Creating Cisco pxGrid connector
Cisco pxGrid for FortiManager centralizes the updates from pxGrid for all FortiGate devices, and leverages the efficient FSSO protocol to apply dynamic policy updates to FortiGate.
FortiManager version 5.6 ADOM or later.
The method described in this topic for creating fabric connectors requires version 6.0 ADOM or later.
- FortiGate is managed by FortiManager.
- The managed FortiGate unit is configured to work with Cisco pxGrid.
- Configure the Cisco ISE server and download the certificate.
To configure Cisco ISE server:
- Create a Security Group: Go to ISE > Work Centers > TrustSec > Components > Security Groups. Click Add.
- Create a User Identity Group: Go to ISE > Administration > Identity Management > Groups > User Identity Groups. Click Add.
- Create a user and add it to User Identity Group: Go to ISE > Administration > Identity Management > Identities. Click Add.
- Match the Security Group with User Identity Group in the policy: Go to ISE > Work Centers >TrustSec > Components > Policy Sets. Right-click and go to Authorization policy > Basic_Authenticatied _Access and click Edit to match the Security Group with the User Identity Group.
- Generate the pxGrid certificate and download it to the local computer: Go to ISE > Administration > pxGrid Services > Certificate and select Generate pxGrid Certificates.
- See log for current users: Go to ISE > Operations > RADIUS > Live Logs.
- See live sessions of current users: Go to ISE > Operations > RADIUS > Live Sessions.
To configure FortiManager:
- Go to System Settings > Local Certificates > Import. Import the downloaded certificate.
- Go to Fabric View > Fabric Connectors.
- Click Create New.
- Select Cisco pxGrid and click Next.
- Configure the following options and click OK to create the Cisco pxGrid connector:
Type a name for the fabric connector object.
Toggle On to enable the fabric connector object. Toggle OFF to disable the fabric connector object.
Type the IP address for Cisco ISE server.
Select the imported CA Certificate.
Select the imported Client Certificate.
- Go to Policy & Objects > Object Configuration > Single Sign-On. Select the connector and click Import.
- The pxGrid connector is imported. Click Close to close the import dialog.
- Click User Groups and create a new group. Set the type as FSSO/Cisco TrustSec, and select pxGrid user as a member.
- Create a policy with the ISEgroup user group and install the policy to FortiGate.
- Go to Fabric View > Fabric Connectors. Click Monitor to see the users currently logged in.
- Log on to FortiGate to view the ISE user group.
- On the FortiGate command line, use the
diagnose debug authd fssolist to monitor the current user list.
