We are trying to become PCI certificated and have hit a road block. We have isolated our stations so they can not talk to any other application/server besides there local Domain Controller/Application server. We are looking for a way to use Two Factor Authentication to gain access to these remote server using RDP. These servers are mostly Windows Server 2003 with a couple of Windows Server 2008 in the mix.

Has anyone found any solutions for Two Factor authentication and RDP that is fairly low cost or free. From what I can see nothing is build in to a Windows 2003 or 2008 Server do to this. A couple of solutions I have found are Rohos Logon Key http://www.rohos.com/ and PhoneFactor http://www.phonefactor.com.

Any other ideas?

I would use a RADIUS server and VPN

There are some free versions but you still need tokens.

Cryptocard.com has cheap tokens and a relatively cheap RADIUS server


I hope this helps !

The RADIUS and VPN may work. The only questions is does PCI allow for dual-tunneling when accessing these remote resources? Currently our operators and support staff have to access local resources (file servering/local intranet resources) while on the remote servers.
