“Certificate” tab

This tab will allow you to manage the user’s x509 certificate.

Since the PKI does not have a certificate authority by default, you will need to create one in order to manage user’s certificates: go to the menu Objects\ Certificates and PKI\ Add\Add a root authority.

This certificate will be useful in two cases: SSL authentication and VPN access to the firewall with a mobile IPSec client. This certificate can also be used by other applications.

“Member of these groups” tab

This tab allows including the user in one or several groups:

Click on Add, a new line will appear at the top of the table.

Select the arrow to the right of the field. A drop-down menu will display the list of existing groups. Click on the group of your choice. It will be added to your table.

 

To remove a group, select it and click on Delete.

A user attached to several departments, for example, may belong to numerous groups. The maximum number is 50 groups per user.
