About local AAA

Local AAA on your Aruba switch provides:

  • Authentication using local password or SSH public key.

  • Authorization using role-based access control (RBAC).

  • Accounting of user activity on the switch using accounting logs.


For switches that support multiple management modules such as the Aruba 8400, all AAA functionality discussed only applies to the active management module. See also AAA on switches with multiple management modules in the ArubaOS-CX High Availability Guide.
