Hi expert ,

I would like to implement for 100x Ipad to access corporate internal LAN.  I would like to do with 2x Factor secure access with VPN box ,  i think ASA 5500 will be added.  

Question :

1. Do you consider for 2x factor  access , by allowing user go through 802.1x & public CA good enough ???  Some ppl say for 2x FA, second FA should be RSA toggle should be used :(

2. Can AnyConnect can auto provision and do self registration.

3. Can AnyConnect will consume the client certificate during the authentication process or will it forward it over to Radius(Windows MPS) for authentication.

1. Yes. As long as there are two entirely independent authentication mechanisms in place, you have a valid two-factor scheme. If username/password is one method, certificates, tokens, out-of-band challenge/response and many others are valid for your second. It depends on your requirements and preferences.

2. It sure can.

3. Username/password authentication is handled through LDAP or RADIUS, but certificate authentication is verified by a certificate authority. You will need to set up a CA on your Windows server to handle this.
