FortiAuthenticator

Course Description

In this two-day class, students will learn how to use FortiAuthenticator 5.4 for secure authentication and identity management. Students will learn how to configure and deploy FortiAutheticator, use FortiAuthenticator for certificate management and two-factor authentication, as well as authenticate users using LDAP and RADIUS servers. Finally, students 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.
