Interview the IAO and/or site wireless device administrator and inspect a sample (3-4) of site devices. Review VPN client specification sheets and verify the VPN client support CAC authentication. Mark as a finding if the VPN does not support CAC authentication or the client is not configured to require CAC authentication.
