Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting Commands on Cisco IOS XR Software
aaa accounting
Use the aaa accounting command to create default or named method lists defining specific accounting
methods and that can be used on a per-line or per-interface basis. You can specify up to four methods in
the method list. The list name can be applied to a line (console, aux, or vty template) to enable
accounting on that particular line.
The Cisco IOS XR software supports both TACACS+ and RADIUS methods for accounting. The router
reports user activity to the security server in the form of accounting records, which are stored on the
security server.
Method lists for accounting define the way accounting is performed, enabling you to designate a
particular security protocol to be used on specific lines or interfaces for particular types of accounting
services.
For minimal accounting, include the stop-only keyword to send a “stop accounting” notice after the
requested user process. For more accounting, you can include the start-stop keyword, so that TACACS+
or RADIUS sends a “start accounting” notice at the beginning of the requested process and a “stop
accounting” notice after the process. The accounting record is stored only on the TACACS+ or RADIUS
server.
The requested user process begins regardless of whether the “start accounting” notice was received by
the accounting server.

Use the aaa authentication command to create a series of authentication methods, or method list. You
can specify up to four methods in the method list. A method list is a named list describing the
authentication methods to be used (such as TACACS+ or RADIUS) in sequence. The subsequent
methods of authentication are used only if the initial method is not available, not if it fails.
The default method list is applied for all interfaces for authentication, except when a different named
method list is explicitly specified—in which case the explicitly specified method list overrides the
default list.
For console and vty access, if no authentication is configured, a default of local method is applied.

Cisco IOS XR System Security Command Reference
SR-9
Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting Commands on Cisco IOS XR Software
aaa authorization
Use the aaa authorization command to create method lists defining specific authorization methods that
can be used on a per-line or per-interface basis. You can specify up to four methods in the method list.
Note
The command authorization mentioned here applies to the one performed by an external AAA server and
not for task-based authorization.
Method lists for authorization define the ways authorization will be performed and the sequence in which
these methods will be performed. A method list is a named list describing the authorization methods to
be used (such as TACACS+), in sequence. Method lists enable you to designate one or more security
protocols to be used for authorization, thus ensuring a backup system in case the initial method fails.
Cisco IOS XR software uses the first method listed to authorize users for specific network services; if
that method fails to respond, Cisco IOS XR software selects the next method listed in the method list.
This process continues until there is successful communication with a listed authorization method or
until all methods defined have been exhausted.
Note
Cisco IOS XR software attempts authorization with the next listed method only when there is no
response (not a failure) from the previous method. If authorization fails at any point in this
cycle—meaning that the security server or local username database responds by denying the user
services—the authorization process stops and no other authorization methods are attempted.
The Cisco IOS XR software supports the following methods for authorization:
•
none—The router does not request authorization information; authorization is not performed over
this line or interface.
•
local—Use local database for authorization.
•
group tacacs+—Use the list of all configured TACACS+ servers for authorization.
•
group radius—Use the list of all configured RADIUS servers for authorization.
•
group group-name—Uses a named subset of TACACS+ or RADIUS servers for authorization.
Method lists are specific to the type of authorization being requested. The Cisco IOS XR software
supports three types of AAA authorization:
•
Note
Commands authorization: Applies to the EXEC mode commands a user issues. Command
authorization attempts authorization for all EXEC mode commands.
“Command” authorization is distinct from “task-based” authorization, which is based on the task profile
established during authentication.
•
EXEC authorization: Applies authorization for starting an EXEC session.
•
Network authorization: Applies authorization for network services, such as IKE.
When you create a named method list, you are defining a particular list of authorization methods for the
indicated authorization type. When defined, method lists must be applied to specific lines or interfaces
before any of the defined methods are performed.

Character string used to name the group of servers.
To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper
task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on
Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.
Use the aaa group server radius command to group existing server hosts, which allows you to select a
subset of the configured server hosts and use them for a particular service. A server group is used in
conjunction with a global server-host list. The server group lists the IP addresses or hostnames of the
selected server hosts.
Server groups can also include multiple host entries for the same server, as long as each entry has a
unique identifier. The combination of an IP address and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port number
creates a unique identifier, allowing different ports to individually defined as RADIUS hosts providing
a specific authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) service. In other words, this unique
identifier enables RADIUS requests to be sent to different UDP ports on a server at the same IP address.
If two different host entries on the same RADIUS server are configured for the same service, for
example, accounting, the second host entry acts as a failover backup to the first host entry. Using this
example, if the first host entry fails to provide accounting services, the network access server will try the
second host entry on the same device for accounting services. The RADIUS host entries are tried in the
order in which they are configured in the server group.
All members of a server group must be the same type, that is, RADIUS.
The server group cannot be named radius or tacacs.
This command enters server group configuration mode. You can use the server command to associate a
particular RADIUS server with the defined server group.

