Firepower 6.2.3 released

For all of you out there eager to upgrade their lab environments (or brave enough to upgrade to a new software release a few hours after release), Firepower 6.2.3 has just been released and brings some interesting and long awaited changes...

 

Some features worth noting:

 

SSL Hardware Acceleration 

FPR4100/9300 can make use of their built in crypto chips for ssl encryption and decryption

 

 

Firepower Management Center REST API Improvements
CRUD Operations for NAT, Static Routing, and HA Bundling

 

Upgrade Package Push
Download updates to your sensors before maintenance windows... Saves a lot of time in case you have some low bandwidth links

 

Policy Deploy Restart Improvements
Less snort restarts during policy deployments, leading to more smoother policy deployments

 

Firepower Device Manager REST API
FTD now includes an API browser and a large set of CRUD operations

 

Direct Upgrade from 6.1.x (!)
Starting with version 6.1.0 you can directly upgrade to 6.2.3. No need to go through many time consuming upgrades (upgrade times should also be greatly enhanced, but we'll see :)

 

Apart from some other enhancements there have been 207 bug fixes and minor changes in default behavior. For a full list of changes check out the release notes:

EDIT:

The Upgrade was pulled of the cisco download site due to a bug that basically changed your ips variable set when you were using objects in it. An updated upgrade package should be available on monday, 2nd of april.

Subscribed for updates on the ansible modules.

Hopefully they release the API for VPN operations soon.
