Severity: 3-Major


The SSL profile "passive-close" option is available in TMSH (but not the GUI), but is not actually used. A side-effect of this issue is: when the "passive-close" option is configured in TMSH, if the profile is later modified in the GUI, the "passive-close" option will be removed from the profile.


The "passive-close" option is not actually used.


-- Modifying a client or server SSL profile in TMSH.


Do not use the "passive-close" option.
