SMS two-factor authentication for SSL VPN

In this recipe, you will create an SSL VPN with two-factor authentication consisting of a username, password, and an SMS token.

When a user attempts to connect to this SSL VPN, they are prompted to enter their username and password. After successfully entering their credentials, they receive an SMS message on their mobile phone containing a 6-digit number (called the FortiToken code). They must also enter this number to get access to the internal network and the Internet.

Although this recipe uses the FortiGuard Messaging Service, it will also work with any compatible SMS service you configure as an SMS Gateway.
