Juniper IVE OS Unintentionally Trusted Certificate Authorities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 69183


The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.


According to its self-reported version, the version of IVE OS running on the remote host has an insecure SSL configuration. Internal and development Certificate Authorities (CAs) used by Juniper during testing were mistakenly included and explicitly trusted in public releases of IVE OS. A man-in-the-middle attacker could with access to these CAs could exploit this to compromise the confidentiality and integrity of SSL connections without being detected.

This plugin determines whether or not the system is vulnerable solely by check the OS version. It does not check if the workaround in Juniper Security Advisory JSA10571 is being used.


Upgrade to IVE OS 7.1r7 or later, or use the workaround listed in Juniper Security Advisory JSA10571.
