Security Contexts

Hi team,

Will you provide a Good Document for " Security contexts " implementation on Cisco ASA 5510 Firewall with guidelines to implement..

Is there any license feature do i need to implement..
If there is license for ASA 5510 firewall then how can i get the feature set license

Here is a link to basic configuration guide on how to configure multiple contexts on the ASA firewall:

Here is a link to document that explains how the ASA classifies the packet that comes in to a particular context:

This is particularly important when you are sharing interfaces between multiple contexts.

I would suggest you move to multiple mode when you have a maintanence window scheduled as it requires reboot of the ASA.

You will need Security Plus license to enable the security contexts on Cisco ASA 5510.

Before deciding on the implementation of security contexts I would verify what list of the disabled functionalities when using security context. For example VPN (SSL or IPsec) doesn’t mix with security contexts but there are many more commands that are enabled in single context only. You could use the command reference guide for that.
