Abstract: This document provides security guidance for network administrator to assist in the initial out-of-the-box configuration of Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) 5500 Next Generation Firewalls (software version 9.1). The guidance provided is based on a basic and simplistic security policy for common network architectures; however, the concepts discussed may be applied to complex policies and networks. It is the responsibility of an organization to develop a security policy that meets all of their specific needs. The topics overed are: secure management, interface configuration, auditing and logging, access control and hardening services provided by the Cisco ASA firewall.
