Endpoint Security VPN certificate-based authentication on Linux

Hello,

I'm working for a client who uses Check Point Endpoint Security VPN for their remote access solutions. I have a server address and password-protected certificate (p12) which I can use to authenticate and get VPN access. This works fine on Windows using Check Point's client. 

How can I use the same certificate to connect to this VPN using a Linux endpoint, preferably using a terminal client?

I realize Check Point doesn't provide its own Linux client, but I would assume the protocols used aren't home-brewed, meaning an existing Linux client could probably be used (e.g. Openswan).

I couldn't find any guides or other form of documentation in Check Point's knowledge base, and all forum posts  related to VPN+Linux discuss username+password-based authentication, not certificate-based. 

Thanks for any help with this.
