ge0_0Command and ControlSSH/HTTPS to the mgmt IP
ge0_1Sensing InterfaceAll inspected network traffic
sy0_1Backplane Control Interface127.0.0.1:23 if a session is open from the ASA

ge0_0 maps to the external ethernet port on the front face of the IPS module

ge0_1 is a backplane interface that connects the AIP-SSM to the ASA in order to receive through traffic to inspect

sy0_1 is a control interface used for reverse telnet and system communication between the ASA and IPS

Note

Management0/0 on the ASA has no correlation to ge0_0 on the IPS module. Management0/0 is the physical management port on the face of the ASA. ge0_0 is the physical management port on the face of the AIP-SSM.

In the show traffic output from the host ASA, Internal-Control0/0 maps to sy0_1 on the IPS. Internal-Data0/0 on the ASA maps to ge0_1 on the IPS.
