Identity-Based Networking Services (IBNS) solution provides a policy and
identity-based framework in which edge devices can deliver flexible and
scalable services to subscribers. IBNS allows the concurrent operation of IEEE
802.1x (dot1x), MAC authentication bypass (MAB), and web authentication
methods, making it possible to invoke multiple authentication methods in
parallel, on a single subscriber session. These authentication methods, dot1x,
authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA), and RADIUS are available
in global configuration and interface configuration modes.
The Auto Identity
feature uses the Cisco Common Classification Policy Language-based
configuration that significantly reduces the number of commands used to
configure both authentication methods and interface-level commands. The Auto
Identity feature provides a set of built-in policies that are based on policy
maps, class maps, parameter maps, and interface templates.
configuration mode, the
command enables the Auto Identity feature. In interface
configuration mode, configure the AI_MONITOR_MODE, AI_LOW_IMPACT_MODE, or
AI_CLOSED_MODE interface templates to enable the feature on interfaces.
You can configure
multiple templates; however, you must bind multiple templates together using
command. If you do not bind the templates, the last
configured template is used. While binding templates, if the same command is
repeated in two templates with different arguments, the last configured command
global commands to display information about
built-in templates. Built-in templates can be edited. Built-in template
information is displayed in the output of the
command, if the template is edited. If you delete an
edited built-in template, the built-in template reverts to the default and is
not deleted from the configuration. However; if you delete a user-defined
template, it is deleted from the configuration.
You can also enable
user-defined templates that are configured using the
command in global configuration mode .
Before you delete
a template, ensure that it is not attached to a device.
