Severity: 3-Major


Attack mitigation is done in hardware for entries which are configured as allowed IPs in a DoS profile attached to virtual server.


Virtual server allow list functionality will not work as expected. Rate limiting will be done in hardware, although IP is configured to be allowed.


- L2 wire need to be enabled. - Allow list need to be configured and attach to virtual server DoS profile. - Attack need to be detected for the traffic initiated from the source IP configured in allowed list.



Fix Information

Allowed IP list on L2 wire enabled interfaces can be configured.
