What you'll learn

A little History, Before ISE was a product how edge authentication used, Policy based posture, Accessibility of Guest User and web authentication.

Cisco Identity Service Engine(ISE) provides Clustering to form a redundancy for authentication, ISE can be Installed on both hardware Appliances and VMware virtual machines(VMs), certificates, licensing, patching, backups and Active Directory Configuration.

While Designing and implantation Cisco Identity Engine(ISE) uses different type of authentication type, and it is depending on the specific functionality, MAB Authentication and 802.1X authentication.

Policy is defined in Cisco Identity Engine to take out of the Radius request and response it gets from NAD. Authentication, Authorization and Guest Conditions are configured same time.

Cisco Identity Engine(ISE) Basically configured with wired and wireless devices.

Cisco Identity Engine(ISE) Profiling is the process to identify what that device is (Printers, access points, work station, phones), Setting up Profiling, profiling Basics, profiling custom devices.

Portal View, Different way of Guest Portal, Different Guest Type in ISE, Device portal, Different case studies.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Cisco Identity Service Engine (ISE)?

The Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) is an identity-based network access control and policy enforcement system. ISE allows a network administrator to centrally control access policies for wired and wireless endpoints based on information gathered via RADIUS messages passed between the device and the ISE node, also known as profiling. The profiling database is updated on a regular basis to keep up with the latest and greatest devices so there are no gaps in device visibility.

Can I Migrate from ACS to Cisco ISE 2.1?

Yes, you can Migrate from ACS to Cisco ISE 2.1. you need to ensure that you have upgraded to Cisco ISE, Release 2.0 or 2.1, and have installed the latest patches for Cisco Secure ACS, Release 5.5 or 5.6 or 5.7 or 5.8.

If a license file is uploaded only to the primary Administration node will it propagate the license information to the other Cisco ISE nodes on the network?

All nodes in a Cisco ISE deployment use the license applied to the primary Administration node. If the primary node fails, the secondary Administration node is promoted and uses the licenses acquired from the primary Administrative node.

If one needs to change or upgrade the Administration node do you have to buy new licenses?

No. Valid ISE licenses can be re-hosted to the UDI of a new node.

Are NAC and ACS being replaced by ISE?

No, both NAC and ACS have ongoing roadmaps, developments, and new releases planned. If ISE does not meet your customer’s current needs, your customers can still use NAC or ACS. Cisco will not stop innovations on NAC and ACS anytime in the near future.

If I deploy Cisco ISE with primary and secondary Administration nodes, can I have the licenses registered to both nodes?

Yes. The Cisco PAK registration page allows a PAK and the associated license file to be registered to the unique device identifiers (UDIs) of the primary and secondary Administration nodes. The registration of the PAK to the primary Administration node is mandatory; the registration of the secondary Administration node is optional.

What is a UDI?

A UDI is the unique device identifier of each Cisco ISE appliance. The UDI comprises three values: the product ID (PID) or SKU, the version ID (VID), and the serial number.
