Generic Question about two-factor authentication


  • Hi, my boss asked me a question that I am trying to figure out. I have some low end experience with Microsoft's NPS.

    We are thinking about getting a firewall in here that may not do VPN two-factor authentication natively. We are still waiting to here back if it does. We have an existing Cryptocard system my boss wants to use with VPN.

    Is it possible that by using Windows NPS' Radius server that it could handle two factor authentication?

    In this scenerio the new firewall would still handle the VPN and the firewall would think it is connecting to a normal Radius server for authentication but somehow the Microsoft Radius server or NPS would also connect to the Cryptocard system and the two-factor authentication would still happen.

    We apparantly have a large investment in the Cryptocard hardware tokens and wish to still use them.

    Any help would be appreciated.
