How to deploy Cisco Duo for Citrix (NetScaler) Gateway (Citrix ADC) – nFactor

To add Duo two-factor authentication to your Citrix Gateway with nFactor you’ll configure the Duo Authentication Proxy as a secondary RADIUS authentication server. Primary authentication happens directly between the Citrix Gateway and your Active Directory, LDAP, or other identity store, which enables additional features such as AD password resets.

Before starting, make sure that Duo is compatible with your Citrix Gateway device. Log on to your Citrix Gateway via the web interface and verify that your Citrix Gateway firmware is version 12.1-51.16 or later and your Citrix Receiver or Citrix Workspace clients support 12.1 or later.

Also verify that your Citrix Gateway is licensed for Advanced Authentication Policy. As of Citrix Gateway release 13.0-67.x, the “Standard” license also includes nFactor for Gateway/VPN, while Citrix ADC requires an “Advanced” or “Premium” license to use nFactor.

1.Log in to the Duo Admin Panel and navigate to Applications.

2.Click Protect an Application and locate Citrix Gateway (NetScaler) in the applications list.

3.Click Protect to get your integration key, secret key, and API hostname. You’ll need this information to complete your setup.

4.Install the Duo Authentication Proxy

Download the most recent Authentication Proxy for Windows from  https://dl.duosecurity.com/duoauthproxy-latest.exe.

Note that the actual filename will reflect the version.

5.Launch the Authentication Proxy installer on the target Windows server as a user with administrator rights and follow the on-screen prompts

6.On the User Account Control page, click Yes.

7.Run following command:

Duoautoproxy-5.6.0.exe /S

8.Configure the Proxy

The Duo Authentication Proxy configuration file is named authproxy.cfg, and is located in the conf subdirectory of the proxy installation. With default installation paths, the proxy configuration file will be located at:

8.You also can use Duo Authentication Proxy Manager to modify files.

The Duo Authentication Proxy Manager is a Windows utility for managing the Authentication Proxy installation on the Windows server where you install the Authentication Proxy. The Proxy Manager comes with Duo Authentication Proxy for Windows version 5.6.0 and later.

9.Open the Start Menu and go to Duo Security.

10.Click the Duo Authentication Proxy Manager icon to launch the application. You must have administrative privileges on the Windows server and accept the prompt for elevation.

11.On the User Account Control page, click Yes.

12.The Proxy Manager launches and automatically opens the %ProgramFiles%\Duo Security Authentication Proxy\conf\authproxy.cfg file for editing

13.Configure the Proxy for Duo Only Authentication

At the top of your authproxy.cfg, create a [duo_only_client] section. This section has no additional parameters to configure.

14.When using the [duo_only_client] configuration, the Authentication Proxy will ignore primary credentials and perform Duo factor authentication only.

15.Configure the Proxy for Your Citrix Gateway

you need to set up the Authentication Proxy to work with your Citrix Gateway or NetScaler. Create a [radius_server_iframe] section and add the properties listed below.

type: Set to citrix_netscaler_rfwebui. Requires Authentication Proxy v3.1.0 and NS build 12.1-51.16 or later.

api_host: Your API hostname (i.e. api-XXXXXXXX.duosecurity.com)

ikey: Your Duo Citrix NetScaler integration key

skey: Your Duo Citrix NetScaler secret key

failmode: Either safe or secure. safe-In the event that Duo’s service cannot be contacted, users’ authentication attempts will be permitted if primary authentication succeeds. (Default); secure-In the event that Duo’s service cannot be contacted, all users’ authentication attempts will be rejected.

client: duo_only_client

radius_ip_1: A secret to be shared between the proxy and your (first) Citrix Gateway or NetScaler

radius_secret_1: A secret to be shared between the proxy and your (first) Citrix Gateway or NetScaler

radius_ip_X: Optional) IP addresses of additional Citrix Gateway or NetScaler management hosts (specified as radius_ip_2, radius_ip_3, etc.)

radius_secret_X: (Optional) Secrets shared with additional Citrix Gateways or NetScalers (specified as radius_secret_2, radius_secret_3, etc.)

port: Port on which to listen for incoming RADIUS Access Requests. If you have multiple RADIUS server sections you should use a unique port for each one. Default: 1812.

16.Click Validate after you set up the Authentication Proxy.

17.To make sure validation passed.
