VPN Authetication with client certificate

Hi, if I configure VPN authentication with client certificate, it will be necesary to enter password?.

I don't know if with client certificate you don't need user and password as I've seen in other scenarios. Reading documentation from Palo Alto seems that you will need only password (the name autofill with certificate), but I'm not completely sure.

Thank you in advance

There are a few ways you can configure this.

To auto fill the username but manually enter in your password or you can manually enter in your username and password. you will need configure the client cert profile with the username field opt enabled. You can also configure the palo alto to not require an additional login. This will be configured in the auth profile and authenicate set to none. with this setting  you are realyling on the client cert installed on the invidvidual machines.
