The video takes you through the Cisco ASA AnyConnect VPN abilities to gather VPN client information using Hostscan and basic Endpoint Assessment features. We will be deploying a Hostscan agent as part of an AnyConnect Posture module, and creating a pre-login policy from device registry and OS checks to categorize the endpoint and allow or deny VPN access accordingly. The video finishes with enabling Host Scan extension as a preparation to the next lab video.

Thank you for the videos, they are very helpful. I am trying to find a way to detect/gather information about end users computers' name, public IP, SSL VPN duration. Basically pretty much everything in sh vpn-sessiondb details anyconnect , plus computer name, whether a domain or personal computer (without restrict anything at the beginning) So I can start to build new access-list and policies.

We currently use ASA5540 with failover mode. We authenticate our end users with SecureAuth certificate. The main goal is to restrict non-domain computers but we want to identify them first. We have a Syslog server, I am trying to pull this information to the Solarwinds Orion server via SNMP traps.

Do you know if there is a way to do that?

Thank you


DAP should give you a lot of information. For the domain computer check, we don't believe there is a wuick way to do that but to do some kind of certificate or registry value check.
