security config modify doesn't work as expected

Hi,

I have problem to enable the right cipher suites in ONTAP 9.12.1P2 and 19.13.1.

The command: 
security config modify -interface SSL -supported-ciphers ECDHE:!PSK:!DHE:!LOW:!aNULL:!EXP:!eNull:!3DES:!kdH:!kECDd:!SHA

enables following cipher suites:

TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CCM,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CCM_8,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CCM,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CCM_8,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,
TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384

I don't want the red marked cipher suites to be enabled so I tried this command:

security config modify -interface SSL -supported-cipher-suites TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384

But the result is:

TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,
TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384

The both cipher suites TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 and TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 are not enabled.

No matter how I try to enable this both cipher suites it doesn't work. Only the first command in this post works.

Does anybody know the reason or solution for this strange behavior?

Hi,

You can set the cipher and cipher suite with a single command.

E.g:

security config modify -interface SSL -supported-protocols TLSv1.3,TLSv1.2 -supported-ciphers ECDHE:!PSK:!DHE:!LOW:!aNULL:!EXP:!eNull:!3DES:!kdH:!kECDd:!SHA -supported-cipher-suites TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384

 

By specifying the cipher and cipher suite we'd like above we'd get the following result:

cluster1::*> security config show
Cluster    Supported
FIPS Mode  Protocols Supported Cipher Suites
---------- --------- ----------------------------------------------------------
false      TLSv1.3,  TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
           TLSv1.2   TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,
                     TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,
                     TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,
                     TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,
                     TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256,
                     TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,
                     TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,
                     TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,
                     TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256

 

I hope this helps with your issue.
