Information About the CSC SSM

The ASA 5500 series adaptive security appliance supports the CSC SSM, which runs Content Security and Control software. The CSC SSM provides protection against viruses, spyware, spam, and other unwanted traffic by scanning the FTP, HTTP, POP3, and SMTP packets that you configure the adaptive security appliance to send to it.

Licensing Requirements for the CSC SSM

The following table shows the licensing requirements for this feature:

Model
License Requirement

ASA 5505

No support.

ASA 5510

Optional licenses: 5, 10, or 20 contexts.

ASA 5540

Base License: 2 contexts.

Optional licenses: 5, 10, 20, or 50 contexts.

For the ASA 5510, 5520, and 5540:

With a Base License, the features enabled by default are SMTP virus scanning, POP3 virus scanning and content filtering, webmail virus scanning, HTTP file blocking, FTP virus scanning and file blocking, logging, and automatic updates.

With a Security Plus License, the additional features enabled by default are SMTP anti-spam, SMTP content filtering, POP3 anti-spam, URL blocking, and URL filtering.


Prerequisites for the CSC SSM

The CSC SSM has the following prerequisites:

A CSC SSM card must be installed in the adaptive security appliance.

A Product Authorization Key (PAK) for use in registering the CSC SSM.

Activation keys that you receive by e-mail after you register the CSC SSM.

The management port of the CSC SSM must be connected to your network to allow management and automatic updates of the CSC SSM software.

The CSC SSM management port IP address must be accessible by the hosts used to run ASDM.

You must obtain the following information to use in configuring the CSC SSM:

The CSC SSM management port IP address, netmask, and gateway IP address.

DNS server IP address.

HTTP proxy server IP address (needed only if your security policies require the use of a proxy server for HTTP access to the Internet).

Domain name and hostname for the CSC SSM.

An e-mail address and an SMTP server IP address and port number for e-mail notifications.

IP addresses of hosts or networks that are allowed to manage the CSC SSM. The IP addresses for the CSC SSM management port and the adaptive security appliance management interface can be in different subnets.

Password for the CSC SSM.

Guidelines and Limitations

This section includes the guidelines and limitations for this feature.

Context Mode Guidelines

Supported in single and multiple context modes. In multiple-context mode, all panes under the CSC Setup node are available only in the admin context. You can restore the default password only in multiple-context mode in the system context.

Firewall Mode Guidelines

Supported in routed and transparent firewall modes.

Failover Guidelines

Does not support sessions in Stateful Failover. The CSC SSM does not maintain connection information, and therefore cannot provide the failover unit with the required information. The connections that a CSC SSM is scanning are dropped when the adaptive security appliance in which the CSC SSM is installed fails. When the standby adaptive security appliance becomes active, it forwards the scanned traffic to the CSC SSM and the connections are reset.

IPv6 Guidelines

Does not support IPv6.

Model Guidelines

Supported on the ASA 5510, ASA 5520, and ASA 5540 only.

Default Settings

Table 57-1 lists the default settings for the CSC SSM.

CSC SSM Setup

The CSC Setup Wizard lets you configure basic operational parameters for the CSC SSM. You must complete this wizard at least once before you can configure options in each screen separately. After you complete the CSC Setup Wizard, you can modify each screen individually without using this wizard again.

Additionally, you cannot access the panes under Configuration > Trend Micro Content Security > CSC Setup or under Monitoring > Trend Micro Content Security > Content Security until you complete the CSC Setup Wizard. If you try to access these panes before completing this wizard, a dialog box appears and lets you access the wizard directly to complete the configuration.

This section includes the following topics:

Activation/License

IP Configuration

Host/Notification Settings

Management Access Host/Networks

Password

Restoring the Default Password

Wizard Setup

Activation/License

The Activation/License pane lets you review or renew activation codes for the CSC SSM Base License and the Plus License.

You can use ASDM to configure CSC licenses only once each for the two licenses. Renewed license activation codes are downloaded automatically with scheduled software updates.
