Restrict GlobalProtect connection from a single Linux computer

Hi everyone,

 

I must to implement some VPN access control based on computers. By this way, a user will only be able to connect to VPN if agent is executed from a specific computer.

 

I have read the documentation but I don't find if I can restrict the computer from where a user connects to VPN. All VPN clients are Linux and the control can be based on MAC address or serial ID.

 

Thanks beforehand.

My recommendation is use a client certificate, installed on the Linux computer, that will allow only that computer to authenticate.

It is recommended that you have a Global Protect Gateway license, and if you do, then you can do host information profile checks, that indeed, would use the OS and/or a serial number as an "inspection" prior to being able to gain access to the VPN.

Please review this doc and let us know if there are any questions.
