NSE 6 - FortiAuthenticator (FORTIAUTHENTICATOR)

 

Course Overview

In this two-day class, you will learn how to use FortiAuthenticator for secure authentication and identity management. You will learn how to configure and deploy FortiAutheticator, use FortiAuthenticator for certificate management and two-factor authentication, authenticate users using LDAP and RADIUS servers, and explore SAML SSO and how FortiAuthenticator can act as both a SAML identity provider and service provider. Finally, you will examine some helpful troubleshooting techniques.

In interactive labs, you will explore how to authenticate users, with FortiAuthenticator acting as a RADIUS and LDAP server, a certificate authority (CA), and logon event collector that uses—and extends—the Fortinet Single Sign-On (FSSO) framework to transparently authenticate users. You will explore portal services, FortiTokens, and digital certificates.

This course is part of the preparation for the NSE 6 certification exam
