Certificate based authentication for Meraki VPN

Hi does anyone know if user or device certificates can be used for authentication with Meraki VPN?  With the Windows client or a third party VPN client?  It looks like Meraki Wifi APs support EAP-TLS and can use ssl certificates for authentication but I can't find anything about VPN.


I appreciate any help you can offer!

As @Inderdeep mentions, the Cisco AnyConnect client has certificate-based support.  Note that Cisco AnyConnect is an additional licence fee, but it is not expensive.


You'll also want to generate a VPN profile configured to use TLS authentication.  You can use my online tool to do this.


One caveat though. You cannot implement cert-based auth alone. You have to use cert + user creds on Meraki.
