Hello everyone!I know there is a change in RADIUS to authenticate a user using his mac-address. Is it possible with TACACS?

The MAC Address authentication works only in an EAP Protocol environment, TACACS does not support EAP. Here is an old discussion about the above statement:https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/message/8820Hope this helps,

Thank you for your answer and the link.Everyone says EAP is not supported in TACACS, but there is EAP configuration in TACACS, especially PEAP, LEAP and etc.

EAP for TACACS? Do you see it in ACS? Could you instruct us where that is?

Sure. Go to System Configuration, and then to Global Authentication Setup, you will find PEAP, LEAP and other EAP settings
