Single sign-on with Duo

This tutorial will explain configuring Duo for single sign-on to Pritunl. Users will authenticate through Duo when downloading VPN profiles and before each VPN connection. Although Duo can be used independently for best security it should be used in combination with another single sign-on provider. If Duo is used in combination with another provider the user will need to authenticate with Duo when downloading VPN profiles and before each VPN connection. VPN re-connections will not require a Duo authentication, this can be changed with the Two-Step Authentication Cache settings.

Create Pritunl App on Duo

In the Duo admin interface select Applications then click Protect an Application and search for OpenVPN. Then click Protect this Application. Once the the application has been created set the Name to Pritunl and set Username normalization to Simple. Then click Save Changes.
