How to Configure Risk Based Authentication

  • Last updated on

Some network environments might require additional security levels to authenticate users when they access specific high-risk SSL VPN resources. Barracuda SSL VPN provides risk based authentication for Web Forwards, applications and SSL tunnels. Each launch of these resource types can be protected by PIN, password or Google Authenticator authentication.

Step 1. Configure the additional security prompt

Configure risk based authentication for an existing Web Forward, application or SSL tunnel, depending on your requirements.

  1. Open the RESOURCES tab.
  2. Edit the resource you want to configure risk based authentication for.
  3. In the Details section, select an option from the Additional Security Prompt list:
    • If you want users to enter a PIN, select PIN.
    • If you want users to enter a password, select Password.
    • If you want users to login via Google Authenticator, select Google Auth verification code.

      With Google Auth verification code selected, users will be prompted to enter the authentication code provided by Google.
