About This Guide

This preface introduces Cisco ASA Series Firewall ASDM Configuration Guide and includes the following sections:

Document Objectives

The purpose of this guide is to help you configure the firewall features for ASA using ASDM. This guide does not cover every feature, but describes only the most common configuration scenarios.

This guide applies to the Cisco ASA series. Throughout this guide, the term “ASA” applies generically to supported models, unless specified otherwise.


NoteASDM supports many ASA versions. The ASDM documentation and online help includes all of the latest features supported by the ASA. If you are running an older version of ASA software, the documentation might include features that are not supported in your version. Similarly, if a feature was added into a maintenance release for an older major or minor version, then the ASDM documentation includes the new feature even though that feature might not be available in all later ASA releases. Please refer to the feature history table for each chapter to determine when features were added. For the minimum supported version of ASDM for each ASA version, seeCisco ASA Series Compatibility.
