I am new to this.

Can anyone provide me with some basic info??
Also is this different to VPN or an addition to VPN??

Maybe also a network diagram of how this could be implemented in a company's network??

Any info welcome and appreciated.

Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS)

by robo_dev In reply to RADIUS Server info

Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting

Radius is just a reasonably secure way to authenticate remote users. It was originally developed for dial-in users, but is commonly used for VPN and even Wireless LAN authentication.

Radius is not a VPN, as it has nothing to do with transport. It is commonly used by VPN servers for authentication.

From a network perspective, a RADIUS server would typically sit inside the network on the same segment where it was needed...e.g. for the VPN server or for the Wireless LAN users.
