Configure ASA 5585 FW with Reverse Web proxy functions

Hello, I ran across a Security Technology Implementation Guide  (STIG) referencing the configuration of a Reverse Web Proxy configuration on a firewall. Is it possible to set one up on an ASA 5585X or any of the Cisco FW lines? Wouldn't you need to get a dedicated Cisco or third party appliance to do this and place it between the FW and the target web servers?

Hi,

 

    Cisco ASA does not allow that functionality, Cisco never had a Reverse proxy implementation available. Yes, usually these are dedicated hardware machines or modules, due to performance requirements as working at layer 7. F5 is one known vendor for providing good services:
