Global Protect and digital certificate

We would like to deploy a VPN client with both digital certificate (for group authentication) and RSA SecurID password (for strong authentication); so far we have failed in importing into GlobalProtect client digital certificates: is it supported? In this case, do you happen to have an how-to guide for this?

Thanks and Regards

GlobalProtect Agent uses a SSL certfificate to authenticate to the gateway as a proof that it belongs to the same deployment. This certificate is provided through the GlobalProtect portal and is used among all agents. In addition to that, GlobalProtect requires user authentication, which can be done through RSA SecurID when connecting to the gateways, meaning when the tunnel is established.
