802.1x local authentication configuration on S series switch

35

For S series switches except S1700 switches, in 802.1x local authentication and authorization, user information (including the local user name, password, and attributes) is configured on the switch. 802.1x local authentication and authorization feature fast processing and low operation cost, whereas the amount of information that can be stored is limited by the switch hardware capacity.
Assume that the user connects to GE0/0/1 of the switch and belongs to VLAN 100. In addition, the user uses local authentication and can connect to the network without authorization. Configure 802.1x local authentication as follows:
1. Create VLAN 100, and add interface GE0/0/1 to this VLAN.
[HUAWEI] vlan 100 
[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] port link-type access
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] port default vlan 100 
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] quit
2. Configure the local user and the authentication domain of the user.
[HUAWEI] aaa     
[HUAWEI-aaa] local-user huawei password cipher hello@123
[HUAWEI-aaa] local-user huawei service-type 8021x
[HUAWEI-aaa] authentication-scheme test
[HUAWEI-aaa-authen-test] authentication-mode local
[HUAWEI-aaa-authen-test] quit
[HUAWEI-aaa] authorization-scheme test
[HUAWEI-aaa-author-test] authorization-mode none
[HUAWEI-aaa-author-test] quit
[HUAWEI-aaa] domain default_admin
[HUAWEI-aaa-domain-default_admin] authentication-scheme test
[HUAWEI-aaa-domain-default_admin] authorization-scheme test
3. Enable 802.1x  authentication globally and on a specified interface.
a. Traditional mode (applicable to all versions)
[HUAWEI] undo authentication unified-mode  //Switch to the traditional mode (This configuration applies only to V200R005C00 and later versions.)
[HUAWEI] quit
<HUAWEI> reboot   //This configuration applies only to V200R005C00 and later versions.
[HUAWEI] dot1x enable
[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet0/0/1
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] dot1x enable
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] dot1x authentication-method eap
b. Unified mode (applicable to V200R005C00 and later versions)
[HUAWEI] authentication unified-mode 
[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet0/0/1
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] authentication dot1x
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] authentication mode multi-authen max-user 100

How to configure local 802.1x authentication
In local authentication and authorization, user information including the local user name, password, and attributes is configured on an AR. In this mode, the AR provides fast processing and low operation cost, whereas the amount of information that can be stored is limited by the AR hardware capacity. An example is used here to describe local 802.1x authentication. Assume that a user connects to GE1/0/0 on an AR and belongs to VLAN 100. Local authentication is used, and the user can access the Internet without authorization. 1. Create VLAN 100 and add GE1/0/0 to VLAN 100. [Huawei] vlan batch 100 [Huawei] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/0 [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] port link-type access [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] port default vlan 100 [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] quit 2. Configure a local user, AAA schemes, and AAA domain. [Huawei]aaa [Huawei-aaa] local-user huawei password cipher hello@123 [Huawei-aaa] local-user huawei service-type 8021x [Huawei-aaa] authentication-scheme test [Huawei-aaa-authen-test] authentication-mode local [Huawei-aaa-authen-test] quit [Huawei-aaa] authorization-scheme test [Huawei-aaa-author-test] authorization-mode none [Huawei-aaa-author-test] quit [Huawei-aaa] domain default_admin [Huawei-aaa-domain-default_admin] authentication-scheme test [Huawei-aaa-domain-default_admin] authorization-scheme test 3. Enable 802.1x authentication globally and on an interface. [Huawei] dot1x enable [Huawei] interface gigabitethernet1/0/0 [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/0] dot1x enable

802.1x remote authentication on S series switch
In 802.1x remote authentication and authorization, user information (including the user name, password and attributes) is configured on the remote AAA server. 802.1x remote authentication and authorization feature high network security. S series switches (except S1700 switches) running V200R003C10 or an earlier version supports only traditional NAC configuration. Switches running V200R005C00 or a later version support both traditional and unified NAC configuration. By default, unified NAC configuration is used. 802.1x remote authentication also supports traditional and unified modes. 802.1x remote authentication configuration is the same on all switch models: - For the traditional 802.1x remote authentication configuration, see "Example for Configuring 802.1x Authentication to Control Internal User Access" in "Configuring NAC (Common Mode)" of Typical Configuration Examples. - For the unified 802.1x remote authentication configuration, see "Example for Configuring 802.1x Authentication to Control Internal User Access" in "Configuring NAC (Unified Mode)" of Typical Configuration Examples.
