cisco mod1700-vpn networking firewall encryption accelerator

Choosing to use the Cisco mod1700-VPN networking firewall encryption accelerator is a great way to add extra security to your network.

This accelerator can be used to provide support for DES, 3DES, and AES IPSec encryption.

You can also choose to configure a VPN, which can help protect your network from outsiders.

Configuring a VPN

Using the Cisco Mod1700-VPN networking firewall encryption accelerator, you can encrypt VPN traffic in two ways.

First, you can use a crypto map to configure the router to negotiate a certain policy during VPN connections.

Second, you can use a crypto access list to send traffic in an encrypted format. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages.

When using crypto map configuration mode, you must specify a local address, the name of the transform set, and a sequence number.

In addition, you must set an interval for IKE keepalives. The default interval is 10 seconds.

IKE keepalives are used to detect loss of connectivity and to provide network resiliency. They can be configured as an interval of time, or as the length of packets.

The Cisco ASA supports a range of IKE protocols.

For example, a crypto map set may be used to configure a router to evaluate all interface traffic, use a specified policy during VPN connections, and use the specified policy during IKE negotiations.

Likewise, an access list may be used to encrypt IP traffic between two headquarters servers.

You can also configure a site-to-site VPN. This type of VPN requires that the router select an interface that faces a remote device.

In this case, the router must create a rule to exempt the VPN connection from NAT rules. This can be done automatically or manually.

Cisco ASA supports a feature called hair pinning. Hairpinning is a method of redirecting incoming VPN traffic to another device, such as a VPN Client. This is useful for VPN Clients that do not have split tunneling.

In this example, you can send unencrypted traffic to a public web server.

The ASA also includes a feature to send IPsec-protected traffic.

This feature is used in conjunction with tunnel mode, which encapsulates the entire IP packet. Both methods use IP protocol numbers 50 and 51.

The Cisco Mod1700-VPN networking firewall encryption accelerator supports a range of IKE protocols. It is recommended to use mirror image crypto access lists for IPSec use.

The crypto map set, crypto access list, and IKE policy objects can be applied to outbound interfaces or to the local network.

Supporting DES, 3DES, and AES IPSec encryption

IPSec is an IP security framework that provides data confidentiality, integrity, and authentication between hosts and security gateways.

It can be used in conjunction with PPP Frame Relay and High-Level Data-Links Control. It provides data confidentiality by encapsulating data in a security payload.

IPSec is supported on Cisco IOS releases up to and including Release 12.4(15)T.

Cisco IOS IPsec supports double encryption for locally generated IPsec packets.

This is done using a DH key exchange (with a group size of 2048 or larger). It also supports nested tunnels on the same router.

This feature is not supported on the port-channel interface.

IPsec supports data confidentiality and authentication through the use of a security association (SA).

This describes how two entities will use the security services.

The DH group and the security parameter indexes must be specified for both inbound and outbound protected traffic.

The security parameter index uniquely identifies a security association. It also provides an initialization vector.

IPsec also uses IKE to negotiate a security association and generate encryption keys. The DH algorithm is used in IKE to establish session keys.

It is recommended to use a 2048-bit DH group with a 256-bit subgroup.

This provides greater security than 3DES, and it is the recommended algorithm for Cisco IOS IPsec.

AES is also a privacy transform for IPsec. It offers a larger key size than DES, and it offers a number of key strengths.

You can choose from a 256-bit key, a 128-bit key, or a 192-bit key. You can also specify the AES encryption algorithm and the AES key length.

AES has been used since the early days of cryptography but was developed to replace DES.

It is more secure than DES, and it offers a larger key size. It can be configured to generate a 128-bit key, but a larger key provides better security.

Cisco IOS IPsec also supports double encryption of locally generated IKE packets. It uses a DH group with a 256-bit ECDH subgroup. Cisco IOS IPsec also supports the RFC 1829 version of the ESP DES-CBC.

Integrating RSA and IP Payload Compression Protocol (IPPCP) Lempel-Ziv-Stac (LZS) compression

PPTP is a protocol that allows end users to dial into an ISP’s remote access switch (RAS) and connect to their RAS server through the Internet.

