Known Affected Releases


Description (partial)

Cisco would like to raise awareness for customers in regard to how Cisco ASA and FTD Software apply default settings to trustpoints for imported certificates, and how to ensure a trustpoint is configured for its desired function only.

Cisco does not consider this a vulnerability in Cisco ASA or FTD Software or the digital certificates authentication feature, but a configuration issue. 

Future releases of Cisco ASA and FTD Software, including Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Security Manager, and Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC), will raise warning alerts when importing certificates to alert customers of the default behavior and to provide guidance how to harden the configuration via Cisco bug IDs CSCvt50528, CSCvv11100, and CSCvv11051.

However, it is not a requirement to run code integrated with these Cisco bug IDs to take the appropriate hardening actions. Customers are advised to review this advisory and make any respective configuration changes.
