By all appearances this ought to be easy: I’ve a YubiKey configured as a SmartCard and paired with my OS X consumer account. It really works tremendous in all respects: I can use it to authenticate to OS X, and my certificates work for S/MIME and internet server authentication.
I am now making an attempt to configure a VPN connection in Community settings to make use of a Yubikey certificates. The YubiKey certs all present up within the record of certificates I can use for authentication after I configure the VPN, but when I choose certainly one of themthe VPN connection fails with the error message “An sudden error occurred.”
I do know the issue is just not the VPN server: It authenticates tremendous if I exploit a certificates & key pair that is in my OS X keychain.
I do know the issue is just not the YubiKey: I can use it to authenticate to the identical VPN from a Home windows machine.
By strategy of elimination the issue should be both me or one thing about Catalina’s VPN subsystem, and we come to the crux of my query:
Has anybody really managed to get an IKEv2 VPN to authenticate utilizing a certificates on OS X Catalina, and if that’s the case are you able to please inform me the place I have to sacrifice the goat to make it work? 🙂
