MFA 2FA two-factor authentication for ClearPass

  • Primary authentication initiates when the user enters the credentials in order to access the application.
  • An authentication request is sent to miniOrange by the application.
  • Based on the authentication request miniOrange sends the RADIUS Request to the external RADIUS Server (in this case ClearPass) to validate the intial request.
  • Once the user's first level of authentication gets validated, the RADIUS Server will then send RADIUS Response to miniOrange.
  • Then, miniOrange asks for the 2-factor authentication challenge to the user.
  • User submits the response/code based on the second factor method selected.
  • The user response (or second factor) is validated in miniOrange.
  • On successful 2nd factor authentication the user is granted access to the application.
