Cisco Secure Desktop (CSD) extends the security of SSL VPN technology. CSD provides a separate partition on a user's workstation for session activity. This vault area is encrypted during sessions and completely removed at the end of an SSL VPN session.
Note: In this section we would be discussing only the host scan component.
CSD comprises several components:
Host Scan (Basic and Advanced with remediation capabilities)
Host Emulation detection
Ensure that you meet these requirements before you attempt to enable CSD and configure it:
Requirements for theASA device
Cisco ASA software Version 7.1.1 or later
Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) release 5.1.1 or later
Note: CSD Version 3.2 supports on ASA Version 8.x only
CSD operates with SSL VPN technology, so the Clientless, Thin-Client, or SVC should be activated before the configuration of CSD.
