OSC, the developer of world-renown Radiator (R) RADIUS server, has established a free resource for the RADIUS user community to collect and share information about configuring and implementing RADIUS protocol devices and software. RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) is the authentication protocol widely used by ISPs and corporate networks.

RadiusExpert:Community Portal at http://www.open.com.au/wiki/index.php/Main_Page will become the repository for all the information that often resides only in the heads of system administrators who manage and maintain the security access and authentication requirements of their networks.

“We are providing a public collection point for the invaluable knowledge out there that represents the practical how-to of RADIUS implementation,” said Mike McCauley, Chief Technologist from OSC.

Anyone can find information about such topics as configuring various RADIUS devices, load balancing with RADIUS servers and wireless authentication tips in the RadiusExpert:Community Portal and contributions from the user community are encouraged. More
