Two-factor PAN webconsole authentication

L0 Member


I would like to use a two-factor authentication for the administrators when they access the PAN-500 web console.

With an authentication sequence I can use 2 ways to authenticate but I want to force the use of both. Is that possible?

As far as I know, that would only be possible if combining a Certificate Profile with the Authentication Profile.

For proper 2FA, you should have a dedicated RADIUS 2FA server.

And with 'certificate profile' you mean the new function in 7.0 right?

Hello Oasen,


I'm currently running PAN-OS 7.1.2 on a PA-200 and recently added Two-factor Authentication for administrator account logins using the Duo Security 2FA system.  Here's a link to the web site that describes how to set up 2FA with the GlobalProtect VPN.


If you follow all of the steps from the beginning through "Add an Authentication Profile", you will just need to add the new DuoRADIUS Authenication Profile to the administrator accounts that you would like to have authenticated via Two-factor Authentication.


It works GREAT!


Kind regards,
