Need an authentication solution


In one of my networking classes we working on designing a small data center. First here is the preliminary design:


As you can see in the diagram the networks will be seperated into 4 different VLANs. On the Cisco ASA SSL VPN will be configured so certain end users who login will only be allowed access to certain VLANs based on who they are. We will be running a RADIUS server that the VPN will use.

So an example scenario: end user student in Building 13 Network (VLAN 13) log into the VPN, we only want to give them access to VLAN 15 and no other VLAN. end user instructor on the WLAN network (VLAN 16) log into the VPN and we want to give them access to only management (VLAN 17), Production (VLAN 14) and no other VLAN.

How can this type of authentication/access control be done? Would it be done on the ASA or Layer 3 switch?

Hello Jerry,

It definetly can be done with both of the devices,

I think  downloadable ACLs should do it here!
