Firebox Mobile VPN with IKEv2 Integration with AuthPoint for Active Directory Users

Deployment Overview

This document describes how to set up AuthPoint multi-factor authentication (MFA) for Active Directory users that use Mobile VPN with IKEv2. To configure AuthPoint MFA for Azure Active Directory users that user Mobile VPN with IKEv2, see Firebox Mobile VPN with IKEv2 Integration with AuthPoint for Azure Active Directory Users.

Your WatchGuard Firebox must already be configured and deployed before you set up MFA with AuthPoint.

If the IKEv2 VPN client is only used by local AuthPoint users, you do not have to configure Microsoft NPS or enable MS–CHAPv2. NPS is only required for users synced from Active Directory or an LDAP database.

AuthPoint supports RADIUS authentication with PAP and MS-CHAPv2. 802.1x authentication is not supported.

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

Integration Summary

The hardware and software used in this guide include:

  • Firebox with Fireware v12.7
  • Firebox with Fireware v12.6.x and lower
  • AuthPoint Gateway v6.1 or higher
  • Windows Server 2019 with Microsoft Network Policy Server (NPS) and Active Directory Domain Services

WatchGuard Firebox Authentication Data Flow with AuthPoint

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

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 or communication with NPS.

Before You Begin

Before you begin these procedures, make sure that:

  • If you have Fireware v12.6.x or lower, we recommend that you have installed and configured v6.1 or higher of the AuthPoint Gateway (see About Gateways)
  • You have installed and configured Active Directory Domain Services
  • You have installed Network Policy and Access Services, which includes Network Policy Server (NPS)

Configure AuthPoint MFA for Firebox Mobile VPN with IKEv2 (Fireware v12.7 or Higher)

The steps to configure AuthPoint and your Firebox are different based on the version of Fireware that you have. Complete the steps in this section to configure AuthPoint MFA for Active Directory users that use Mobile VPN with IKEv2 with Fireware v12.7 or higher.

With Fireware v12.7 or higher, you can add AuthPoint as an authentication server on your Firebox. For this configuration, you must register and connect your Firebox to WatchGuard Cloud as a locally-managed Firebox (this integration does not support cloud-managed Fireboxes). For detailed instructions to register and connect your Firebox to WatchGuard Cloud, see Add a Locally-Managed Firebox to WatchGuard Cloud.

To configure AuthPoint MFA for a Firebox with Fireware v12.7 or higher that is not connected to WatchGuard Cloud, follow the steps in the Configure AuthPoint MFA for Firebox Mobile VPN with IKEv2 (Fireware v12.6.x and Lower) section.

Configure Microsoft NPS Server

To enable users synced from Active Directory to successfully authenticate with MS-CHAPv2, you must configure Microsoft Network Policy Server (NPS). NPS is required to validate the user credentials from MS-CHAPv2 RADIUS requests against Active Directory.

In our example, Active Directory and NPS are installed on the same server. If NPS is installed on a different server than Active Directory, you must register NPS in the Active Directory domain and log in as a domain administrator.

For instructions to configure Active Directory Domain Services, see the Microsoft documentation for Active Directory.

If the IKEv2 VPN client is only used by local AuthPoint users, you do not have to configure Microsoft NPS. Continue to Configure the Firebox section.

  1. On the Windows server, run Server Manager.
  2. Select Tools > Network Policy Server.
    The Network Policy Server console appears.
  3. Select RADIUS Clients and Servers > RADIUS Clients.
  4. Right-click RADIUS Clients and select New.
    The New RADIUS Client window appears.
  5. In the Friendly name text box, type a name.
  6. In the Address (IP or DNS) text box, type the IP address of the Firebox. In our example, the IP address of the Firebox is 192.168.100.1.
  7. In the Shared secret and Confirm shared secret text boxes, type a shared secret key. This key is used to communicate with Firebox or AuthPoint Gateway.

    You must use the same shared secret key when you configure your Firebox in the Configure RADIUS Authentication section and your RADIUS client resource in the Add a RADIUS Client Resource in AuthPoint section.

Configure AuthPoint

Before AuthPoint can receive authentication requests from the Firebox, you must:

Configure a Firebox Resource

From the AuthPoint management UI:

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

  1. In the Name text box, type a descriptive name for the resource.
  2. From the Firebox drop-down list, select the Firebox that you want to connect to AuthPoint. This list only shows Fireboxes that you have added to WatchGuard Cloud.
  3. To configure the RADIUS client resource to accept MS-CHAPv2 authentication requests, click the Enable MS-CHAPv2 toggle.
    Additional fields appear.

    If the IKEv2 VPN client is only used by local AuthPoint users, you do not have to enable MS–CHAPv2. Continue to Step 10.

