Hi,

I am looking at purchasing a Cisco ASA 5510 - Question re EZVPN Capabilities....can i base acl's for fine grained control on active directory groups? I know i can tie in for authentication using IAS, but would like to have network access for dial in users based on AD group membership rather than maintained on the firewall itself....

Thanks!

hmmm i know i can do the Authentication backed onto AD, my question is more based around that member of attribute - can i control my acl's based on this attrib? If member of ""GROUP"" apply ACL 10, if member of ""GROUP 2"" apply acl 2...etc

yes you can, its very easy to setup dynamic ACL's based on any object. For example i have certain ACL's setup just to block access to certain servers when certain users connect on VPN

oh that is unreal - basically what i am trying to get to is a point where everything is based around AD - so if i can have my ASA EZVPN users logging in to VPN and only being able to access specific servers or even ports based on the ACL and their group membership, then i will be a very very happy lad
Thank you very much - thats exactly what i was after

@ JayJay70 ->
You would assign a GroupPolicy based on AD Group-Membership. Problem - if you are not member if group A(example) - the user is still authenticated and assigned the default group policy. The only way I could think of was a over-restrictive "denay any any" policy as default which would be overridden of another group-policy which the ASA maps via a LDAP-Attribute Map you call when you  configure the AAA-Server. (exactly the screenshot "akalbfelll" uploaded in the "accepted solution".  
I configure a VPN RAS authenticatin based on OU, not group with thsi configuratin I was able the not-authenticat users which where not in that specific OU.
Somehow not a very pretty solution ...