This method provides the same level of authentication as dialing directly into the RAS server. It also provides the same encryption, allowing end users to connect from anywhere on the Internet.

The user logs into the RAS server using a user account and credentials provided by the ISP. The RAS server authenticates the user and assigns the user an internal corporate IP address of 2.1.1.129. Sara N. wants to check her corporate email.

The user’s PPP datagram is encapsulated by the PPTP protocol, which includes an IP header and delivery header.

This is then transmitted to the RAS server. The RAS server authenticates the connection and assigns Sara N.’s credentials to her machine.

PPTP is a protocol that provides the same encryption and authentication as dialing directly into the RAS server.

It also provides the same access to the corporate LAN. It can be used to tunnel any RAS protocol that is supported on the ISP’s dial-up connection.

The PPTP protocol uses the Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) protocol, which can be used to tunnel protocols over the Internet. The PPTP protocol also supports Layer 2 payload compression.

This is accomplished by matching a compress command to each interface.

There are several compression options available in the Cisco IOS software, including TCP header compression and Lempel-Ziv Stacker (LZS).

TCP header compression is similar to RTP compression. TCP header compression compresses the combined IP and TCP headers into three or five bytes.

This is ideal for smaller packets, but may not be cost-effective for larger packets. LZS is generally more CPU-intensive, but it provides better compression ratios.

There are also three options for payload compression.

These include TCP header compression, RTP header compression, and Lempel-Ziv Stacker (LZS).

Each option has its pros and cons, and each type can be configured using legacy commands.

The Cisco 1841 Integrated Services Router supports all of these options.

The Cisco 1841 can be managed using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) or terminal emulator software.

It also supports the Cisco IOS Firewall feature set. This feature set includes enhanced firewall functions such as Java applet blocking and denial of service detection.

TLS/SSL oversubscription

Adding an encryption accelerator to the Cisco mod1700-VPN networking firewall can help prevent TLS/SSL oversubscription.

Encryption acceleration can be performed in software or hardware. It can be enabled on managed devices and native instances. However, it is not supported on unmanaged devices.

The Cisco mod1700-VPN networking firewall provides three categories of encrypted traffic. Each encrypted session has different cryptographic details.

For example, SSL v2.0 and SSL v1.1 contain different cryptographic session details. When a TLS/SSL rule is created, the protocol version is automatically selected.

However, users must choose at least one protocol version.

The three TLS/SSL categories are TLS/SSL Rule 1, TLS/SSL Rule 2, and TLS/SSL Rule 3. Each TLS/SSL rule provides a granular method for handling encrypted traffic.

A TLS/SSL rule can match traffic against a number, certificate status, or cipher suite.

A rule can also preempt other rules.

TLS/SSL Rule 1 identifies the type of encrypted traffic and inspects it. Rule 2 inspects traffic with access control, but does not inspect intrusions.

Rule 3 blocks the matching traffic. Rule 2 and Rule 3 can be combined into a single rule.

In addition to inspecting encrypted traffic, the system can decrypt encrypted traffic.

This action adds processing load and can reduce the overall system performance. Using selective decrypting is recommended for best results.

The Cisco mod1700-VPN networking firewall provides several rule actions for decrypting traffic.

The Decrypt – Known Key rule action uses the server’s private key to decrypt the traffic. This rule action is recommended for incoming traffic.

It can also be used with a destination server inside a protected network. However, it cannot decrypt multiple types of outgoing traffic.

The Decrypt-Resign rule action creates two TLS/SSL sessions. In each session, the system decrypts the traffic using the server’s private key.

The Decrypt-Known Key rule also requires an internal certificate object and server certificate file.

If the firewall does not have an internal certificate object, it must be configured with an external certificate object.

The external certificate object must match the associated CA certificate cipher suite.

In addition to inspecting encrypted traffic, a TLS/SSL rule can block nonsecure SSL traffic.

These rules can also block older SSL/TLS versions.
