User-ID doubt

I have some problems with user identification and I'm very confused about how it works.

In the case that we use User-ID agent with AD. Is it the following process correct?

1.A user makes a logon in PC-A , with his domain credentials.

2.An event is created in Security log (ID 4768/4769/4770) "LOGON USER-A -> PC-A"

3.User-ID agent check the security log every 1 second for new events and asociates PC-A -> USER-A

4.Paloalto Firewall detects trafic from PC-A and query User-ID agent for Ip-user mapping.

5.Paloalto Firewall queries Agent every 5 seconds to check any changes in ip-user mapping.

.... 10 minutes later...

6. USER-A closes his session.

7.USER-B makes a logon in PC-A, with his domain credentials

8.An event is created in Security log (ID 4768/4769/4770) "LOGON USER-B -> PC-A"

9.User-ID agent checks the security log every 1 second for new events and asociates PC-B -> USER-A ....or is it neccesary wait till age-out timer?

10. Paloalto Firewall queries Agent every 5 seconds to check any changes in ip-user mapping and detects the new ip-user mapping.

Re: User-ID doubt

Hi,

When user B logon PC A by domain user, the AD will create a new event which trigger the agent to create a new entry. So when PA firewall try to get a new delta mapping it will get a new mapping.

As each IP can only have one user mapped to it the box will update the record with thenew info.
