Opened: Aug 10, 2021
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Reverse proxy or inbound traffic fails during SSL renegotiation when a per-request policy is attached to the virtual server.

Impact

Reverse proxy traffic fails during SSL renegotiation.

Conditions

-- SSL Orchestrator is licensed and provisioned. -- Per-request policy is attached to virtual server. -- Client or backend server initiates SSL renegotiation.

Workaround

If renegotiation is not required then it can be disabled on BIG-IP. The client SSL and server SSL profiles have 'Renegotiation' settings. If it is set to disabled, BIG-IP or SSL Orchestrator does not do SSL renegotiation.

Fix Information

Reverse proxy or inbound traffic no longer fails during SSL renegotiation when per-req policy is attached to the virtual server.
