Firebox Authentication Portal Integration with AuthPoint

Deployment Overview

This document describes how to set up AuthPoint multi-factor authentication (MFA) for the Firebox Authentication Portal so that users must authenticate when they connect to the Firebox over port 4100.

The Authentication Portal on your Firebox must already be configured before you begin.

This integration was tested with Fireware v12.7.

Your Firebox must run Fireware v12.7.1 or higher to authenticate Azure Active Directory users with the AuthPoint authentication server.

Firebox Authentication Portal Configuration for AuthPoint MFA

AuthPoint communicates with various cloud-based services and service providers with the RADIUS protocol. This diagram shows an overview of the configuration required for RADIUS authentication with the Firebox Authentication Portal.

With Fireware v12.7 or higher, the AuthPoint Gateway is only required to sync LDAP users and groups to AuthPoint. The Gateway is not used for user authentication .

Before You Begin

Before you begin these procedures, make sure that:

  • A token is assigned to a user in AuthPoint
  • You have installed and configured the AuthPoint Gateway (see About Gateways)

Configure AuthPoint MFA for Firebox Authentication Portal

The steps to configure AuthPoint and your Firebox are different based on the version of Fireware that you have.
