Script to create users and their certificates

Hi

Our company is sending most of its employees to work from home in order to protect us from covid-19. We are relying on Checkpoint VPN Mobile Client to provide connectivity to our virtual Wokplaces.

Because of that, I have to create a large list of users on our Check Point firewall and their associated certificate (internalCA) Is there a way to automate user and certificate creation? I have created some manually, but that is not efficient.

Thanks,

   Alex Lansac

Re: Script to create users and their certificates

There aren't formal APIs for this.
However, there is a different approach you can take.

You can generate registration keys for each of your users which they can enter into their VPN client to generate a key on the fly.
You can see the process for generating these keys and mailing them to users demonstrated here: https://community.checkpoint.com/t5/Check-Point-for-Beginners-CP4B/Installing-Remote-Access-VPN-and-...

Re: Script to create users and their certificates

Thanks PhoneBoy. Your approach is very interesting and a clean way to create and distribute certificates. In fact we have to create the users and a certificate for each user. With your solution the seccond part would be solved. Is there a way to create the users from script or CSV file?

Since there's no API support for it at the moment, you will have to use the generic-object API to do it.

Jim has explained it all in detail in this post: https://community.checkpoint.com/t5/API-CLI-Discussion-and-Samples/Add-new-user-and-assign-to-an-exi...
