Configure Firewalls to Redistribute User Mapping Information

Every firewall that enforces user-based policy requires user mapping information. However, a large-scale network where numerous firewalls directly query the mapping information sources requires both the firewalls and sources to use considerable resources. To improve resource efficiency, you can configure some firewalls to acquire mapping information through redistribution instead of direct querying. Redistribution also enables the firewalls to enforce user-based policies when users rely on local sources for authentication (for example, regional directory services) but need access to remote resources (for example, global data center applications).
