Overview

Cisco ISE supports protocol standards like RADIUS, its associated RFC Standards, and TACACS+. For more information, see the ISE Community Resources.

Cisco ISE supports interoperability with any Cisco or non-Cisco RADIUS client network access device (NAD) that implements common RADIUS behavior for standards-based authentication.

Cisco ISE interoperates fully with third-party TACACS+ client devices that adhere to the governing protocols. Support for TACACS+ functions depends on the device-specific implementation.

RADIUS

Cisco ISE interoperates fully with third-party RADIUS devices that adhere to the standard protocols. Support for RADIUS functions depends on the device-specific implementation.

Certain advanced use cases, such as those that involve posture assessment, profiling, and web authentication, are not consistently available with non-Cisco devices or may provide limited functionality. We recommend that you validate all network devices and their software for hardware capabilities or bugs in a particular software release.

If the network device does not support both dynamic and static URL redirects, Cisco ISE provides an Auth VLAN configuration by which URL redirect is simulated. For more information, see "Third-Party Network Device Support in Cisco ISE" section in Chapter "Secure Wired Access" in the Cisco Identity Services Engine Administrator Guide.

TACACS+

Cisco ISE interoperates fully with third-party TACACS+ client devices that adhere to the governing protocols. Support for TACACS+ functions depends on the device-specific implementation.

For information on enabling specific functions of Cisco ISE on network switches, see the “Switch and Wireless LAN Controller Configuration Required to Support Cisco ISE Functions” chapter in Cisco Identity Services Engine Administrator Guide.

For information about third-party NAD profiles, see ISE Third-Party NAD Profiles and Configs.

For information on how to configure TACACS+ for Nexus devices, see Cisco ISE Device Administration Prescriptive Deployment Guide.


Note

  • Some switch models and IOS versions may have reached the end-of-life date and interoperability may not be supported by Cisco TAC.

  • You must use the latest version of NetFlow for the Cisco ISE profiling service. If you use NetFlow Version 5, you can use it only on the primary NAD at the access layer.


For Wireless LAN Controllers, note the following:

  • MAC authentication bypass (MAB) supports MAC filtering with RADIUS lookup.

  • Support for session ID and COA with MAC filtering provides MAB-like functionality.

  • DNS-based ACL feature is supported for WLC 8.0 and above. Not all Access Points support DNS-based ACL. See the Cisco Access Points Release Notes for more details.

For information about the devices that are validated with Cisco ISE, see Network Device Capabilities Validated with Cisco Identity Services Engine.

Supported Protocol Standards, RFCs, and IETF Drafts

Cisco ISE conforms to the following protocol standards, Requests for Comments (RFCs), and IETF drafts:

AAA Attributes for RADIUS Proxy Service

For RADIUS proxy service, the following authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) attributes must be included in the RADIUS communication:

  • Calling-Station-ID (IP or MAC_ADDRESS)

  • RADIUS::NAS_IP_Address

  • RADIUS::NAS_Identifier

AAA Attributes for Third-Party VPN Concentrators

For VPN concentrators to integrate with Cisco ISE, the following authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) attributes should be included in the RADIUS communication:

  • Calling-Station-ID (tracks individual client by MAC or IP address)

  • User-Name (tracks remote client by login name)

  • NAS-Port-Type (helps to determine connection type as VPN)

  • RADIUS Accounting Start (triggers official start of session)

  • RADIUS Accounting Stop (triggers official end of session and releases ISE license)

  • RADIUS Accounting Interim Update on IP address change (for example, SSL VPN connection transitions from Web-based to a full-tunnel client)


Note

For VPN devices, the RADIUS Accounting messages must have the Framed-IP-Address attribute set to the client’s VPN-assigned IP address to track the endpoint while on a trusted network.

Supported Ciphers

In a clean or fresh install of Cisco ISE, SHA1 ciphers are disabled by default. However, if you upgrade from an existing version of Cisco ISE, the SHA1 ciphers retain the options from the earlier version. You can view and change the SHA1 ciphers settings using the Allow SHA1 Ciphers field (Administration > System > Settings > Security Settings).


Note

This does not apply to the Admin portal. When running in Federal Information Processing Standard Mode (FIPS), an upgrade does not remove SHA1 ciphers from the Admin portal.


Cisco ISE supports TLS versions 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2.

Cisco ISE supports RSA and ECDSA server certificates. The following elliptic curves are supported:

  • secp256r1

  • secp384r1

  • secp521r1


Note

Cisco ISE does not support intermediate certificates having SHA256withECDSA signature algorithm for any of the elliptical curves due to the limitations in the current implementation of OpenJDK 1.8.


The following table lists the supported Cipher Suites:

Validated Client Machine Operating Systems, Supplicants, and Agents

This section lists the validated client machine operating systems, browsers, and agent versions for each client machine type. For all devices, you must also have cookies enabled in the web browser. Cisco AnyConnect-ISE Posture Support Charts are available at: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/security/identity-services-engine/products-device-support-tables-list.html

The following client machine types have been validated for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Posture workflows:

  • Apple iOS

  • Apple macOS

  • Google Android

  • Google Chromebook

  • Linux

  • Microsoft Windows

Cisco ISE, Release 2.3 and later support only the Cisco AnyConnect and Cisco Temporal Agents.

All standard 802.1X supplicants can be used with Cisco ISE, Release 2.4 and above standard and advanced features as long as they support the standard authentication protocols supported by Cisco ISE. For the VLAN change authorization feature to work in a wireless deployment, the supplicant must support IP address refresh on VLAN change.

