User Authentication

User authentication is a process that determines whether users are who they claim to be, and verifies the privileges assigned to users. When you require users to authenticate, you can create policies specific to traffic from specific users and groups, and you can see user names in log messages and reports for better visibility into the traffic generated by users on your network.

You can configure the Firebox as an authentication server or configure it to use one of the other supported authentication servers.
