FWSM Configuration with Virtual Firewalls

I want to implement two layers of firewalls, using two FWSM contexts. I know that two virtual firewalls cannot be cascaded (usupported design), but in my case, both contexts do not share any vlan, so it is not pure cascading. Here is what I would like to install :


The inside interface of FW1 is VLAN200 and the inside interface of FW2 is VLAN400.

Is this configuration suported ?

Thank you

I think its possible without any issues. At hte same time you can now configure a single FWSM to behave as multiple virtual firewalls.
