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.
Hi, We are planning to enable FIPS mode for our Cisco 2130 Firepower Threat Defense FTD due to internal audit requirements. Firmware version is Version 22.214.171.124 (Build 24). We have the following queries:1. We are concerned that th...
Hello guys Im begginer on cisco router and network thing. I have cisco asa5505 routerboard so i have created vpn. i have configured Group policies. We have inside network 10.150.0.0 with netmask 255.255.252.0. So on the NAT rule when i added nat...
Hey everyone, To some it might seem like a dumb question, but how do you enable API in IronPort. The AsyncOS API document states that I need to navigate to Network > IP Interfaces, however, I'm not seeing this option. &nb...
Hi,debug crypto isakmp did not generate any log .is there any command other than this , I want to run on a production asa . how to run a debug command without any problem. undeug all command revert debugging ? Thanks...
