Section 8.0: Advanced Security
8.1: Password Protection
Configure service password-encryption on all the routers to encrypt the enable password; otherwise, they will appear in clear text in the configuration.
8.2: EXEC Authentication
Configure enable secret on R2.
Configure authentication for shell EXEC without using the AAA engine using the enable use-tacacs command. Note that this is not TACACS+ but TACACS server (without the +). CiscoSecure ACS is not a TACACS server but TACACS+ only.
Configure fallback to pass authentication in the event the TACACS server is down or not found using enable last-resort succeed.
8.3: Access Control
In this case, you can configure autocommand for a user to Telnet to the router. autocommand will execute the required command and exit the session. This way the user will not be able to keep its Telnet session:
Configure R5 Telnet access to permit host 126.96.36.199 only:
username testconfig privilege 15 password 7 15060E1F1029242A2E3A32 username testconfig autocommand show run ! line vty 0 4 privilege level 15 password 7 110A1016141D login local ! end
Test by Telnetting from R1 to 10.50.13.2.

As you can see, as soon as the show run command output finished, the session was closed.
