Cisco FIREWALL 2.0: Configuring Cisco ASA Management Features
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
It is important to understand how to deploy basic management features on the Cisco ASA. These device management features include configuring: the device name, the system time, event and session logging, the device software, and the device licensing. This course identifies how to select management access choices, procedures, input parameters, and design and implementation guidelines. It also explains how to configure and verify time settings and support for NTP and logging settings and NetFlow on the Cisco ASA. The course covers the file system and configuration management, as well as software and activation key management on the Cisco ASA .
You can access the Cisco ASA management interface locally, using the console connection, or you can access it remotely over an IP network. Configuring remote management access in a secure fashion is of paramount importance to ensure the integrity of the ASA in a possibly hostile environment, such as when management paths use an untrusted network. This course describes how to configure remote management access to the ASA, and how to configure and use administrator authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) features. The course concludes with guidelines and procedures on troubleshooting the configured management access functions.
