Diffie-Hellman (DH) allows two devices to establish a shared secret over an unsecure network. In terms of VPN it is used in the in IKE or Phase1 part of setting up the VPN tunnel.
There are multiple Diffie-Hellman Groups that can be configured in an IKEv2 policy on a Cisco ASA running 9.1(3). In Nov 2016 ASA 9.6(x) is available and there are no new changes to the DH Groups.
Diffie-Hellman group 1 - 768 bit modulus - AVOID
Diffie-Hellman group 2 - 1024 bit modulus - AVOID
Diffie-Hellman group 5 - 1536 bit modulus - AVOID
Diffie-Hellman group 14 - 2048 bit modulus – MINIMUM ACCEPTABLE
Diffie-Hellman group 19 - 256 bit elliptic curve – ACCEPTABLE
Diffie-Hellman group 20 - 384 bit elliptic curve – Next Generation Encryption
Diffie-Hellman group 21 - 521 bit elliptic curve – Next Generation Encryption
Diffie-Hellman group 24 - modular exponentiation group with a 2048-bit modulus and 256-bit prime order subgroup – Next Generation Encryption
Algorithms marked as AVOID do not provide an adequate security level against modern threats and should not be used to protect sensitive information. It is recommended that these algorithms be replaced with stronger algorithms.
Next Generation Encryption (NGE) is expected to meet the security and scalability requirements of the next two decades.
If you are using encryption or authentication algorithms with a 128-bit key, use Diffie-Hellman groups 5, 14, 19, 20 or 24. If you are using encryption or authentication algorithms with a 256-bit key or higher, use Diffie-Hellman group 21 or 24.
Hi Community, We have upgraded from ISE v3.0 to v3.1 p3 and after the upgrade, we are observing that default interface for service traffic is changed to eth0, whereas, before the upgrade it was through eth1. Hoping for any resolutions on this issue.&...
I’m running into an issue with some windows 10 clients.After the clients register in the Guest portal, and a successful logon page appears, instead of getting directed to the internet the clients are getting re-directed back to register.If the clients go ...
Hi community members,
I need help here. we are using FTD 4125 physical appliance and configured SSL VPN with self-signed cert. whenever users try to connect AnyConnect, the application prompt warning that this is not trusted CA.

I am installing an Exchange server behind an FPM 1010 running FDM. I have a public ip natted to internal. When I do a "What is my IP" from the exchange server console, I get the public ip of the FPM 1010. What do I need to change in the 1...
We are going to upgrade a ASA & ASDM Firmwares on a Firepower 2120 device.
We'd like to know if the current Firepower firmware will be compatible with the ASA & ASDM Firmwares which we are going to install.
