Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA)

In this article we will discuss Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA), will make brief discussion on Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA), In last article we discuss about Backup, Upgrade, Update, and Patch – Network Security.

Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service is a networking protocol, operating on port 1812 that provides centralized Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting management for users who connect and use a network services.

Authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA, or “triple A”) network security services provide the primary framework to set up access control on a network device. For example, Diameter uses the URI scheme AAA, which stands for Authentication, Authorization and Accounting, and the Diameter-based Protocol AAA, which stands for Authentication, Authorization and Accounting with Secure Transport.

AAA is a way to control who is permitted to access a network (authenticate), what they can do while they are there (authorize), and what actions they perform while accessing the network (accounting).

The concept of AAA is similar to the use of a credit card. The credit card identifies who can use it, how much that user can spend, and keeps account of what items the user spent money on.
