user-id in the DMZ zone

user-id in the DMZ zone


I have user-id enable on the trust zone and it works fine. I also have a DMZ zone and was wondering if it was ok to enable it on that zone? I know best practice is to not enable it on the outside zone, but we have many dmz to trust security policies and I would like to see in the reports some of the user accounts that are sourcing in the DMZ. Some of those DMZ servers in the DMZ are also open to the public.

Any thoughts?

I would say yes but it depends on you network. As long as your DMZ zone has private IP's, you should be ok.
