SYNOPSIS

Enables and configures one-time password (OTP) authentication for DirectAccess (DA) users.

SYNTAX

Enable-DAOtpAuthentication [-RadiusServer <String>] [-ComputerName <String>] [-RadiusPort <UInt16>]
 [-CAServer <String[]>] [-CertificateTemplateName <String>] [-SharedSecret <String>]
 [-UserSecurityGroupName <String>] [-Force] [-PassThru] [-SigningCertificateTemplateName <String>]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Enable-DAOtpAuthentication cmdlet enables one-time password (OTP) authentication for DirectAccess (DA) users, and configures OTP settings.

EXAMPLES

Example 1

PS C:\>Enable-DAOtpAuthentication -RadiusServer rsa.corp.contoso.com -SharedSecret abcd123$ -CAServers dc1.corp.contoso.com\corp-DC1-CA -CertificateTemplateName DAOTPLogon -PassThru -Force
OtpStatus               : Enabled 
CAServers               : {dc1.corp.contoso.com\corp-DC1-CA} 
CertificateTemplateName : DAOTPLogon 
RadiusServer            : {rsa.corp.contoso.com} 
UserSecuriotyGroupName  : 

If the **Force** parameter is not used, then the DA administrator is presented with the following prompt.
PS C:\>Enable-DAOtpAuthentication -RadiusServer rsa.corp.contoso.com -SharedSecret abcd123$ -CAServers dc1.corp.contoso.com\corp-DC1-CA -CertificateTemplateName DAOTPLogon -PassThru
OtpStatus               : Enabled 
CAServers               : {dc1.corp.contoso.com\corp-DC1-CA} 
CertificateTemplateName : DAOTPLogon 
RadiusServer            : {rsa.corp.contoso.com} 
UserSecuriotyGroupName  : 

Enabling OTP authentication will change DirectAccess user authentication settings. Do you want to continue? 
[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help  (default is "Y"):

This example enables OTP authentication for DA users while setting the following.

-- rsa.corp.contoso.com as RADIUS or OTP server used to verify users OTP credentials.

-- dc1.corp.contoso.com\corp-DC1-CA as CA server used to enroll smart card logon short lived certificates.

-- DAOTPLogon as enroll smart card logon short lived certificates template.

All of the above settings should be set up in advance before the DA administrator can configure OTP for DA. UserSecurityGroupName is an optional setting and thus was not set which means that the two-factor authentication exemption feature is Disabled.

This cmdlet can add one new OTP Radius server each time it runs, for additional handling of Radius servers for OTP please use RemoteAccessRadius cmdlets. Note: This cmdlet will enable OTP if two-factor user authentication and computer certificates were already enabled using the Set-DAServer cmdlet. If PKI and two-factor user authentication are disabled, then this cmdlet fails. In addition enabling OTP authentication does not disable smart card or any other two-factor authentication available to the DA user.

Example 2

PS C:\>Enable-DAOtpAuthentication -CertificateTemplateName DAOTPLogon_v2 -PassThru -Force
OtpStatus               : Enabled 
CAServers               : {dc1.corp.contoso.com\corp-DC1-CA} 
CertificateTemplateName : DAOTPLogon_v2 
RadiusServer            : {rsa.corp.contoso.com} 
UserSecuriotyGroupName  :

This example enables OTP authentication for DA users while keeping the OTP settings for RadiusServer and CAServers that were set before OTP authentication was disabled. The CertificateTemplateName setting was updated to the new value.

The new smart card logon short lived certificates template should be created before running this cmdlet.
