Increase the security of the local network of the institution by implementing device authentication
The work is devoted to the problems of security implementation in local area networks (LAN) of the scientific institution within the framework of the project of deployment of new segments, including wireless Wi–Fi network. The presented work reflects the main results obtained by the authors in solving security problems in the deployment of LAN of Dorodnicyn Computing Center FRC CSC of RAS. From a huge list accumulated to date standards, methods and protocols to ensure network security technologies, the paper presents one of the solutions to the problems on the authentication of devices, including binding new plug-in segments and elements to an existing LAN companies. The solution is based on the IEEE 802.1x standard. The main means of this technology are EAP (Extendable Authentication Protocol) and RADIUS server (Remote Authentication in Dial-In User Service) - a Protocol for authentication, authorization and collection of information about the used resources between the Central platform and the equipment.
