SAML authentication for Remote access VPN- JHF Take 114

Dear All,

Very recently Checkpoint release Ongoing take Jumbo HF Take_114 to support SAML authentication for Remote access VPN.

Question:-

1. CheckPoint R80.40 /w JHF 114 duly support SAML authentication for Remote access VPN. 

2. Does anyone started using this in production environment by running the Ongoing take instead of GA?

3. Are there any open caveat?

4. CheckPoint VPN client version are available for both Windows and Mac OS?

 

In the end, we were looking forward to run CheckPoint R80.40 to authenticate Mobile Access + Remote access VPN using SAML (Azure IdP) without any dependencies with internal AD or local authentication. 

Any feedback or comments will be really appreciated.......

Hi @BALAJIRAJAH_PB ,

  1. Yes, we do support SAML integration for RA VPN clients.
  2. This feature was delivered to some customers (on production environments) as customer release before delivered to the JHF. 
  3. The feature passed both customer production coverage and QA tests.
  4. Yes.

If you have any additional questions, please tag me 🙂

For remote access VPN, IdP authentication with Azure is not working. EndPoint VPN client triggers the embedded Azure MFA authentication but results in HTTP 500 error. Any insight?

Hi @BALAJIRAJAH_PB ,

I'm sorry to understand this feature is not working for you out of the box.

Error 500 can be caused by few reasons - we first need to understand if it happens before or after the redirection to the IDP to give us lead to the area of the problem.

The best suggestion at this stage, is to open a new ticket to our support, and attach the logs from "/opt/CPVPNPortal/logs"

Hi @Royi_Priov , I already created a case with CheckPoint support. Started my troubleshooting session on 25th May 2021. Still now no improvement.

Using single Azure domain, Check Point gateway support IdP SAML 2.0 authentication either for Mobile Access or Remote access. 

Not both at the same time.  Looking for a hotfix
