Directory Services and AAA Modules

IT administrators and service providers rely on authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) and directory services to manage user access to networked devices and applications. Not only do these technologies make administration dramatically more efficient, they also enable organizations to secure access to data and track user activity for auditing and billing purposes. In most cases, the performance and availability of these directory services and authentication is absolutely essential to business operations.

The ExtraHop platform provides continuous, real-time visibility into the performance of directory services and authentication, including information that is unavailable to other tools and not included in log files. With detailed performance metrics for LDAP, RADIUS, and Diameter transactions, including specific messages and errors, IT teams can more efficiently troubleshoot authentication and directory services issues as well as receive early warning about issues before they impact users.

ExtraHop LDAP Module

Monitor Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) transactions in real time to verify third-party directory-services performance, support single sign-on (SSO) rollouts, and troubleshoot slow user authentication and sign-on.

ExtraHop RADIUS Module

Support seamless access to wireline and wireless service-provider networks with real-time analysis of RADIUS transactions.

ExtraHop Diameter Module

Support Long Term Evolution (LTE) and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) rollouts and ensure optimum performance of next-generation authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) systems by monitoring Diameter transactions in real time.
