How ASA forwarding traffic to AIP-SSM

Hi All,

Can someone help how ASA device forwarding traffic to AIP-SSM? I'm not taking abt Configuration part like Class-map, policy-map and service policy....want to understand the traffic flow from ASA once traffic matched with ACL to AIP-SSM.

From one of Cisoc document, understood that the module using a Cisco Propietary protocol for communicating with ASA appliance.

================================================================================================================

FYR from Cisco Website:

Q. How does the Cisco ASA AIP-SSM plug into and communicate with the appliance?

A. The Cisco ASA AIP-SSM plugs directly into the SSM slot in the Cisco ASA appliance's chassis. This provides a direct connection to the appliance's backplane. Once the module is installed, a proprietary protocol runs over the bus and controls data flow and messaging between the module and appliance.

Hi Mohammad,

Thanks for your time and reply.

It means, the data traffic between ASA and AIP-SSM happens in the hardware level ( through Backplane)?
