Secondary VPN authentication

Hi All,

I would like to add extra security to our RRAS VPN. I'm wondering is there a way for extra authentication layer. I would like to avoid solutions we would have to pay for, like SecurID etc.

is there anything build in within RRAS we could use?

Probably not to the extent that you would really want. If you are running an an Active Directory environment you can limit who can gain access by username. You can also write an access rule that restricts by such things as time of day. But there's really no facility to do real second level authentication.  You can have authentication take place with a radius server.  I've not used Radius so I can't comment on what features that might add to the mix.

Even though it would cost some money, you might want to look into a Grid Card system like from Entrust. It supposedly does a good job and is supposed to be much less expensive than a token system like SecureID.
