To add Duo two-factor authentication to your Citrix Gateway with nFactor you’ll configure the Duo Authentication Proxy as a secondary RADIUS authentication server. Primary authentication happens directly between the Citrix Gateway and your Active Directory, LDAP, or other identity store, which enables additional features such as AD password resets.
Before starting, make sure that Duo is compatible with your Citrix Gateway device. Log on to your Citrix Gateway via the web interface and verify that your Citrix Gateway firmware is version 12.1-51.16 or later and your Citrix Receiver or Citrix Workspace clients support 12.1 or later.
Also verify that your Citrix Gateway is licensed for Advanced Authentication Policy. As of Citrix Gateway release 13.0-67.x, the “Standard” license also includes nFactor for Gateway/VPN, while Citrix ADC requires an “Advanced” or “Premium” license to use nFactor.
1.Log in to the Duo Admin Panel and navigate to Applications.
2.Click Protect an Application and locate Citrix Gateway (NetScaler) in the applications list.
3.Click Protect to get your integration key, secret key, and API hostname. You’ll need this information to complete your setup.
4.Install the Duo Authentication Proxy
Download the most recent Authentication Proxy for Windows from https://dl.duosecurity.com/duoauthproxy-latest.exe.
Note that the actual filename will reflect the version.

8.You also can use Duo Authentication Proxy Manager to modify files.
The Duo Authentication Proxy Manager is a Windows utility for managing the Authentication Proxy installation on the Windows server where you install the Authentication Proxy. The Proxy Manager comes with Duo Authentication Proxy for Windows version 5.6.0 and later.

14.When using the [duo_only_client] configuration, the Authentication Proxy will ignore primary credentials and perform Duo factor authentication only.
15.Configure the Proxy for Your Citrix Gateway
you need to set up the Authentication Proxy to work with your Citrix Gateway or NetScaler. Create a [radius_server_iframe] section and add the properties listed below.
type: Set to citrix_netscaler_rfwebui. Requires Authentication Proxy v3.1.0 and NS build 12.1-51.16 or later.
api_host: Your API hostname (i.e. api-XXXXXXXX.duosecurity.com)
ikey: Your Duo Citrix NetScaler integration key
skey: Your Duo Citrix NetScaler secret key
failmode: Either safe or secure. safe-In the event that Duo’s service cannot be contacted, users’ authentication attempts will be permitted if primary authentication succeeds. (Default); secure-In the event that Duo’s service cannot be contacted, all users’ authentication attempts will be rejected.
radius_ip_1: A secret to be shared between the proxy and your (first) Citrix Gateway or NetScaler
radius_secret_1: A secret to be shared between the proxy and your (first) Citrix Gateway or NetScaler
radius_ip_X: Optional) IP addresses of additional Citrix Gateway or NetScaler management hosts (specified as radius_ip_2, radius_ip_3, etc.)
radius_secret_X: (Optional) Secrets shared with additional Citrix Gateways or NetScalers (specified as radius_secret_2, radius_secret_3, etc.)
port: Port on which to listen for incoming RADIUS Access Requests. If you have multiple RADIUS server sections you should use a unique port for each one. Default: 1812.
