Mobile VPN with IKEv2

Mobile Virtual Private Networking (Mobile VPN) with IKEv2 (Internet Key Exchange v2) creates a secure connection between a remote computer and the network resources behind the Firebox. Mobile VPN with IKEv2 uses IPSec to provide strong encryption and authentication. In Fireware v12.1 and higher, you can configure Mobile VPN with IKEv2 on the Firebox.

Mobile VPN with IKEv2 supports connections from native IKEv2 VPN clients on iOS, macOS, and Windows mobile devices. Android users can configure an IKEv2 VPN connection with the third-party strongSwan app.

To authenticate mobile IKEv2 users, you can configure Mobile VPN with IKEv2 to use these authentication servers:

  • Firebox-DB (local Firebox authentication)
  • RADIUS
  • AuthPoint (Fireware v12.7 or higher)

For information about IKEv2 user authentication, see About Mobile VPN with IKEv2 User Authentication.
