RADIUS Authentication Overview
This article gives a technical overview of the RADIUS authentication service.
RADIUS is a network protocol used to provide authentication, authorization and accounting services for network devices such as wireless and VPN clients.
If you have a service that for some reason needs to use the IT Services RADIUS servers directly, please contact the IT Services Service Desk as that will require agreement and coordination with IT Services.
