Yes. The Group Login is the "Local ID" of the VPN client, and Group Password is shared secret.

Pretty much. Cisco vpns use two passwords though, the first is the group (used to distinguish which vpn you wish to connect to, on cisco devices that have more than one) which is stored in reversable encryption within the profile, and the second is the user, which is supplied on connect. the latter can be substituted with a certificate or token (as the cisco will happily check certs and/or forward token values to a radius server)
