A firewall user is a network user who must provide a username and password for authentication when initiating a connection across the firewall. Firewall user authentication lets you define firewall users and create policies that require the users to authenticate themselves through one of two authentication schemes pass-through authentication or web authentication. User role firewall policies can be integrated with firewall authentication both to authenticate users and to retrieve username and role information. The information is mapped to the IP address of the traffic, stored in the firewall authentication table, and used for user role firewall policy enforcement.

Applicable Version: All


The Users feature allows you to manage users that is create, edit, delete users and allocate them to a particular group. Users can be created locally or imported from an Authentication Server. The Users page displays the details of the users, such as user name, group name, authentication, login status, IP/MAC bind details and content filtering status. This page also displays the count of total number of users that are logged in.
