How to configure OpenVPN to use WiKID Strong Authentication

These instructions will help you use WiKID Strong Authentication withOpenVPN on Linux.


plugin /usr/share/openvpn/plugin/lib/ openvpn
      If you want to drop the requirement for client certificates, add the following as well:
    • Then, on the client, specify that the user enter a password by adding this to the client.conf or client.opvn:

If you drop the requirement for client certificates on the server, you should also comment them out on the client:

#cert client.crt
#key client.key

Now you need to create the /etc/pam.d/openvpn file. It should only need two lines, one for authentication and one for account:

auth       sufficient   /lib/security/ debug
account    sufficient    /lib/security/

That is it!

The WiKID Strong Authentication System is a very reasonably priced two-factor authentication solution. We invite you to learn more about our technology and architecture and to download and test the Enterprise version.
