FTD VPN machine certificate based authentication.

Matt Cole

Hi,

Has any one had success with FTD machine certificate based authentication?  I have user certificate based authentication working  but I cannot get machine certificate based authentication to work.  The same Microsoft CA signs both the user and machine certificate.  when I launch anyconnect I get prompted for a certificate to choose and If I select the user certificate it works.  If i chose the computer/machine certificate it fails.  Certificate validation failure.

Hi,

If the user is not an administrator they do not have acces to the machine certificate store, only the user certificate store. You can use the Certificate Store Override option, which allows AnyConnect to access the machine certificate store.

User has access to machine certificate store as I can select it.

I assumed since I could select the certificate anyconnect client had full access.  Running the anyconnect client as administrator allowed the computer certificate to work.

Certificate Store Override setting is ticked however it still doesnt work without running the client as administrator.