Posture and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) flows are supported by the General Availability releases of the operating systems that are listed in the Cisco ISE UI, based on the latest Posture Feed Update. The Posture and BYOD flows may also work in the Beta macOS releases that are listed in the Cisco ISE UI. For example, if macOS 12 Beta (all) is listed in the Cisco ISE UI, Posture and BYOD flows may work on macOS 12 Beta endpoints. Support is provided on a best-effort basis as beta operating system releases often undergo significant changes between the initial and General Availability releases.

Note that when you update your Operating System (OS) to a new version, you may experience a delay (of a few hours or a day) in support and refection of the updated OS version in the Posture Feed Server.

Apple iOS

This client machine type has been validated for BYOD and posture workflows.

While Apple iOS devices use Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP) with Cisco ISE or 802.1x, the public certificate includes a CRL distribution point that the iOS device needs to verify but it cannot do it without network access. Click “confirm/accept” on the iOS device to authenticate to the network.

The following Apple iOS versions have been validated with Cisco ISE:

  • Apple iOS 16.x

  • Apple iOS 15.x

  • Apple iOS 14.x

  • Apple iOS 13.x

  • Apple iOS 12.x

  • Apple iOS 11.x


Note

  • If you are using Apple iOS 12.2 or later version, you must manually install the downloaded Certificate/Profile. To do this, choose Settings > General > Profile in the Apple iOS device and Click Install.

  • If you are using Apple iOS 12.2 or later version, RSA key size must be 2048 bits or higher. Otherwise, you might see an error while installing the BYOD profile.

  • If you are using Apple iOS 13 or a later version, regenerate the self-signed certificate for portal role by adding the <<FQDN>> as DNS Name in the SAN field.

  • If you are using Apple iOS 13 or a later version, ensure that SHA-256 (or greater) is selected as the signature algorithm.


Apple macOS

This client machine type has been validated for BYOD and posture workflows.

Cisco ISE does work with earlier release of AnyConnect 4.x. However, only newer AnyConnect releases support newer features.


Note

For Apple macOS 11, you must use Cisco AnyConnect 4.9.04043 or above and MAC OSX compliance module 4.3.1466.4353 or above.


If you are using Apple macOS 11, you might see a prompt to install the profiles manually when you are installing the Cisco Network Setup Assistant. In this case, you must do the following:

  1. Navigate to the Downloads folder.

  2. Double-click the cisco802dot1xconfiguration.mobileconfig file.

  3. Choose System > Preferences.

  4. Click Profiles.

  5. Install the profiles.

  6. Click OK in the prompt that is displayed in the Cisco Network Setup Assistant to proceed with installation.


Note

The Supplicant Provisioning Wizard bundle for MAC OSX version 3.1.0.1 is common for all Cisco ISE releases. It has been verified with Cisco ISE 2.4 patch 12, Cisco ISE 2.6 patch 8, Cisco ISE 2.7 patch 3, and Cisco ISE 3.0 patch 2.


For information about the Windows and MAC OSX anti-malware, patch management, disk encryption, and firewall products that are supported by the Cisco ISE Posture Agent, see the Cisco AnyConnect-ISE Posture Support Charts.


Note

  • All browsers have capped the reported Apple macOS version to 10.15.7 and increased user privacy.

  • During provisioning we won’t be able to identify Apple macOS 11 endpoints. This leads to an issue with CP policy matching in Posture and BYOD flows when client is running Apple macOS 11. As a workaround, proceed with Posture and BYOD flows for Apple macOS 11 as Map CP policy as macOS All.

  • During classification we won’t be able to identify Apple macOS 11 endpoints. This leads to an issue with profiling policy matching when client is running Apple macOS 11.


From Cisco ISE Release 3.0, you can use the Agentless Posture feature with all the supported Apple macOS releases. See the topic "Agentless Posture" in the Chapter "Compliance" in the Cisco ISE Administrators Guide for your Cisco ISE release.

Google Android

This client machine type has been validated for BYOD and posture workflows.

Cisco ISE may not support certain Android OS version and device combinations due to the open access-nature of Android implementation on certain devices.

The following Google Android versions have been validated with Cisco ISE:

  • Google Android 12.x

  • Google Android 11.x

  • Google Android 10.x

  • Google Android 9.x

  • Google Android 8.x

  • Google Android 7.x

Ensure that the Location service is enabled on the Android 9.x and 10.x devices before starting the supplicant provisioning wizard (SPW).

Android no longer uses Common Name (CN). The Hostname must be in the subjectAltName (SAN) extension, or trust fails.If you are using self-signed certificates, regenerate Cisco ISE self-signed certificate by selecting Domain Name or IP Address option from the SAN drop-down list for Portals. To view this window, click the Menu icon () and choose Administration > System > Certificates > System Certificates.

If you are using Android 9.x, you must update the posture feed in Cisco ISE to get the NSA for Android 9.

Google Chromebook

This client machine type has been validated for BYOD and posture workflows.

Google Chromebook is a managed device and does not support the Posture service. See the Cisco Identity Services Engine Administration Guide for more information.

Note

From Cisco ISE Release 3.1, all pxGrid connections must be based on pxGrid 2.0. pxGrid 1.0-based (XMPP-based) integrations will cease to work on Cisco ISE from Release 3.1 onwards.

pxGrid Version 2.0, which is based on WebSockets, was introduced in Cisco ISE Release 2.4. We recommend that you plan and upgrade your other systems to pxGrid 2.0-compliant versions in order to prevent potential disruptions, if any, to integrations.
