There is no loopback interface on the ASA at the moment. Is there a reason you want to use a loopback interface?

Thanks for your reply. Outside of the ASA will connect to our internet gateway router and to terminate vpn tunnel on ASA i have to assign one public ip on outside of the ASA and one public ip on inside of our internet gateway router.

I am planing to use private ips between outside of my ASA and inside of our internet router. In this case i will assign public ip to loopback of my ASA and terminate tunnel on this loopback.

The ASA doesn't allow for loopback interfaces at the moment, so that won't be possible.
