Last Modified: Sep 13, 2023

Affected Product(s):
BIG-IP TMOS(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
12.1.0, 12.1.1, 12.1.2, 12.1.3,,,,,,,, 12.1.4,, 12.1.5,,,, 12.1.6, 13.0.0, 13.0.0 HF1, 13.0.0 HF2, 13.0.0 HF3, 13.0.1, 13.1.0,,,,,,,,, 13.1.1,,,,, 13.1.3,,,,,,, 13.1.4,, 13.1.5,

Opened: Jan 04, 2017

Severity: 3-Major


When a BIG-IP system uses a floating IP to establish an IKEv1 IPsec tunnel, and then the Security Association (SA) is deleted, under rare conditions the ISAKMP notification will use a non-floating IP as the source address.


The IKEv1 racoon daemon now deletes an SA without requiring the source IP to be the correct peer. It is possible that this will allow a random peer to delete another peer's security associations.


Define a tunnel with floating IP addresses, then toggle version between IKEv1 and IKEv2.
