Opened: May 18, 2021
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

HTTPS monitors with SSL profile set to None (default) will not use the default ServerSSL profile of "serverssl" when In-TMM monitoring is enabled. Instead, another internal ServerSSL profile is used which has different values from "serverssl".

Impact

The TLS settings for the HTTPS monitor monitor probes will not match those of the ServerSSL "serverssl" profile and may cause unexpected behavior such as utilizing TLS 1.3 (disabled by default in the "serverssl" profile) or random session IDs.

Conditions

-- In-TMM monitoring is enabled -- HTTPS monitor(s) with SSL profile field is set to the default of "None"

Workaround

Specify a ServerSSL profile in every HTTPS monitor when using In-TMM monitoring. Attaching the profile "serverssl" will result in the same behavior that SSL Profile "none" should provide, given that the "serverssl" profile should be the default.

Fix Information

None
