Single NIC for http web publish rule - TMG

Hi discussion at work.

I suggest just 1 NIC for TMG  in DMZ is the most secure - We have an ASA firewall

Im been told that its more secure with 2 x NICs  - 1 dmz and 1 internal (im presuming internal means that (internal LAN) - then a NAT on the TMG

How is this more secure - is not "MORE" secure with just 1 NIC in the DMZ? - then publishing rule proxies the connection to inside LAN?

I'm not sure exactly what your setup is, or how you're trying to leverage the TMG server.  Can you provide a diagram?

Is the "DMZ" just an interface off of the ASA, and you also have an inside and an outside interface?

Internet
   |
ASA--DMZ
   |
Inside


Traditionally, I had the ISA/TMG server as a second firewall:

Internet
   |
ASA
   |
DMZ  (Considered the "inside" interface on the ASA)
   |
TMG
   |
Inside

IMO, the second topology provides additional security, because any internet traffic has to traverse two different firewall platforms to reach the inside network.  You also get to use the TMG as a proxy server for your internal clients.

You can't use TMG as a firewall with a single NIC, only proxy server.... so 2 NICs is more secure.
