Newbie: TOTP authentication works from radclient but not from external Radius client (Cisco ASA)

Hello!

I can’t get the RADIUS authentication to FreePBX (with PrivacyIDEA backend
to work). I have a TOTP token which authenticates using the following
command: “echo “User-Name=user, User-Password=pin245734” | radclient -sx
localhost auth testing123”. Yet when my Cisco ASA attempts to authenticate
this same user I get the following errors in the FreeRADIUS log (the full
log is attached):

  • rlm_perl: privacyIDEA request failed: 400 BAD REQUEST
  • rlm_perl: Added pair Reply-Message = ERR905: Missing parameter: ‘pass’

I’ve also attached the PrivacyIDEA Debug file. Also a 2nd Debug file from
the radclient test which is successful.
As a newbie I’d certainly appreciate any help! I’m really impressed with
what I’ve seen so far with PrivacyIDEA - now I just have to get it
connected to my ASA [which I’ve connected to FreeRADIUS & Google
Authenticator open-source in the past]…
Thanks again!
P.S. I followed
https://privacyidea.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installation/ubuntu.html for
my setup.

Hello Dave,

you did right to check with the radclient tool.

The Reply-Message “Missing parameter” is directly from privacyIDEA.
It states, that it does not get the parameter pass.
So obviously the RADIUS protocol contains an empty password or no
password?!?

You can verify this e.g. with wireshark.

And I can not help you WHY the RADIUS client does not send the
User-Password parameter.

You might have configurd CHAP or MSCHAP!
You need to configure PAP.

Kind regards

Cornelius,
Thanks for your help! After troubleshooting this further I found out
that on the Cisco ASA when the command “password-management” is used then
the RADIUS requests to FreeRADIUS must be using MS-CHAP instead of PAP.
Once I removed that “password-management” command I was able to use
two-factor authentication for the ASA VPN’s, through FreeRADIUS to
PrivacyIDEA.
I appreciate your great product!
