EAP relay authentication: The NE40E directly encapsulates 802.1X user authentication information and EAP packets into the attribute fields of RADIUS packets, and sends the RADIUS packets to an AAA server.
