The Cisco Intrusion Detection System (IDS) SSH (Secure Shell) error message can be caused by a misconfiguration of the Public Modulus field. The RSA algorithm uses the Public Modulus to encrypt data.
What is SSH?
The Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol enables the user to login securely from remote locations over an insecure network
The SSH2 protocol provides improvements to SSH1. Few of them are mentioned below:
A more secure protocol.
With root privileges less code run is required in new design.
New methods for cryptography and mathematics resulting incredible improvement in Speed
Support for multiple public key algorithms, including DSA and Diffie-Hellman key exchange.
To resolve this issue, verify that the SSH hosts are correctly added to the IDS configuration.
Perform these steps:
In the IDS Device Manager Sensor, select Device > Sensor Setup > Known Host Keys.
The SSH Host Keys page appears.
To add known host keys, click Add.
To identify the key, enter a unique ID in the ID field.
Note: The ID should be a 1 to 256 character string that uniquely identifies the authorized key.
Numbers, "_", and "-" are valid. Spaces are not valid.
In the Key Modulus Length field, enter an ASCII decimal integer from 511 to 2048.
The Key Modulus Length is the number of significant bits in the modulus. The strength of an Rivest, Shamir, and Adelman (RSA) key relies on the size of the modulus. The more bits the modulus has, the stronger the key.
In the Public Exponent field, enter an ASCII decimal integer from 3 to 4294967296.
The RSA algorithm uses the Public Exponent to encrypt data.
In the Public Modulus field, enter an ASCII decimal integer in the range x, such that (2^ [key-modulus-length-1]) < x < (2^key-modulus-length).
The RSA algorithm uses the Public Modulus to encrypt data.
Hello, Do we have any options in cisco ISE to identify, which certificates has been used by endpoint to get authenticated.Is there anyways in pulling report based on above mentioned statement. CISCO ISE 2.4 patch 10 Thanks and regards ...
We are rolling out 802.1x to an Industrial Manufacturer. Our maintenance windows are rather tight for the production floor, and we have a deadline for full TrustSec deployment by April 2020. For these reasons we are deploying in what we are cal...
There's a lot of material published about Threat Response, in places like http://cisco.com/go/threatresponse - but something I get asked by users is what can they do, to proactively stay informed and up to date? We are adding new integrations and new feat...
hi All, I need someone to confirm one thing about deployment for 9 PSNs. I remember from most of the presentations that whenever you have more than 5 PSN you need to split PAN from MnT so how to interpret the following pictures? ...
Hello, If I want to use MAB on a bunch of devices from the same manufacturer that can;t do 802.1x can I create just a single MAB policy and have all the devices hit that policy or whi I have to enter every actual MAC address for each device?&nb...