  4. In the NPS RADIUS Server trusted IP or FQDN text box, type the IP address or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the NPS RADIUS server.
  5. In the Port text box, type 1812.
  6. In the Timeout In Seconds text box, type 60.
  7. In the Shared Secret text box, type the shared secret key that you specified in the Configure Microsoft NPS Server section. This is the password that the RADIUS server (AuthPoint Gateway) and the RADIUS client (Firebox) will use to communicate.

  1. Click Save.

After you add the Firebox resource in AuthPoint, the AuthPoint authentication server on your Firebox is enabled. When you configure Mobile VPN with IKEv2 on the Firebox, you must add the AuthPoint authentication server to your Mobile VPN with IKEv2 configuration.

Add a Group in AuthPoint

You must have at least one user group in AuthPoint to configure MFA. If you already have a group, you do not have to add another group.

To add a group to AuthPoint:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Groups.
  2. Click Add Group.
    The New Group page appears.

Screenshot that shows the Groups page.

  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.

Screen shot of the New Group page.

  1. Click Save.
    Your group is listed on the Groups page.

Screenshot of the Save button on the New Group page.

Add an Authentication Policy to AuthPoint

Authentication policies specify which resources users can authenticate to and which authentication methods they can use (Push, QR code, and OTP).

OTP authentication is only supported for local AuthPoint users. To configure OTP authentication, you must create a separate authentication policy for local users that requires password and OTP. The policy for local users should have a higher priority. If you enable both the push and OTP authentication methods for a single policy, IKEv2 VPN clients associated with the policy use push notifications to authenticate users.

You must have at least one authentication policy in AuthPoint that includes the Firebox resource. If you already have authentication policies, you do not have to create a new authentication policy. You can add this resource to your existing authentication policies.

Users that do not have an authentication policy for a specific resource cannot authenticate to log in to that resource.

To configure an authentication policy:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Authentication Policies.
  2. Click Add Policy.

Screenshot of the Add Policy button on the Authentication Policies page.

  1. Type a name for this policy.
  2. From the Select the authentication options drop-down list, select Authentication options and select the Password and Push check boxes.

    OTP authentication is only supported for local AuthPoint users. To configure OTP authentication, you must create a separate authentication policy for local AuthPoint users that requires the password and OTP authentication options.

    QR code authentication is not supported for Firebox resources.

  1. Select which groups this policy applies to. You can select more than one group. To configure this policy to apply to all groups, select All Groups.
  2. Select the resource that you created in the Configure a Firebox Resource section. If you want this policy to apply to additional resources, select each resource this policy applies to. To configure this policy to apply to all resources, select All Resources.

Screenshot of the Add Policy page with the groups and resources selected

  1. (Optional) If you have configured policy objects such as a Network Location, select which policy objects apply to this policy. When you add a policy object to a policy, the policy only applies to user authentications that match the conditions of the policy objects. For example, if you add a Network Location to a policy, the policy only applies to user authentications that come from that Network Location. Users who only have a policy that includes a Network Location do not get access to the resource when they authenticate outside of that Network Location (because they do not have a policy that applies, not because authentication is denied).

    Policies that have a Network Location apply to Firebox resources.

    If you configure policy objects, we recommend that you create a second policy for the same groups and resources without the policy objects. The policy with the policy objects should have a higher priority.

Screenshot of the Policy Objects drop-down list.

  1. Click Save.
    Your policy is created and added to the end of the policy list.

    When you create a new policy, we recommend that you review the order of your policies. AuthPoint always adds new policies to the end of the policy list.

Screenshot of the Save button on the Add Policy page.

Sync Users to AuthPoint from Active Directory

You must create AuthPoint user accounts for your users. To sync users from Active Directory, you must add an LDAP external identity and create one or more queries.

In AuthPoint, LDAP external identities represent external user databases. They connect to user databases to get user account information and validate passwords. The queries you add to an external identity specify which users to sync from your Active Directory or LDAP database. They pull user information and create AuthPoint user accounts for the users that are found.

For detailed instructions to sync users from Active Directory, see Sync Users from Active Directory or LDAP.

Configure the Firebox

  1. Select VPN > Mobile VPN.
  2. In the IKEv2 section, click Manually Configure.
  3. Select the Activate Mobile VPN with IKEv2 check box.

Configure the Firebox

You must configure the RADIUS authentication settings and enable Mobile VPN with IKEv2 on your Firebox.

Configure RADIUS Authentication

When a user authenticates with AuthPoint MFA, AuthPoint does not send a response to the Firebox until the user approves the push notification that is sent to them or until the push authentication expires.

