Array Networks SSL VPN Integration with AuthPoint

Deployment Overview

This document describes how to set up multi-factor authentication (MFA) for Array Networks Server and SSL VPN client with AuthPoint. Array must already be configured and deployed before you set up MFA with AuthPoint.

This integration was tested with Array NetWorks Server version AG. and Array SSL VPN client version

Array Authentication Data Flow with AuthPoint

AuthPoint communicates with various cloud-based services and service providers. This diagram shows the data flow of an MFA transaction for Array with the RADIUS protocol.

Before You Begin

Before you begin these procedures, make sure that:

  • End-users can log in to the Array
  • A token is assigned to a user in AuthPoint
  • You have downloaded and installed the AuthPoint Gateway (see About Gateways)

Array Radius Configuration

Array can authenticate users via several methods. In this document, the RADIUS based authentication is used.

  4. Click Save.

  1. From the Role Resource tab, select VPN.

  1. In the Netpool Resources section, click Add.

  1. In the VPN-Resource-Group Resources section, click Add.

Configure AuthPoint

Before AuthPoint can receive authentication requests from Array, you must add the Array client as a RADIUS resource in AuthPoint. You must also assign this RADIUS resource to the user group that will authenticate through Array.

Add a Array Resource in AuthPoint

From the AuthPoint management UI:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Resources.
  2. From the Choose a Resource Type drop-down list, select RADIUS Client. Click Add Resource.

  1. Configure the settings for all options on the RADIUS page.

Add an Access Policy to AuthPoint

You must have at least one user group in AuthPoint for authentication with Array, and you must assign an access policy for the Array resource to that group. If you already have a group, you do not have to add another group.

In the AuthPoint management UI:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Groups.
  2. To add a new group, click Add Group. If you already have a group that you want to use, select the group to edit it.

  1. In the Name text box, type a descriptive name for the group.
  2. (Optional) In the Description text box, type a description of the group.

  1. In the Access Policy section, click Add Policy.

  1. In the Add Policy dialog box, from the Resource drop-down list, select the resource you want to add an access policy for.
  2. (Optional) To require that users type their password before they authenticate for this resource, enable the Require Password Authentication toggle.
  3. Select the authentication options that users in this group can select from when they authenticate.

    For SAML resources, if you select more than one authentication option, users must select one of the available options when they authenticate. For example, if you select OTP and Push, users can choose to type their OTP or approve a push to authenticate. You cannot require that they do both.

  1. Click Add.

  1. (Optional) Add one or more safe locations to your group. For more information about safe locations and detailed instructions to add them, see About Safe Locations.
  2. Click Save.

Before you assign users to a group, you must add the users to AuthPoint. You can manually add user accounts or import user accounts from an external user database. For more information on how to add user accounts, see Add User Accounts.

Bind the RADIUS Resource to a Gateway

To use RADIUS authentication with AuthPoint, you must have the AuthPoint Gateway installed on your corporate network and you must assign your RADIUS resources to the Gateway in the AuthPoint management UI. The Gateway functions as a RADIUS server. For more information, see About Gateways.

  1. From the navigation menu, select Gateway.
  2. Select the Name of the Gateway.
  3. In the RADIUS section, in the Port text box, type the port number used to communicate with the Gateway. The default ports are 1812 and 1645.
  4. In the Select a RADIUS resource drop-down list, select your RADIUS client resource.
  5. Click Save.

Test the Integration

To test the integration of AuthPoint and Array, you can authenticate with a mobile token on your mobile device. You can choose any method (one-time password, QR code, or push).

In this example, we show the one-time password authentication method.

  1. Open the Array SSL VPN client.
  2. Select Profile > Create.
  3. Type a Profile Name.
  4. Type your VPN Server and VPN Port. Click OK.

  1. Select the created profile and click Connect.
  2. In the Username text box, type your AuthPoint user name.
  3. In the Password text box, type your AuthPoint password and the one-time password for your token.
  4. Click OK.
