Cisco ASA Documentation by Release

This section lists the ASA series documentation by release. This section includes the CLI and GUI documentation for each version.


Note ASDM 6.0 and later supports many ASA versions. We include the ASDM documentation with the ASA version when that version of ASDM was introduced; for example 8.4/6.4, 8.3/6.3, and so on. 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 ASA 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 configuration guide chapter to determine when features were added. For the minimum supported version of ASDM for each ASA version, see Cisco ASA Compatibility.

Cisco Active Directory Agent

The Cisco Active Directory Agent runs as a separate application from the ASA. The Cisco Active Directory Agent is used as part of the Identity Firewall feature, which was released in the ASA 8.4 release.

The Identity Firewall feature provides more granular access control based on user identities. You can configure access control and security policies based on user names and groups rather than through source IP addresses. The ASA applies the security policies based on an association of IP addresses to Windows Active Directory login information and reports events based on the mapped user names instead of network IP addresses.

The Identity Firewall integrates with Window Active Directory in conjunction with an external Active Directory (AD) Agent that provides the actual identity mapping. The ASA uses Windows Active Directory as the source to retrieve the current user identity information for specific IP addresses.