When you configure the RADIUS authentication server, the timeout value must be greater than the combined push timeout for AuthPoint (60 seconds) and NPS (30 seconds). With the default settings on RADIUS authentication server, if a user does not approve the push notification that is sent to them within 30 seconds (3 tries, 10 seconds each), the Firebox will fail over to another server, even though the current server is not down.

  1. Log in to Fireware Web UI (https://<your firebox IP address>:8080).
  2. Select Authentication > Servers.

    The Authentication Servers page appears.
  3. From the Authentication Servers list, click RADIUS.

    Your group is listed on the Groups page.

Screenshot of the Save button on the New Group page.

Add an Authentication Policy to AuthPoint

Authentication policies specify which resources users can authenticate to and which authentication methods they can use (Push, QR code, and OTP).

You must have at least one authentication policy in AuthPoint that includes the Firebox resource. If you already have authentication policies, you do not have to create a new authentication policy. You can add this resource to your existing authentication policies.

Users that do not have an authentication policy for a specific resource cannot authenticate to log in to that resource.

To configure an authentication policy:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Authentication Policies.
  2. Click Add Policy.

Screenshot of the Add Policy button on the Authentication Policies page.

  1. Type a name for this policy.
  2. From the Select the authentication options drop-down list, select Authentication options and select the Password and Push check boxes.

    QR code authentication is not supported for RADIUS resources.

    OTP authentication is not supported for MS-CHAPv2 RADIUS resources.

  1. Select which groups this policy applies to. You can select more than one group. To configure this policy to apply to all groups, select All Groups.
  2. Select the resource that you created in the previous section. If you want this policy to apply to additional resources, select each resource this policy applies to. To configure this policy to apply to all resources, select All Resources.

Screenshot of the Add Policy page with the groups and resources selected

  1. (Optional) If you have configured policy objects such as a Network Location, select which policy objects apply to this policy. When you add a policy object to a policy, the policy only applies to user authentications that match the conditions of the policy objects. For example, if you add a Network Location to a policy, the policy only applies to user authentications that come from that Network Location. Users who only have a policy that includes a Network Location do not get access to the resource when they authenticate outside of that Network Location (because they do not have a policy that applies, not because authentication is denied).

    For RADIUS authentication, policies that have a Network Location do not apply because AuthPoint does not have the IP address of the user.

    If you configure policy objects, we recommend that you create a second policy for the same groups and resources without the policy objects. The policy with the policy objects should have a higher priority.

Screenshot of the Policy Objects drop-down list.

  1. Click Save.
    Your policy is created and added to the end of the policy list.

    When you create a new policy, we recommend that you review the order of your policies. AuthPoint always adds new policies to the end of the policy list.

Screenshot of the Save button on the Add Policy page.

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.

If you have not already configured and installed the AuthPoint Gateway, see About Gateways.

To assign your RADIUS resources to the Gateway:

  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.

    If you already have a RADIUS server installed that uses port 1812 or 1645, you must use a different port for the AuthPoint Gateway.

  4. In the Select a RADIUS resource drop-down list, select your RADIUS client resource.
  5. Click Save.

Sync Users to AuthPoint from Active Directory

You must create AuthPoint user accounts for your users. To sync users from Active Directory, you must add an LDAP external identity and create one or more queries.

In AuthPoint, LDAP external identities represent external user databases. They connect to user databases to get user account information and validate passwords. The queries you add to an external identity specify which users to sync from your Active Directory or LDAP database. They pull user information and create AuthPoint user accounts for the users that are found.

For detailed instructions to sync users from Active Directory, see Sync Users from Active Directory or LDAP.

Test the Integration

To test the integration of AuthPoint and the configuration of your Mobile VPN with IKEv2, you authenticate with a mobile token on your mobile device. For RADIUS resources with MS-CHAPv2 enabled, you authenticate with a push notification (you receive a push notification in the mobile app that you must approve to authenticate).

  1. From a Windows 10 computer, open the Windows menu and select Settings.
  2. Select Network & Internet > VPN.
  3. Select your VPN connection and click Connect.
  4. Type your user name and password.
  5. Approve the authentication request that is sent to your mobile device.
    The VPN connects successfully.

To apply firewall policies to VLAN traffic between local interfaces, select the Apply firewall policies to intra-VLAN traffic check box in Fireware. Intra-VLAN traffic is traffic from a VLAN that is destined for the same VLAN. When you enable this feature, the Firebox applies policies to traffic that passes through the firewall between hosts that are on the same VLAN. If you want to apply policies to intra-VLAN traffic, make sure that no alternate path exists between the source and destination. The VLAN traffic must go through the Firebox in order for firewall policies to apply, For more information, see Define a New VLAN.
