Technical Training Courses
In this 1-day class, you will learn how to use FortiAuthenticator for secure authentication.
In interactive labs, you will explore how to authenticate users, with FortiAuthenticator acting as a RADIUS, LDAP, or 802.1X EAP 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 captive portal guest management, FortiTokens, and digital certificates.
