Global Protect Limitations

L3 Networker

Is there a way to stop disabled AD computer accounts from connecting to GP?  We have a HIP profile attached to the GP rules which force the user to be compliant (ie. member of domain and have AntiVirus).  however, when we disable their computer account, they are still able to connect.  We can stop them from connecting by removing their user account from the allowed AD group however, we dont disable user accounts as much as we do computer accts.

You authenticate based on user credentials?

Maybe you add second factor - computer certificate that you roll out from AD.

Yes, we authenticate based on user creds.

maybe we could user certs..hmmm

Yes you can.

AD cert service will enroll user certs to all users.

And GP can authenticate based on cert, username/password or both.

ok so if we base on cert and the machine become disabled in AD, we can revoke the cert and eliminate users from connecting?

Yes.

Or modify this powershell a bit to check disabled computer accounts instead of user accounts and schedule it to run every now and then to disable certificates automatically.
