Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.1X47-D10.


An authentication table is generated by polling Active Directory domain controllers for source identity information about active users. Each entry in the table correlates an authenticated user with an IP address and associated user groups. That information is used for matching in IP-based firewall policies. The user information must be retrieved from the table before policy lookup can proceed and traffic is allowed to pass through the firewall.
