Opened: Aug 04, 2021
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

With the DTLS virtual server, when client sends the CLOSE_NOTIFY alert, BIG-IP is simply closing the connection without sending the CLOSE_NOTIFY back to client as well as the backend server. This causes the backend server to not close/shutdown the connection completely.

Impact

Backend server and client will have a dangling connection for certain period of time (Based on the timeout implementation at the respective ends).

Conditions

This issue occurs with all DTLS virtual servers which has associated client-ssl and server-ssl profiles.

Workaround

None
