Conc.VPN 3000 + user certificates + radius

Posts: n/a

We use a CISCO VPN Concentrator 3005 (firmware: 3.6.6) as our IPSEC
gateway for remote connections.
We previously used an Activcard radius system to authentify our users,
but now we want to setup a certificate based authenfication (with
smartcard tokens).
We use an Open source PKI to generate our authentification
certificates. We succeed in configuring the CISCO to support this
mode. The OU=<branch> is used to identify the user's group. To check
the users authorization, we want to use a Radius server.

We wonder if in this case a login/password will be asked to the remote
users or if the CISCO directly provides the certificate's DN (or any
other certificate's fields) to the radius server after the

We did not setup a radius yet, that's why I ask the question
(We hope that no login/password is required : it seems "useless" to
ask a login ans a password to the user because the authentification
has been verified durint the IPSEC phase1 negociation).
