2017-07 Security Bulletin: OpenSSL Security Advisory [26 Jan 2017]


This issue affects Junos OS 14.1, 14.1X53, 14.2, 15.1, 15.1X49, 15.1X53, 
15.1X56, 16.1, 16.2, 17.1. This issue affects CTPOS 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3. This 
issue affects CTPView 7.1, 7.2, 7.3.


The OpenSSL project has published a security advisory for vulnerabilities 
resolved in the OpenSSL library on January 26, 2017. The following is a 
summary of these vulnerabilities and their status with respect to Juniper 

CVE CVSSv3 Base Score Summary

CVE-2017-3731 5.3 (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

If an SSL/TLS server or client is running on a 32-bit host, and a specific 
cipher is being used, then a truncated packet can cause that server or client
to perform an out-of-bounds read, usually resulting in a crash.

CVE-2017-3732 3.7 (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N)

There is a carry propagating bug in the x86_64 Montgomery squaring procedure.
No EC algorithms are affected. Analysis suggests that attacks against RSA and
DSA as a result of this defect would be very difficult to perform and are not
believed likely.

CVE-2016-7055 3.7 (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

There is a carry propagating bug in the Broadwell-specific Montgomery 
multiplication procedure that handles input lengths divisible by, but longer 
than 256 bits. Analysis suggests that attacks against RSA, DSA and DH private
keys are impossible. This is because the subroutine in question is not used in
operations with the private key itself and an input of the attacker's direct 
choice. Otherwise the bug can manifest itself as transient authentication and
key negotiation failures or reproducible erroneous outcome of public-key 
operations with specially crafted input. Among EC algorithms only Brainpool 
P-512 curves are affected and one presumably can attack ECDH key negotiation.

Affected Products

Junos OS, CTPView, and CTPOS are potentially affected by one or more of these

Juniper Secure Analytics (JSA, STRM) and ScreenOS are confirmed to not be 
vulnerable to any of these issues.

This advisory will be updated as additional products are analyzed and fixes 
become available.


Junos OS:

The following software releases have been updated to OpenSSL 1.0.2k to resolve
these specific issues: 14.1R8-S3, 14.1R9, 14.1X53-D43, 14.1X53-D50, 14.2R4-S7,
14.2R7-S6, 14.2R8, 15.1F5-S7, 15.1F6-S6, 15.1R5-S2, 15.1R6, 15.1X49-D100, 
15.1X53-D230, 15.1X53-D47, 15.1X53-D57, 15.1X53-D63, 15.1X53-D70, 15.1X56-D62,
16.1R3-S3, 16.1R4-S1, 16.1R5, 16.2R1-S3, 16.2R2, 17.1R2, 17.2R1, and all 
subsequent releases.


The following software releases have been updated to OpenSSL 1.0.2k to resolve
these specific issues: 7.0R7, 7.1R3, 7.2R2, 7.3R2, 7.4R1, and all subsequent 


The following software releases have been updated to OpenSSL 1.0.2k to resolve
these specific issues: 7.1R4, 7.2R2, 7.3R3, 7.4R1, and all subsequent 

These issues are being tracked as PRs 1249517 (Junos OS), 1249823 (CTP), and 
1249814 (CTPView), and are visible on the Customer Support website.

KB16765 - "In which releases are vulnerabilities fixed?" describes which 
release vulnerabilities are fixed as per our End of Engineering and End of 
Life support policies.


Standard security best current practices (control plane firewall filters, edge
filtering, access lists, etc.) may protect against any remote malicious 

Junos OS:

Since SSL is used for remote network configuration and management applications
such as J-Web and SSL Service for JUNOScript (XNM-SSL), viable workarounds for
this issue in Junos may include:

Disabling J-Web

Disable SSL service for JUNOScript and only use Netconf, which makes use of 
SSH, to make configuration changes

Limit access to J-Web and XNM-SSL from only trusted networks

General Mitigation (CTP, CTPView)

It is good security practice to limit the exploitable attack surface of 
critical infrastructure networking equipment. Use access lists or firewall 
filters to limit access to the HTTPS or SSL/TLS services only from trusted, 
administrative networks or hosts.


How to obtain fixed software:

Security vulnerabilities in Junos are fixed in the next available Maintenance
Release of each supported Junos version. In some cases, a Maintenance Release
is not planned to be available in an appropriate time-frame. For these cases,
Service Releases are made available in order to be more timely. Security 
Advisory and Security Notices will indicate which Maintenance and Service 
Releases contain fixes for the issues described. Upon request to JTAC, 
customers will be provided download instructions for a Service Release. 
Although Juniper does not provide formal Release Note documentation for a 
Service Release, a list of "PRs fixed" can be provided on request.
