However, if you need SmartAccess features e. The Gateway Universal licenses are allocated to the case sensitive hostname of each appliance.
Ciphers A large part of optimising out SSL setting revolves around offering only the most secure ciphers to our connecting clients and ensuring we order out ciphers in such a way that during the SSL handshake the stronger ciphers are most preferred.
So we create a customer cipher group: Some may say using a secrete algorithm to protect your secrets makes them. Some may say that reducing the number of people who have access to the algorithm reduces the probability of a flaw being found via peer review. As of version We reluctantly enable this as it is the strongest cipher we can offer to Windows XP and IE8 users however personally I would suggest that as mainstream support ended on the 14th of April over 7 years ago and extended support ended on the 8th of April over 2 years ago that supporting these operating systems in in fact an indication that security is clearly not a priority and quibbling over the ciphers you allow is probably the least of your problems.
I have however added it with the above caveats as I live in the real world and no matter how painful it is Windows XP will not die.
If you have upgraded your NetScaler appliance from a version The reason for this will be explained later in this post. In order to allow us to configure our SSL profile using a single command the first thing I want to do is create myself a Diffie-Hellman key.
It means although all your existing SSL parameter setting are overridden the will be overridden with preferred settings.
You have been warned! This rating will degrade over time, that is the nature of the security world and the reason people continue to pay us. Unfortunately we cant set this via our SSL profile however rather then binding a rewrite policy individually to SSL virtual servers I would prefer to set this cookie whenever the NetScaler detects the client is connecting using SSL.
We can reduce the risk of unencrypted connections by submitting your domain to Chromes HSTS preload list which tell supported browsers Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE11 and Edge that your domain should only use encrypted communication.
Prerequisites for being added to the HSTS preload list are: Expiry must be at least eighteen weeks seconds. The includeSubDomains directive must be specified.
The preload directive must be specified.Rack Mounting the Appliance. Jul 29, Most appliances can be installed in standard server racks that conform to EIAD specification.
The appliances ship with a set of rails, which you must install before you mount the appliance. How to configure Citrix NetScaler with AAA for Exchange and Tuesday, 02 May Citrix NetScaler with Enterprise license or higher.
Windows Active Directory (Forrest and Domain level is not important for this guide) And the rewrite policy for inserting HSTS in the header.
Figure *a theoretical attack has been documented to suggest the private key can be found in 2 61 making it 61 bit however this has not been practised.. While Citrix have not published benchmark figures for SSL throughput based on certificates signed with different encryption algorithms on the NetScaler product range benchmarking tests performed by the University of Illinois at Chicago show the use of.
Hi Carl, I am planning to configure reverse proxy for the an application in Netscaler. The communication is detailed below.
Client sends a request to the Content Server Whenever we call Content server, it communicates to directory services server for authentication. The directory services server sends a request to the Client for authentication Client response back to the directory service.
I worked as "the citrix guy"/architect in a mid-sized org (~ XenDesktop and just a bit of XA , NetScaler GW + LB with rewrite/responder).
So I was pretty well rounded when I took my tests after switching to consulting. Mike Roselli at Netscaler 11 Theme Customization – How to Add Links and Verbiage at caninariojana.com has sample rewrite policies to customize .
