Connecting Tacacs+


TACACS (Terminal Access Controller Access Control System) is a security protocol that provides centralized validation of users who are attempting to gain access to a router or NAS

TACACS+ is a protocol for AAA services:

  • Authentication
  • Authorization
  • Accounting

Register Tacas+

1. Open the Identity & Service Provider page.

Main Menu > Administration > Configure Soffid > Web SSO > Identity & Service providers

2. To add a new service provider, click on the Add Service Provider button.

Be in mind that you can configure more than one Entity Group and you could add new service providers in each one.

3. Then you must fill in the required fields. Also, you need to provide the identity provider metadata. You can either copy it from the Soffid federation page or instruct the service provider to download the federation metadata by itself.


For more information about the attributes, you can visit the Tacacs+ detailed info.

When a Tacacs Service Provider is created, Soffid creates an Information System


There are some roles defined for this Information System (0: anonymous, 1: user, ....15: root)
