One-Time Password (OTP) Authentication for VPN connections (FortiGate)

Secure communication between people working remotely and enterprise IT resources is now more important than ever. Therefore, to meet companies and institutions requirements we enable them to increase the level of security for connections to the VPN network.

NACVIEW now allows for integration with FortiGate which is the second platform after Pulse Secure. It allows using of one-time passwords to authorize users' access to the VPN.

How it works

Two conditions must be met for the OTP service to work. First, FortiGate must be configured in NACVIEW as a network device. The second condition is that the user has the FortiClient application.

The first stage of verifying the user's identity is checking his credentials in the local NACIEW database or in an external, e.g. Active Directory. If the login and password are correct, and the account is active and the resource is properly configured, the second stage of validation takes place. NACVIEW sends the user an SMS with a verification code, which must be entered into the FortiClient application. After correct verification of the code and its validity, access to specific network resources is granted.

The administrator can choose additional parameters while he configuring OTP in NACVIEW, for example, code lifetime or message content. The OTP module is equipped with the ability to create object groups and display logs from authorization events.
