If a BIG-IP virtual server is configured with a Server SSL profile, and a pool member or server selects a DHE-based ciphersuite (e.g. DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA), the BIG-IP system might not successfully complete an SSL handshake with the server.
Traffic to affected pool members fails, although the pool members are marked up by HTTPS monitors.
This occurs when the following conditions exist: - HTTPS Pool member or server. - Virtual server with Server SSL profile. - Server is configured with 2048-bit or larger Diffie-Hellman keys.
Either disable the use of ephemeral Diffie-Hellman (DHE) key exchange on the backend servers, select a smaller set of DH parameters on the backend servers, or disable DHE ciphersuites in affected virtual servers' Server SSL profiles.
BIG-IP system now successfully completes an SSL handshake with a server that is using Diffie-Hellman parameters that are 2048-bits or larger, up to 4096-bits.
