SecureAuth IdP & Citrix

Citrix NetScaler Gateway provides users with secure remote access to XenApp, XenDesktop, and XenMobile applications across a range of devices including laptops, desktops, thin clients, tablets, and smart phones. SecureAuth IdP can be integrated with NetScaler to ensure the verification of the user's identity before entering the secure network.

Citrix NetScaler products primarily offer load balancing features, but also enable firewall, proxy, and VPN functions for a suite of network security. SecureAuth IdP can integrate with Citrix NetScaler using SAML, RADIUS authentication, and certificate-based authentication. Because SecureAuth IdP is so versatile in its authentication and assertion abilities, it can easily and safely deliver users to the device to then gain entry into other resources.

When using SAML integrations, SecureAuth IdP authenticates the user and then asserts them with a signed SAML assertion and certificate to gain entry into Citrix. Citrix accepts the user based its established trust with SecureAuth IdP (through configuration).

For certificate-based authentication scenarios, SecureAuth IdP enables easy certificate enrollment that does not require any manual or tedious labor for the customer. The user can securely enroll for a certificate before attempting access to Citrix, or Citrix can redirect users to SecureAuth IdP if a valid certificate is not present at login. Once the certificate is acquired, users can access Citrix and its protected resources based on its established trust with SecureAuth IdP (through certificates).

SecureAuth IdP can also act as a RADIUS Server, authenticating users via the RADIUS protocol to securely enable access to a RADIUS Client (Citrix, for example).
