Is it not possible in some way to launch the client from the Windows login screen, create a tunnel with the users credentials, and THEN log in to Windows? Or is the only way going the machine certificate route?
before having logged on to windows, the OS does not permit this sort of user interaction, so only machine level vpn can be set up
@gyrodude TIL this is a new feature in PAN-OS 9.0:
Pre-Logon Followed By Two-Factor and SAML Authentication
The GlobalProtect app for Windows and Mac endpoints now supports pre-logon followed by two-factor or SAML authentication for user login. After the pre-logon tunnel is established, the user can log in to the endpoint and authenticate using the configured authentication method. If authentication is successful on Windows endpoints, the pre-logon tunnel is seamlessly renamed to User tunnel and the GlobalProtect connection is established. If authentication is successful on macOS endpoints, a new tunnel is created and the GlobalProtect connection is established.
