I recently found two unopened big white envelopes. Aside from the Cisco logo, serial numbers and some bar codes, all the envelopes say is: ASA5500 - SC - 10 DESC: ASA5500 10 Security Contexts License
The envelopes are still sealed. I don't want to open the envelopes in case this turns out to be something that we might want to just sell.
I googled this and obviously they are some kind of licenses for the ASA 5500 but even with google I couldn't get any specifics that really told me what I have in my hands. Can anyone explain what these are?
You can look at a security context as a virtual firewall. Each virtual firewall can have it own configuration and is independent from the other virtual firewalls.
