    Cisco ISE: 5. Adding NAD to ISE

    Technology: Network Security
    Area: Access and Identity Management
    Vendor: Cisco
    Software: 2.1
    Platform: ISE Virtual Appliance, ISE Physical Appliance

    For ISE 3.0 setup, check ISE 3.0 NAD configuration


    When the radius client (switch or wifi controller) wants to talk with radius it needs to be defined as a network access device (NAD) on the radius server (in our case ISE). Otherwise, every authentication try will fail. Before you add NAD to ISE you can define the structure of NAD for better organization. You can define Groups and NAD Locations and Types. These attributes can be used while building Authentication (AuthC) and Authorization (AuthZ) rules. To add a device:


    • Define Type e.g. Wireless

    Adding NAD to ISE - define type


    • Define Location e.g. GrandmetricLabs

    Adding NAD - Define locations


    • Define the device itself and add it to previously configured groups

    adding NAD to ISE - define NAD
