miniOrange Fortinet FortiGate MFA solution integrates with your Fortinet Fortigate SSL VPN to add an extra layer of security to Fortinet client VPN access. This extra layer of security, known as multi-factor authentication , requires users to authenticate through multiple authentication methods in order to access the system, application, or service.
Fortinet VPN is a network security system that allows remote users to safely access an internal network over the Internet. Using two-factor authentication in conjunction with Fortinet VPN or any other remote access solution is a highly recommended security strategy to protect against potential cyber threats such as credential theft, account takeover, and unauthorized access.

miniOrange offers free help through a consultation call with our System Engineers to Install or Setup Two-Factor Authentication for Fortinet solution in your environment with 30-day trial.
For this, you need to just send us an email at [email protected] to book a slot and we'll help you setting it up in no time.
miniOrange accomplishes this by acting as a RADIUS server that accepts the username/password of the user entered as a RADIUS request and validates the user against the user store as Active Directory (AD). After the first level of authentication, miniOrange prompts the user with 2-factor authentication and either grants/revokes access based on the input by the user.
miniOrange provides user authentication from various external directories such as miniOrange Directory, Microsoft AD, Azure Active Directory/LDAP, AWS Cognito and many more.

|Any name for your reference.
|IP address of VPN server which will send Radius authentication request.
For Eg. "sharedsecret"
(Keep this with you, you will need to configure same on VPN Server).
|Include Password & OTP in same Request
|Check this option for clients which takes password and the OTP in same request. Otherwise keep it unchecked.
|Send Groups in Response
|Enable this to send user groups as Vendor-Specific Group Attributes.
|Vendor Attribute ID

miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Okta, Shibboleth, Ping, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more. You can configure your existing directory/user store or add users in miniOrange.
Configure your existing directories such as Microsoft Active Directory, Azure, OpenLDAP, etc.
Here's the list of the attributes and what it does when we enable it. You can enable/disable accordingly.
|All user authentications will be done with LDAP credentials if you Activate it
|Sync users in miniOrange
|Users will be created in miniOrange after authentication with LDAP
|If LDAP credentials fail then user will be authenticated through miniOrange
|Allow users to change password
|This allows your users to change their password. It updates the new credentials in your LDAP server
|Enable administrator login
|On enabling this, your miniOrange Administrator login authenticates using your LDAP server
|Show IdP to users
|If you enable this option, this IdP will be visible to users
|Send Configured Attributes
|If you enable this option, then only the attributes configured below will be sent in attributes at the time of login
Refer our guide to setup LDAPS on windows server.
Note: Below steps are used to enable one time or manual sync. To enable sync on scheduled basis, you should use LDAP gateway module. Read more and download the LDAP gateway module.
1. Create User in miniOrange
2. Bulk Upload Users in miniOrange via Uploading CSV File.
(The Active Directory Group Provisioning (Sync) setup is done. Now, whenever a user is created or modified in LDAP server and if the Assign Users to groups is enabled, then user group attribute from the LDAP server will be automatically synced and the user group will be assigned or changed accordingly in miniOrange.)
Note: You can follow this guide, if you want to customize and enroll MFA for end users.
Cause: Either the firewall has multiple outgoing IPs or Fortinet UI is not working.
Solution: Check for the configuration and use static ip for firewall and try test authentication using CLI.
Enter the following command in CLI to test connection:
#diagnose test authserver radius <server_name> <chap | pap | mschap | mschap2> <username> <password>
#config user radius
set server "<vpn_server_ip>"
set secret SUPERSECRETPASSWORD
set auth-type <chap | pap | mschap | mschap2>
#config user group
set member "<server_name>"
set server-name "<server_name>"
set group-name "radiusgroup"
#config system admin
set remote-auth enable
set accprofile "super_admin"
set vdom "root"
set remote-group "radiusgroup"
set password fortinetlocal
Cause: This is because the server(from putty) does not read our 2FA challenge message.
Solution: Put received OTP in both New Password and Confirm Password.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an authentication method that requires the user to authenticate themselves for two or more factors, in order to gain access to company resources, applications, or a VPN (Fortinet in this case). Enabling Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) means that users need to provide additional verification factors apart from their username and passwords thus increasing the security of the organization's resources. Checkout more about Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) here.
Depending on the VPN client, 2-factor authentication can take two forms..
miniOrange supports multiple 2FA/MFA authentication methods for Fortinet secure access such as, Push Notification, Soft Token, Microsoft / Google Authenticator etc.
