RADIUS Servers

FortiDeceptor supports remote authentication of administrators using RADIUS servers. To use this feature, configure the server entries in FortiDeceptor for each authentication server in your network.

If you have configured RADIUS support and require users to authenticate using a RADIUS server, FortiDeceptor contacts the RADIUS server for authentication. To authenticate with FortiDeceptor, the user enters a user name and password. FortiDeceptor sends this user name and password to the RADIUS server. If the RADIUS server can authenticate the user, FortiDeceptor authenticates the user. If the RADIUS server cannot authenticate the user, FortiDeceptor refuses the connection.
