    VPN remote access with Duo Multi-Factor Authentication. Demo

    Date: 01.04.2020


    VPN remote access connections can use Duo as second factor authentication (e.g. with push app notifications). I am presenting a video showing how to use this configuration as a continuation of application of Cisco Duo Security for RDP sessions demo available here.
    The components of the system used in lab:
    • Cisco Firepower vFTD virtual appliance
    • Cisco Duo Security mobile app for MFA actions
    • Duo cloud for MFA provisioning
    • Cisco Anyconnect Secure Mobility client for VPN remote access
    • Grandmetric Labs Active Directory
    • Cisco Identity Services Engine for granular AAA policy building

    You can also read more about one of VPN MFA integration between Duo and Cisco ISE and ASA in large e-commerce that we described in our blog in 2017  You can read there about authentication flow and HLD architecture.
