Trying to create a 2 Factor Authentication for users to access data remotely.

Here my scenario:

We have a Watchguard to VPN into the network - If we use it's internal DB to store authentication information.

Then use Active Directory credentials to RDP or access files on a server.

Would that count?


No, With two factor you are authenticated by two of three factors (there may be more but these are the three most common).

  1. Something you have (RSA key/Smart Card/etc)
  2. Something you know (password)
  3. Something you are (Fingerprint/biometrics)

Also I can say that a security auditor would probably not be pleased at storing authentication info in any way.
