CASA-VN-000760 - The Cisco ASA VPN remote access server must be configured to use an approved High Assurance Commercial Solution for Classified (CSfC) cryptographic algorithm for remote access to a classified network - ipsec-proposal
Warning! Audit Deprecated
This audit has been deprecated and will be removed in a future update.
Use of improperly configured or lower assurance equipment and solutions could compromise high-value information. The National Security Agency/Central Security Service's (NSA/CSS) CSfC program enables commercial products to be used in layered solutions to protect classified National Security Systems (NSS) data. Based on an analysis of the impact of quantum computing, cryptographic algorithms specified by CNSSP-15 and approved for use in products in the CSfC program have been changed to more stringent protocols and configured with increased bit sizes and other secure characteristics to protect against quantum computing threats. The Commercial National Security Algorithm Suite (CNSA Suite) replaces Suite B.
Configure the ASA to use an approved High Assurance CSfC cryptographic algorithm for remote access to a classified network. Step 1: Configure the IKE Phase 1. ASA2(config)# crypto ikev2 policy 2 ASA2(config-ikev2-policy)# encryption aes-256 ASA2(config-ikev2-policy)# integrity null ASA2(config-ikev2-policy)# group 20 ASA2(config-ikev2-policy)# prf sha384 ASA2(config-ikev2-policy)# exit Step 2: Configure the IPsec proposal in compliance with CNSA/CNSSP-15 and apply to a crypto map as shown in the example below. ASA2(config-ipsec-proposal)# protocol esp encryption aes-256 ASA2(config-ipsec-proposal)# exit ASA2(config)# crypto map CSNA_MAP 10 set ikev2 ipsec-proposal AES-256 ASA2(config)# end
