duo_only_client prevents the Authentication Proxy service from starting.
Version 5.0.1 - September 3, 2020
- Corrects an issue causing incorrect
Message-Authenticator values when configured as a RADIUS pass-through attribute.
Version 5.0.0 - August 17, 2020
The Authentication Proxy binaries for Windows have been migrated from 32-bit to 64-bit. Duo supports installing the Authentication Proxy on Windows Server 2012 and later, which are 64-bit operating systems.
The installation file path has changed accordingly, from
C:\Program Files (x86)\Duo Security Authentication Proxy in previous versions to
C:\Program Files\Duo Security Authentication Proxy. If your
authproxy.cfg file contains any references to the 32-bit installation path, for example, if you specified the absolute path to your SSL certificate file, the v5.0.0 installer updates those references to the new installation destination.
This change has no effect on Authentication Proxy releases for Linux.
Primary LDAP authentication with
[ad_client] now supports integrated Windows authentication via SSPI using both NTLMv2 and Kerberos with the
Primary LDAP authentication with
[ad_client] now supports LDAP Signing plus LDAP Encryption (also known as "Sign and Seal") for the

[ad_client] authentication type is
sspi (Windows integrated) and LDAP account username/password are also provided.
Now consistently respects the order of the factors specified via the
factors optional setting for
RADIUS authentication now handles MPPE responses properly per RFC 2548.
Message-Authenticator verification succeeds when a packet includes multiple non-adjacent attributes of the same type.
Fixed an issue where incorrectly encoding attributes in RADIUS packets may have resulted in the Authentication Proxy failing to process further RADIUS packets, causing a Denial of Service (DoS) condition.
Version 4.0.2 - July 22, 2020
- Updated the embedded Python version to 3.8.4, to address Python CVE-2020-1552. We urge that customers running v4.0.0 or v4.0.1 upgrade to this version.