Name of the user group from which permissions are to be inherited.
To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper
task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on
Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.
Each user group is associated with a set of task groups applicable to the users in that group. A task group
is defined by a collection of task IDs. Task groups contain task ID lists for each class of action. The task
permissions for a user are derived (at the start of the EXEC or XML session) from the task groups
associated with the user groups to which that user belongs.
User groups support inheritance from other user groups. Use the inherit usergroup command to copy
permissions (task ID attributes) from one user group to another user group. The “destination” user group
inherits the properties of the inherited group and forms a union of all task IDs specified in those groups.
For example, when user group A inherits user group B, the task map of the user group A is a union of
that of A and B. Cyclic inclusions are detected and rejected. User groups cannot inherit properties from
predefined groups, such as root-system users, root-sdr users, netadmin users, and so on. Any changes
made to the usergroup from which it is inherited are reflected immediately in the group from which it is
inherited.

Syntax Description
hostname
Domain Name System (DNS) name of the RADIUS server host.
ip-address
IP address of the RADIUS server host.
auth-port port-number (Optional) Specifies the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) destination port for
authentication requests; the host is not used for authentication if set to 0. If
unspecified, the port number defaults to 1645.
acct-port port-number
(Optional) Specifies the UDP destination port for accounting requests; the
host is not used for accounting if set to 0. If unspecified, the port number
defaults to 1646.
timeout seconds
(Optional) The time interval (in seconds) that the router waits for the
RADIUS server to reply before retransmitting. This setting overrides the
global value of the radius-server timeout command. If no timeout value is
specified, the global value is used. Enter a value in the range from 1 to 1000.
Default is 5.
retransmit retries
(Optional) The number of times a RADIUS request is re-sent to a server, if
that server is not responding or responding slowly. This setting overrides the
global setting of the radius-server retransmit command. If no retransmit
value is specified, the global value is used. Enter a value in the range from 1
to 100. Default is 3.
key string
(Optional) Specifies the authentication and encryption key used between the
router and the RADIUS server. This key overrides the global setting of the
radius-server key command. If no key string is specified, the global value
is used.
The key is a text string that must match the encryption key used on the
RADIUS server. Always configure the key as the last item in the
radius-server host command syntax. This is because the leading spaces are
ignored, but spaces within and at the end of the key are used. If you use
spaces in the key, do not enclose the key in quotation marks unless the
quotation marks themselves are part of the key.

The following example shows how to establish host1 as the RADIUS server and use default ports for
both accounting and authentication:
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# configure
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# radius-server host host1
The following example shows how to establish port 1612 as the destination port for authentication
requests and port 1616 as the destination port for accounting requests on the RADIUS host named host1:
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# configure
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# radius-server host host1 auth-port 1612 acct-port 1616
Because entering a line resets all the port numbers, you must specify a host and configure accounting
and authentication ports on a single line.
The following example shows how to establish the host with IP address 172.29.39.46 as the RADIUS
server, use ports 1612 and 1616 as the authorization and accounting ports, set the timeout value to 6, set
the retransmit value to 5, and set “rad123” as the encryption key, matching the key on the RADIUS
server:
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# configure
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# radius-server host 172.29.39.46 auth-port 1612 acct-port
1616 timeout 6 retransmit 5 key rad123
To use separate servers for accounting and authentication, use the zero port value as appropriate.

Usage Guidelines
Name of the interface that RADIUS uses for all of its outgoing packets.
To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper
task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on
Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.
Use the radius source-interface command to set the IP address of the specified interface or subinterface
for all outgoing RADIUS packets. This address is used as long as the interface or subinterface is in the
up state. In this way, the RADIUS server can use one IP address entry for every network access client
instead of maintaining a list of IP addresses.
The specified interface or subinterface must have an IP address associated with it. If the specified
interface or subinterface does not have an IP address or is in the down state, then RADIUS reverts to the
default. To avoid this, add an IP address to the interface or subinterface or bring the interface to the up
state.
The radius source-interface command is especially useful in cases in which the router has many
interfaces or subinterfaces and you want to ensure that all RADIUS packets from a particular router have
the same IP address.

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper
task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on
Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.
You can specify one of two types of secure secrets: encrypted or clear text.
When an EXEC process is started on a line that has password protection, the process prompts for the
secret. If the user enters the correct secret, the process issues the prompt. The user can try three times to
enter a secret before the process exits and returns the terminal to the idle state.
Secrets are one-way encrypted and should be used for applications such as login that do not need a
decryptable secret.

hostname
Character string used to name the server host.
ip-address
IP address of the RADIUS server host.
auth-port port-number (Optional) Specifies the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) destination port for
authentication requests. The port-number argument specifies the port
number for authentication requests. The host is not used for authentication
if this value is set to 0. Default is 1645.
acct-port port-number
Defaults
(Optional) Specifies the UDP destination port for accounting requests. The
port-number argument specifies the port number for accounting requests.
The host is not used for accounting services if this value is set to 0. Default
is 1646.

