Introduction

This document describes the behavior for Extended Authentication (XAUTH) for VPN users when both Authentication and Authorization are configured.

Prerequisites

Requirements

Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics:

  • Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA)
  • Remote Access VPN

Components Used

The information in this document is based on a Cisco Aggregation Services Router (ASR)1000 Series that runs Cisco IOS® XE software.

The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

Problem

VPN users are configured in order to be authenticated and authorized by a RADIUS server. The configuration on the ASR is shown here:

aaa group server radius ACS-Rad
server-private 10.88.171.27 key cisco123
ip vrf forwarding Mgmt-intf
aaa group server tacacs+ ACS-Tac
server-private 10.88.171.27 key cisco123
ip vrf forwarding Mgmt-intf
aaa authentication login VPN_Client group ACS-Rad
aaa authentication login login_local local
aaa authorization network VPN_Client group ACS-Rad
aaa authorization network login_local local
aaa accounting network VPN_Client start-stop group ACS-Rad
aaa accounting network login_local start-stop group ACS-Rad
aaa session-id common

However, whenever you try to authenticate, you never get prompted for your credentials. On the client, this error message is seen in the log messages:

Unable to establish Phase 1 SA with server "X.X.X.X" because of
"DEL_REASON_PEER_NOT_RESPONDING"

The debugs on the ASR  indicate that the VPN group name is used as the User-Name for the authorization attempt.

Note: However, everything works fine when local authorization is configured.

Solution

The reported behavior is expected and not a bug. Remote Access VPN has two separate authentication processess:

  1. Preshared key authentication for the tunnel to which the user connects.
  2. XAUTH which authenticates the individual user.

XAUTH is Phase 1.5 and occurs only after the preshared key authentication succeeds in Phase 1. The reason you are not able to see a user prompt for a password is because Phase 1 has not yet completed. The username that is sent in the debugs is actually for the Phase 1 preshared key authentication.

Local Authorization Versus RADIUS Authorization

When local authoriation is configured, the VPN headend picks up the key value configured under the group configuration in order to complete Phase 1. This allows phase 1 to complete, so the router can proceed to XAUTH:

When the router is configured to authorize against the RADIUS server, it does not work because in order to get the key (for preshared authentication), it must do a access-request query to the RADIUS server. However, the access-request query requires a username to be sent to RADIUSA and since XAUTH is not done yet, it cannot use the client user name. In this situation, it uses the group name as the user name instead. However, since the RADIUS server has not been set up to verify any user by that ID, it rejects the request. Because of this, Phase 1 never completes, and the user is never prompted for credentials.

RADIUS Server Configuration

Complete these steps in order to configure the RADIUS server.

  1. Configure the Groupname user:



  2. Configure an Authorization profile in order to give all Attribute Value (AV) Pairs:





  3. Configure an Access policy in order to permit the connection and use that profile:

Troubleshoot

The Output Interpreter Tool (registered customers only) supports certain show commands. Use the Output Interpreter Tool in order to view an analysis of show command output.
