OpenVPN how disable CSR?

I'm going with connection level authentication, so as soon as the ssl connection is established the user is authenticated.

As a result I want to disable csrs(certificate signing requests) from the client. Otherwise any client could just submit a csr and be able to connect.

How do I disable certificate signing requests from the client?

Not exactly sure what you mean here. OpenVPN clients would not be submitting CSRs as a part of their authentication process, unless you are referring to actual people asking you to verify and sign their certificates. I think you are simply referring to the authentication process, and as such, CSRs are not a part of that process. Perhaps you would enjoy reviewing the PKI finger-puppet tutorials at
