Cisco TACACS (Terminal Access Controller Access Control System) is a security application that provides centralized validation of users attempting to gain access to a router or network access server.
Enabling the Web Interface for the Access Control System
Before configuring the Cisco TACACS connector in Lucidum, you must first enable the web interface for the Access Control System. This allows you to use the REST web service from Lucidum.
To enable the web interface on ACS, from the ACS CLI, enter:
acs config-web-interface rest enable
