EAP authentication for IPSec IKEv2 tunnel to VPN provider

L0 Member

Looking to establish an IPSec IKEv2 tunnel to a service such as NordVPN or PrivateInternetAccess. These providers support IKEv2 IPSec tunnels, however they require you supplying your account credentials as part of the authentication process via EAP such as mschapv2 (See screenshot attached of a router config that they support connecting into their service.


Is there a way to specify credentials for EAP authentication in PAN-OS for establishing an IPSec tunnel?

As far as I know that is not supported.

Please have your local SE file a feature request so you and others can add their vote to it.
