ConfD Integration with FreeRADIUS for Authentication

The most common and easiest way to work with ConfD is to use ConfD’s built-in authentication and authorization mechanisms in which all the AAA-related information is being stored in CDB. The next most common way is to use PAM, which allows the same set of users and groups as those of the Linux host itself to have access to ConfD.
