We have user identification working nicely using user ID agents on a few of our active directory domain members.
I've been looking at MS Direct Access (and formerly UAG) and it seems that a DA implementation would show all connected users as having the same source IP address and therefore user ID. (The private IP address of the DA server.)
Do PA firewalls have a way of identifying which user the traffic inside the DA 'tunnel' is from?
I guess what I'm probably asking for is a 'DA Server User Agent' in the same way that there is a MS Terminal Server Agent which does a similar job.
I'm thinking that you might try to monitor it before it gets to the DA server. There should be a way to map the user public IP address to their user-id, e.g. if there are logs somewhere in either: DA server, AD, some other security tool, or similar, you could push that into user-id. Not simple or elegant though. I wouldn't try to monitor the traffic within the tunnel directly, but anything traversing your firewall going to the IP address of the DA server.
