ASA SSL VPN Tunnel Group Group-URL and Group-Alias selection methods

SSL VPN users (both AnyConnect/SVC client and Clientless) can choose which tunnel group (Connection Profile is the object name used in Adaptive Security Device Manager ASDM ) to access using these different methods:

  • group-url
  • group-alias (tunnel group drop-down list on login page)
  • certificate-maps, if using certificates

The following article describes how to use the group-alias and the group-url methods of selecting the connection profile.

Note: The connection profile (tunnel group) holds the initial VPN session parameters such as AAA server methods, login page customization, IP pools, etc. Each connection profile has an associated group-policy which controls most of the authorization permissions/entitlements for the VPN session (Banner, ACLs, portal customization, session timers, bookmarks, etc).

For detailed information on how the ASA 5000 VPN series performs VPN policy enforcement please refer to .
