I am trying to put input into the design of our department network. We have the following hardware and I'd like to know how to integrate them together for the best fit/practice.
2 x 5520 ASA, 4250 IDS and Cacs appliance ADE1010. I am basically looking for a system that validates users before allowing them on the system and utilizes the firewall to protect the system.
Some external or remote Users will access a webserver application remotely through Frame relay in through the 3945 rtr. Other remote users will access that same application through internet DSL via a 2921 rtr.
Management Users will VPN into the system
I want everyone to be validated and I want the security to be installed where it is more effective.
Local users will access through another 2921.
Note we already have all this equipment. Eventually I hope to get a network person to configure but I want to be able to have meaningful input
