Two-Factor Authentication (2FA/MFA) for Forcepoint

miniOrange integration with Forcepoint VPN offers a seamless and efficient way to enhance security for remote access. The process is straightforward, and you can configure MFA on your Forcepoint VPN within minutes. The integration provides an additional layer of security to ensure that only authorized users have access to it while connecting with the VPN.

In today's hybrid working culture, having a secure remote access environment has become increasingly important. The multifactor authentication feature provided by miniOrange ensures that even if a user's login credentials are compromised, their access to the Forcepoint VPN will still be protected by the additional authentication factor. This provides a strong defence against potential cyber threats and ensures that your organization's data and resources remain secure

miniOrange provides secure access to your Forcepoint by enabling strong authentication with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) using miniOrange RADIUS server. When you integrate Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on your Forcepoint Server, your users need to enter their username and password (first factor) as usual, and as a second factor they have to enter an authentication code which will be shared virtually on their device or in the form of a hardware token. This 2FA/MFA solution adds an additional security measure to prevent unwanted users getting access to your Forcepoint server.

miniOrange 2FA authentication for Forcepoint Login

miniOrange accomplishes this by acting as a RADIUS server that accepts the username/password of the user entered as a RADIUS request and validates the user against the user store as Active Directory (AD). After the first level of authentication, miniOrange prompts the user with 2-factor authentication and either grants/revokes access based on the input by the user.

MFA for Forcepoint

  1. Primary authentication initiates with the user submitting his Username and Password for Forcepoint .
  2. User request acts as an authentication request to RADIUS Server(miniOrange).
  3. miniOrange RADIUS server passes user credentials to validate against the credentials stored in AD (Active Directory) / Database.
  4. Once the user's first level of authentication gets validated AD sends the confirmation to RADIUS Server.
  5. Now miniOrange RADIUS Server asks for a 2-factor authentication challenge to the user.
  6. Here user submits the response/code which he receives on his hardware/phone.
  7. User response is checked at miniOrange’s RADIUS Server side.
  8. On successful 2nd factor authentication the user is granted access to login.

Connect with any External Directories

miniOrange provides user authentication from various external directories such as miniOrange Directory, Microsoft AD, Azure Active Directory/LDAP, AWS Cognito and many more.

    Only For On-Premise Version

    Open Firewall Ports.

  • In order to receive the RADIUS request, it is necessary to open UDP traffic on ports 1812 and 1813 for the machine where On-Premise IdP is deployed.
  • If the hosting machine is a Windows Machine then you can follow this document.
  • If the hosting machine is a Linux Machine then you can follow this document.

  • NOTE: If your machine is hosted on AWS, then enable the ports from the AWS panel.

    2. Exceptions — Opens the Exceptions dialog box.
    Port UDP 1812
    Shared Secret Enter the Shared secret that we used to configure RADIUS app in miniOrange IDP. In step 1 we configured the shared secret as "sharedsecret".

  • To configure the RADIUS authentication server to accept connections from your Firewall engines, follow the below steps:
    • 1. Make sure that the shared secret is entered identically in the Management Client and on the RADIUS authentication server.

      2. The identity that the Firewall provides to the server is the IP address of the interface that has been selected as the value for the IPv4 Identity for Authentication Requests or IPv6 Identity for Authentication Requests or the IPv6 Identity for Authentication Requests or IPv6 Identity for Authentication Requests in the Firewall’s Interface Options.

      Note: The IP address used as the identity is a name only. The interface and IP address used for the authentication-related connections is selected based on the Firewall’s routing information just like for any other connection.

Creating User Groups (Recommended)

  • This step involves Importing the user group from the Active Directory and Provisioning them.
  • Go to Provisioning. Switch to Setup Provisioning tab and select Active Directory from Dropdown menu.
