Which technology, configured on the Cisco ASA, allows Active Directory authentication credentials to be applied automatically to web forms that require authentication for clientless SSL connections?
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D.
The correct answer is C. user credentials obtained during authentication.
Cisco ASA (Adaptive Security Appliance) is a security device that provides several security features such as firewall, VPN, and content security. One of its functionalities is the ability to provide secure clientless SSL VPN connections. Clientless SSL VPNs allow users to securely access web applications without requiring any software installation on the client machine.
When a user accesses a web application through a clientless SSL VPN connection, the Cisco ASA acts as a proxy between the user's web browser and the web server. The ASA intercepts the user's web requests and applies the necessary security policies to protect the user's connection and data.
To provide seamless authentication for clientless SSL VPN connections, the Cisco ASA can be configured to use the user credentials obtained during authentication against Active Directory. This feature is known as Single Sign-On (SSO).
SSO allows users to log in to the Cisco ASA with their Active Directory credentials, and these credentials are automatically applied to any web forms that require authentication for clientless SSL connections. This eliminates the need for users to enter their credentials multiple times for different web applications.
In summary, the correct answer is C. user credentials obtained during authentication. This technology enables SSO for clientless SSL VPN connections on the Cisco ASA, allowing users to authenticate once and access multiple web applications securely.
