This entry in our Cisco ISE blog series expands on the previous entry, Authenticate all the things! Some of the vernacular we established in that entry will be repeated here, but not explained. So, if you haven’t had a chance to read that one yet, go ahead, we’ll wait right here for you! In this entry, we take a closer look at the EAP authentication types we see most commonly deployed as a part of a Wired and Wireless network 802.1X deployment.
By now I’m sure you have heard the new product announcements from Cisco around Software Defined Access (SD-Access). This announcement is a departure from the typical “new box” announcements that we are familiar with from the networking behemoth. Yes, there are new boxes, but this announcement is much more than that - it is the beginning of a new era for networking. Cisco marketing will appreciate me clarifying, that SD-Access is a part of The Network. [pause for dramatic effect] Intuitive. Now, I’ll be the first one to cringe or poke fun at marketing terminology used in IT industry, and this one would seem certainly ripe for the poking. However, based on what I have seen thus far, there is nothing to cringe at here.
