Can TACACS+ "read" VPN groups from a Cisco ASA 5510 appliance?

Hello Everyone,

I have an issue here. I have created various ASA 5510 VPN groups with access to different subnets within our internal network. The filters work fine, but now I am concerned that users with access to more subnets will simply provide his PCF to someone who should not have access to that subnet. Since we have a TACACS server, I was wondering if we could bind users to specific VPN groups, so that if they attempt to access the VPN from an unauthorized VPN group, access will fail. In other words, can TACACS "read" the VPN group information from the ASA, and use that for authentication in addition to user credentials.

I don't know if it can do what your asking, but couldn't you do what you're wanting to do with individual user-level filtering?  The ASA can do that.  In other words, rather than applying an ACL to a group policy that gets inherited by user accounts, just apply the individual ACL's to the user accounts directly.  Would that not achieve the effect you're looking for?

Batry,

We were thinking about user level filtering, but we would rather use groups. Does user level filtering work along side e.g. RADIUS? In other words, we authenticate to a RADIUS server (actually an RSA server). Can we authenticate users in the local database to the RADIUS server? If that is the only way to do this, I guess we have to.

BTW, thanks for the reply.
