How the authentication will happen for GP if no Group Name and Group Password haven't configured

L3 Networker

Hi Team,


I just want to know on how the authentication will happen and IPSec connection will be established if we haven't configured X-Auth "Group Name" and "Group Password" under GP Gateway settings.


As i see that it will use the Certificate provided by the 3rd party VPN Client. So but i am bit confused on how to understand this scenario. Can you please help me to understand this better. Thanks in advance !!


Please review and clarify on the below comments.


Comments: "If no group name and group password are defined, the first authentication phase is based on a valid certificate presented by the third-party VPN client. This certificate is then validated through the certificate profile configured in the authentication section."

Hi @SahulH ,


When a client certificate is the only means of authentication, the certificate that the user presents must contain the username in one of the certificate fields; typically the username corresponds to the common name (CN) in the Subject field of the certificate.


Is this the information you're looking for ?


Hope it helps,
