Opened: Mar 10, 2016
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

Network Access always fallbacks to TLS connection even if DTLS is configured when connecting to some hardware platforms.

Impact

Network Access connection always fallbacks to TLS connection

Conditions

Network Access is configured to use DTLS Hardware BIG-IP with DTLS Nitrox acceleration is used,

Workaround

N/A

Fix Information

Previously, Network Access always fell back to a TLS connection even if DTLS was configured when connecting to some hardware platforms. Network Access no longer falls back to TLS.
