Hi, I have a Windows 2022 server configured as a Certification Authority.

I have to generate a certificate that is valid for user authentication for the VPN. In other words, once the user has logged in with the VPN client, they will only be able to access if they have this certificate. What kind of certificate should be issued and how?

Greetings

    Hello

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having query\issues related to certificate for VPN.

    For steps to generate a client certificate, see Generate and export certificates. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-wan/certificates-point-to-site#clientcert

    For steps to install a client certificate see Install client certificates. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-wan/install-client-certificates

    To view an installed client certificate, open Manage User Certificates. The client certificate is installed in Current User\Personal\Certificates.
