Xauth and VPN

Is xauth synonymous with VPNs? If I want to authenticate my users' access to an SSL server inside my PIX, can I utilize extended authentication via SecureID without requiring a VPN client/tunnel connection?

Re: Xauth and VPN

The term xauth is generally applied with VPN's, but you can certainly do user authentication for traffic going through a PIX without a VPN in place.

See http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/110/atp52.html

Note the PIX will only authenticate using HTTP, FTP or Telnet type traffic, so your users will have to use that traffic to authenticate, then they'll be allowed to use SSL to go through.
