ASA Employee VPN Monitoring

Posted on 2011-04-20

I have two questions regarding a Cisco ASA and VPN Monitoring

1.  There are a lot of employees whom have VPN credentials.  Is there a way for me to find out when the last time their credentials were used?

2.  Is there a way to receive an email alert each time an employee makes a VPN connection using AnyConnect? If yes, can their user name be included in the email?

    Are you logging authentications, or using an external back-end auth server such as ACS?  That's about the only way I'm aware of you can track when someone last authenticated.  I don't know of a way of generating the e-mail right out of the ASA.  Again, I think you would need some kind of management platform to provide that functionality.

    The ASA supports AAA and can use RADIUS and TACACS+ for accounting functions.  Receiving email alerts will depend on what implementation of the above you choose to use.

    Use kiwi syslog to catch your logs, even the free version has Conditional e-mail alerting

    add : logging class vpn trap informational

    so it will send informational logging for vpn connections, including the username.

    Build email filters in kiwi syslog.
