Release Notes for Cisco  3640 for Cisco  IOS Release  12.0(2)XC

Release Notes for Cisco  3640 for Cisco  IOS Release  12.0(2)XC

January 7, 1999

These release notes describe new features for the Cisco  3640 router that supports Cisco  IOS Release  12.0(2)XC. Cisco  IOS Release  12.0(2)XC is based on Cisco  IOS Release  12.0(2)T. The Cisco 3620 is not supported by this Cisco IOS release.

Use these release notes in conjunction with the cross-platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release  12.0  T located on Cisco Connection Online (CCO)  and the Documentation CD-ROM.  

For a list of software caveats that apply to Release 12.0(2)XC, refer to the "Caveats" section.

Contents

These release notes discuss the following topics:

Introduction

As a modular solution, the Cisco  3640 enables corporations to increase dial-up intensity and take advantage of current and emerging WAN technologies and networking capabilities. The Cisco  3640 is fully supported by Cisco  IOS software, which includes dial-up connectivity, LAN-to-LAN routing, data and access security, WAN optimization, and multimedia features.

Early Deployment Releases

This release notes document is based on Release Notes for Cisco 3600 Series for Cisco IOS Release  12.0(2)T. Release  12.0  XC is an Early Deployment (ED) release, delivering both fixes to software caveats and support for new Cisco hardware. Table 1 briefly describes some of the ED releases that will be available for the Cisco 3600 series.

1This image was introduced in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)T.

New and Changed Information

This section lists new features introduced for the Cisco 3640 in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)XC and Cisco IOS Release 12.0(1)T. For more information about these features, refer to the cross-platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T   located on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) and the Documentation CD-ROM, and the "Feature Modules" section.

New Features in Release 12.0(2)XC

The following new features are supported by the Cisco 3640 in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)XC.

Modem Over BRI Support

This new feature allows the Cisco 3640 to be used as a low-density RAS device, simultaneously supporting ISDN BRI users and modem users. The modem users can take advantage of any V.90 compliant modems and active connection speeds with the Cisco 3600 at up to 56 Kbps.

This V.90 support was only available through the Cisco 3600 PRI interface until this Cisco IOS release.

Five New Feature Sets

Five new feature sets have been created for the Cisco 3640 in Release 12.0(2)XC that support IPSec Triple DES encryption. These feature sets include the following:

Triple DES (3DES) is a strong form of encryption that allows sensitive information to be transmitted over untrusted networks. It enables customers, particularly in the finance industry, to utilize network layer encryption. IPSec supports the Triple DES encryption algorithm (168-bit) in addition to 56-bit encryption.

Important Notes

This section contains important information about use of your Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)XC software.

Deprecated MIBs

Older Cisco Management Information Bases (MIBs) will be replaced in a future release. OLD-CISCO-* MIBS are currently being migrated into more scalable MIBs, without affecting existing Cisco IOS products or NMS applications. Application developers should update from deprecated MIBs to the replacement MIBs as shown in the table below.

Caveats

This section contains the open caveats for the current Cisco IOS maintenance release only. The software caveats are also located in the Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T document that accompanies these release notes.The caveats document is located on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM.


Note If you have an account with CCO, you can use Bug Navigator II to find caveats of any severity for any release. Bug Navigator II is at http://www.cisco.com/support/bugtools, or from CCO, select Software & Support: Technical Support: Software Bug Toolkit II.

Open Caveats---Release 12.0(2)XC

This section describes possibly unexpected behavior by Release 12.0(2)XC. Unless otherwise noted, these caveats apply to all 12.0 releases up to and including 12.0(2)XC.

Miscellaneous

Description: If a User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packet with an invalid length is sent to port 514 (the "syslog" port) on an IOS device, the device is likely to reload. In this situation, a stack trace might not be saved. Such packets are sent by the popular nmap port scanning program.

Workaround: You can work around this vulnerability by preventing any affected Cisco IOS device from receiving or processing UDP datagrams addressed to its port 514. This can be done either using packet filtering on surrounding devices, or by using input access list filtering on the affected IOS device itself.

If you use an input access list, that list should be applied to all interfaces to which attackers may be able to send datagrams. This includes not only physical LAN and WAN interfaces, but virtual subinterfaces of those physical interfaces, as well as virtual interfaces and/or interface templates corresponding to GRE, L2TP, L2F, and other tunnelling protocols.

The input access list must block traffic destined for any of the CiscoIOS device's own IP addresses, as well as for any broadcast or multicast addresses on which the Cisco IOS device may be listening. It's important to remember to block old-style "all-zeroes" broadcasts as well as new-style "all-ones" broadcasts.

There is no single input access list that will work in all configurations. It is very important that you understand the effect of your access list in your specific configuration before you activate the list.

The following example shows a possible access list for a three-interface router, along with the configuration commands needed to apply that access list. The example assumes no need for input filtering other than as a workaround for this vulnerability.

! Deny all multicasts, and all unspecified-net broadcasts, to port 514 
access-list 101 deny udp any 224.0.0.0 31.255.255.255 eq 514
! Deny old-style unspecified-net broadcasts
access-list 101 deny udp any host 0.0.0.0 eq 514
! Deny network-specific broadcasts. This example assumes that all of
! the local interfaces are on the class B network 172.16.0.0, subnetted
! everywhere with mask 255.255.255.0. This will differ from network
! to network. Note that we block both new-style and old-style broadcasts.
access-list 101 deny udp any 172.16.0.255 0.0.255.0 eq 514
access-list 101 deny udp any 172.16.0.0   0.0.255.0 eq 514
! Deny packets sent to the addresses of our own network interfaces.
access-list 101 deny udp any host 172.16.1.1 eq 514
access-list 101 deny udp any host 172.16.2.1 eq 514
access-list 101 deny udp any host 172.16.3.3 eq 514
! Permit all other traffic (default would be to deny)
access-list 101 permit ip any any

! Apply the access list to the input side of each interface
interface ethernet 0
ip address 172.16.1.1 255.255.255.0
ip access-group 101 in

interface ethernet 2
ip address 172.16.2.1 255.255.255.0
ip access-group 101 in

interface ethernet 3
ip address 172.16.3.3 255.255.255.0
ip access-group 101 in

It can be complicated to list all possible addresses, and especially all possible broadcast addresses, to which attack packets might be sent. If you do not expect to receive any legitimate syslog traffic on an interface, you may wish to simply block all syslog traffic arriving on that interface. Remember that this will affect traffic routed through the Cisco IOS device as well as traffic destined to the device.

Input access lists have an impact on system performance, and should be installed with a degree of caution, especially on systems that are running very near their capacity limits.

Description: When you configure Bisync (encapsulation bstun) with the ASCII character set (bsc char-set ascii) on the first port of a serial WIC (1T, 2T, or 2A/S) in WIC slot 0 of a Cisco 2600 series router, only the first character of each frame is received, and the BSTUN tunnel is not established. This only affects Bisync mode when it is configured with the ASCII character set. Other encapsulations are not affected, and using the EBCDIC character set with Bisync works correctly.

Details: For the first serial port in WIC slot 0, the parity detection is not configured correctly for Bisync in ASCII mode. The first character of each frame generates a parity error that causes the receiver to discard the frame after the first character received.

Workaround: Use a different serial port: either the second serial port (port 1) on a 2T or 2A/S WIC in WIC slot 0 or any serial port in WIC slot 1. If you have only one serial WIC, moving it from WIC slot 0 to WIC slot 1 fixes this problem.
