HP recommends the following software updates and workaround instructions to resolve this vulnerability for HP IceWall Federation Agent.
Apply the latest RHEL security patches for OpenSSL from the following locations as appropriate:
Apply HP IceWall Federation Agent version 3.0 patch release 3 from the following location:
Workaround Instructions for HP IceWall Federation Agent:
If possible, use "bindings:HTTP-POST" instead of "bindings:HTTP-Artifact"setting in the service provider meta file. The "bindings:HTTP-POST"setting would prevent IWFA from using SSL for communicating with IdP server.
If it is not possible to use "bindings:HTTP-POST" in the service provider meta file, and SSL between IWFA and IdP servers cannot be disabled, then there are no workarounds. Apply the latest OpenSSL security patch from RedHat, and then apply IceWall Federation Agent 3.0 patch release 3.
HP recommends the following software updates and workaround instructions to resolve this vulnerability for HP IceWall SSO Dfw , SSO Certd, and MCRP.
The software updates are available at:
- There are no updates or mitigations for MCRP 2.1 and Dfw 8.0/8.0R1/8.0R2/8.0R3.
- HP recommends updating these older versions to the latest versions and patches and then following the Workaround Instructions below.
- The Workaround Instructions below should be followed after applying the following updates.
Software Update Versions
HP IceWall MCRP 3.0 Patch release 1
HP IceWall SSO Dfw 10.0 Patch release 7
Note: Both software update versions provide the use of TLSv1 which is not vulnerable and available for each supported platform.
Workaround Instructions for HP IceWall SSO Dfw , SSO Certd, and MCRP:
HP recommends the following information to protect against potential risk for the following HP IceWall products.
HP IceWall SSO Dfw and MCRP
If possible, do not use the SHOST setting which allows IceWall SSO Dfw or MCRP to use SSL/TLS protocol to back-end web servers.
The following steps should be applied if SSL/TLS protocol to back-end web servers must be used:
- For MCRP: apply MCRP patch release 1
- For Dfw: apply Dfw patch release 7 or later
- Set SSL_PROTOCOL parameter to TLSv1
HP IceWall SSO Certd
For Certd version 10.0 and 8.0R3: apply DB plugin patch release 2
If possible, do not use the LDAPSSL setting which allows IceWall SSO Certd to connect to the LDAP server using SSL/TLS protocol.
If SSL/TLS protocol must be used to LDAP server, configure the LDAP server to use only TLSv1 as a mitigation for the vulnerability. For example, on an OpenLDAP server (slapd), Set theTLSProtocolMin parameter.
Note:The HP IceWall product is only available in Japan.
