FortiAuthticator 5.0.0

Looks like 5.0.0 firmware for the FortiAuthenticator is out, with a few nice features, like better guest portals, a bunch of RADIUS improvements, more Fortigate-like CLI, etc.  Should finally be able to set the DNS Subject Alt Name when creating certs, too.


Not having a lab setup with a FAC, I won't be upgrading till were past the 0.0 version by a bit!

Anybody tried it yet?  How did it go?

Creating user certs with SANs for my FGTs worked for me; however you will have to import the certs into the FGT's as PKCS #12 with a passphrase, else they will not import.  Once imported, they can be used as the certificates for the Admin Web GUI of your FWs.

Anybody using FortiAuthenticator 5.0.0 yet?  Has it seemed stable and secure?


It has some features I really would like to use, but a .0.0 version which is only at build 12 makes me pretty nervous.


@theFWdude,  Do you mean you used the FAC 5.0.0 to sign FGT certs with SANs and it worked (but required importing to FGT's as PKCS #12), or are you describing a way to do this with FAC 4.3.x, or some other CA signing?