Use the server command to associate a particular RADIUS server with a defined server group.
There are two different ways in which you can identify a server, depending on the way you want to offer
AAA services. You can identify the server simply by using its IP address, or you can identify multiple
host instances or entries using the optional auth-port and acct-port keywords.
Cisco IOS XR System Security Command Reference
SR-52
Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting Commands on Cisco IOS XR Software
server (RADIUS)
When you use the optional keywords, the network access server identifies RADIUS security servers and
host instances associated with a group server based on their IP address and specific UDP port numbers.
The combination of the IP address and UDP port number creates a unique identifier, allowing different
ports to be individually defined as RADIUS host entries providing a specific AAA service. If two
different host entries on the same RADIUS server are configured for the same service, for example,
accounting, the second host entry configured acts as failover backup to the first one. Using this example,
if the first host entry fails to provide accounting services, the network access server will try the second
host entry configured on the same device for accounting services. (The RADIUS host entries are tried in
the order they are configured.)

tacacs-server host
tacacs-server host
To specify a TACACS+ host server, use the tacacs-server host command in global configuration mode.
To delete the specified name or address, use the no form of this command.
tacacs-server host host-name [port port-number] [timeout seconds] [key [0 | 7] auth-key]
single-connection
no tacacs-server host host-name [port port-number]
Syntax Description
host-name
Name or IP address of the TACACS+ server.
port port-number
(Optional) Specifies a server port number. This option overrides the default,
which is port 49. Valid port numbers range from 1 to 65535.
timeout seconds
(Optional) Specifies a timeout value that sets the length of time the authentication,
authorization, and accounting (AAA) server waits to receive a response from the
TACACS+ server. This option overrides the global timeout value set with the
tacacs-server timeout command for this server only. The valid timeout range is
from 1 to 1000 seconds. Default is 5.
key [0 | 7] auth-key (Optional) Specifies an authentication and encryption key shared between the
AAA server and the TACACS+ server. The TACACS+ packets are encrypted
using this key. This key must match the key used by the TACACS+ daemon.
Specifying this key overrides the key set by the tacacs-server key command for
this server only.
(Optional) Entering 0 specifies that an unencrypted (clear-text) key follows.
(Optional) Entering 7 specifies that an encrypted key follows.
The auth-key argument specifies the unencrypted key to be used between the AAA
server and the TACACS+ server.
single-connection (Optional) Multiplexes all TACACS+ requests to this server over a single TCP
connection. By default, a separate connection is used for each session.
Defaults
No TACACS+ host is specified.
The port keyword, if not specified, defaults to the standard port 49.
The timeout keyword, if not specified, defaults to 5 seconds.

tacacs-server host
Usage Guidelines
To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper
task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on
Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.
The key keyword must be entered last because it uses a line (text with breaks) rather than a string (text
only, with no breaks). Any text and line breaks up to the time the user presses Enter can be used as part
of the key.
You can use multiple tacacs-server host commands to specify additional hosts. Cisco IOS XR software
searches for hosts in the order in which you specify them.

Usage Guidelines
Name of the key used to set authentication and encryption. This key name must match
the key used on the TACACS+ daemon. This key name applies to all servers that have
no individual keys specified.
To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper
task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on
Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.
The key name entered must match the key used on the TACACS+ daemon. All leading spaces are
ignored; spaces within and after the key are not. If you use spaces in your key, do not enclose the key in
quotation marks unless the quotation marks themselves are part of the key.
The TACACS server key is used only if no key is configured for an individual TACACS server. Keys
configured for an individual TACACS server always override this global key configuration.

tacacs source-interface
Usage Guidelines
To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper
task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on
Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.
Use the tacacs source-interface command to set the IP address of the specified interface for all outgoing
TACACS+ packets. This address is used as long as the interface is in the up state. In this way, the
TACACS+ server can use one IP address entry associated with the network access client instead of
maintaining a list of all IP addresses.
This command is especially useful in cases where the router has many interfaces and you want to ensure
that all TACACS+ packets from a particular router have the same IP address.
When the specified interface does not have an IP address or is in a down state, TACACS+ behaves as if
no source interface configuration is used.

Usage Guidelines
To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper
task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on
Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.
Use the username command to identify the user and enter username configuration mode. Password and
user group assignments can be made from either global configuration mode or username configuration
submode. Permissions (task IDs) are assigned by associating the user with one or more defined user
groups.

username
From global configuration mode, you can display all the configured usernames. However, you cannot
display all the configured usernames in username configuration mode.
Each user is identified by a username that is unique across the administrative domain. Each user should
be made a member of at least one user group. Deleting a user group may orphan the users associated
with that group. The AAA server authenticates orphaned users but most commands are not authorized.
If you want to require a username and password on the console or for Telnet sessions, configure
authentication using both the aaa authentication login default local command and the username
command.
The predefined group root-system may be specified only by root-system users while administration is
configured.
Note
Task ID
Examples
To enable the local networking device to respond to remote CHAP challenges, one username command
entry must be the same as the hostname entry that has already been assigned to the other networking
device.
