Software Authentication Manager Commands

Software Authentication Manager Commands

This module describes the Cisco IOS XR software commands used to configure Software Authentication Manager (SAM).

For detailed information about SAM concepts, configuration tasks, and examples, see the Configuring Software Authentication Manager on the Cisco IOS XR Software module in the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide for the Cisco CRS Router Software configuration module.

sam add certificate

To add a new certificate to the certificate table, use the sam add certificate command.

sam add certificate filepath location { trust | untrust }

Syntax Description

filepath

Absolute path to the source location of the certificate.

location

Storage site of the certificate. Use one of the following: root, mem, disk0, disk1, or other flash device name on router.

trust

Adds the certificate to the certificate table without validation by the Software Authentication Manager (SAM). To add a root certificate, you must use the trust keyword. Adding a root certificate with the untrust keyword is not allowed.

untrust

Adds the certificate to the certificate table after the SAM has validated it. Adding a root certificate with the untrust keyword is not allowed. To add a root certificate, you must use the trust keyword.

Command Default

None

Command Modes

EXEC

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 2.0

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

For security reasons, the sam add certificate command can be issued only from the console or auxiliary port of the networking device; the command cannot be issued from a Telnet connection to any other interface on the networking device.

The certificate must be copied to the network device before it can be added to the certificate table. If the certificate is already present in the certificate table, the SAM rejects the attempt to add it.

When adding root certificates, follow these guidelines:

  • Only the certificate authority (CA) root certificate can be added to the root location.
  • To add a root certificate, you must use the trust keyword. Adding the root certificate with the untrust keyword is not allowed.

Use of the trust keyword assumes that you received the new certificate from a source that you trust, and therefore have enough confidence in its authenticity to bypass validation by the SAM. One example of acquiring a certificate from a trusted source is downloading it from a CA server (such as Cisco.com) that requires user authentication. Another example is acquiring the certificate from a person or entity that you can verify, such as by checking the identification badge for a person. If you bypass the validation protection offered by the SAM, you must verify the identity and integrity of the certificate by some other valid process.

Certificates added to the memory (mem) location validate software installed in memory. Certificates added to the disk0 or disk1 location validate software installed on those devices, respectively.


Note


If the sam add certificate command fails with a message indicating that the certificate has expired, the networking device clock may have been set incorrectly. Use the show clock command to determine if the clock is set correctly.

Examples

The following example shows how to add the certificate found at /bootflash/ca.bin to the certificate table in the root location without first validating the certificate:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# sam add certificate /bootflash/ca.bin root trust

SAM: Successful adding certificate /bootflash/ca.bin

The following example shows how to add the certificate found at /bootflash/css.bin to the certificate table in the memory (mem) location after validating the certificate:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# sam add certificate /bootflash/css.bin mem untrust

SAM: Successful adding certificate /bootflash/css.bin

Related Commands

Command

Description

sam delete certificate

Deletes a certificate from the certificate table.

show sam certificate

Displays records in the certificate table, including the location of the certificates.

show clock

Displays networking device clock information.

For more information, see

Cisco IOS XR System Management Command Reference for the Cisco CRS Router.

sam delete certificate

To delete a certificate from the certificate table, use the sam delete certificate command.

sam delete certificate location certificate-index

Syntax Description

location

Storage site of the certificate. Use one of the following: root, mem, disk0, disk1, or other flash device name on the router.

certificate-index

Number in the range from 1 to 65000.

Command Default

None

Command Modes

EXEC

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 2.0

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

For security reasons, the sam delete certificate command can be issued only from the console port of the networking device; the command cannot be issued from a Telnet connection to any other interface on the networking device.

Use the show sam certificate summary command to display certificates by their index numbers.

Because the certificate authority (CA) certificate must not be unknowingly deleted, the Software Authentication Manager (SAM) prompts the user for confirmation when an attempt is made to delete the CA certificate.

If a certificate stored on the system is no longer valid (for example, if the certificate has expired), you can use the sam delete certificate command to remove the certificate from the list.

The following example shows how to cancel the deletion of the certificate identified by the index number 1 from the root location:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# sam delete certificate root 1

Do you really want to delete the root CA certificate (Y/N): N
SAM: Delete certificate (index 1) canceled

The following example shows how to delete the certificate identified by the index number 1 from the root location:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# sam delete certificate root 1

Do you really want to delete the root CA certificate (Y/N): Y
SAM: Successful deleting certificate index 1

Command

Description

sam add certificate

Adds a new certificate to the certificate table.

show sam certificate

Displays records in the certificate table, including the location of the certificates stored.

sam prompt-interval

To set the interval that the Software Authentication Manager (SAM) waits after prompting the user for input when it detects an abnormal condition at boot time and to determine how the SAM responds when it does not receive user input within the specified interval, use the sam prompt-interval command. To reset the prompt interval and response to their default values, use the no form of this command.

sam prompt-interval time-interval { proceed | terminate }

no sam prompt-interval time-interval { proceed | terminate }

Syntax Description

time-interval

Prompt time, in the range from 0 to 300 seconds.

proceed

Causes the SAM to respond as if it had received a “yes” when the prompt interval expires.

terminate

Causes the SAM to respond as if it had received a “no” when the prompt interval expires.

Command Default

The default response is for the SAM to wait 10 seconds and then terminate the authentication task.

Command Modes

Global configuration

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 2.0

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

Use the sam prompt-interval command to control the action taken when the system detects an exception condition, such as an expired certificate during initialization of the SAM at boot time. The following message appears when the software detects the abnormal condition of a certificate authority (CA) certificate expired:

SAM detects expired CA certificate. Continue at risk (Y/N):

The SAM waits at the prompt until you respond or the time interval controlled by the sam prompt-interval command expires, whichever is the earlier event. If you respond “N” to the prompt, the boot process is allowed to complete, but no packages can be installed.

The following message appears when the software detects the abnormal condition of a Code Signing Server (CSS) certificate expired:

SAM detects CA certificate (Code Signing Server Certificate Authority) has expired. The validity period is Oct 17, 2000 01:46:24 UTC - Oct 17, 2015 01:51:47 UTC. Continue at risk? (Y/N) [Default:N w/in 10]:

If you do not respond to the prompt, the SAM waits for the specified interval to expire, and then it takes the action specified in the sam prompt-interval command (either the proceed or terminate keyword).

If you enter the command with the proceed keyword, the SAM waits for the specified interval to expire, and then it proceeds as if you had given a “yes” response to the prompt.

If you enter the command with the terminate keyword, the SAM waits for the specified interval to expire, and then it proceeds as if you had given a “no” response to the prompt. This use of the command keeps the system from waiting indefinitely when the system console is unattended.


Note


After the software has booted up, the time-interval argument set using this command has no effect. This value applies at boot time only.

Command

Description

show sam sysinfo

Displays the current status information for the SAM.

sam verify

To use the Message Digest 5 (MD5) hash algorithm to verify the integrity of the software component on a flash memory card and ensure that it has not been tampered with during transit, use the sam verify command.

sam verify { location | file-system } { MD5 | SHA [digest] }

Syntax Description

location

Name of the flash memory card slot, either disk0 or disk1.

file-system

Absolute path to the file to be verified.

MD5

Specifies a one-way hashing algorithm to generate a 128-bit hash (or message digest) of the specified software component.

SHA

Specifies the Secure Hash Algorithm, a hashing algorithm that takes a message of less than 264 bits in length and produces a 160-bit message digest. The large message digest provides security against brute-force collision and inversion attacks.

digest

(Optional) Message digest generated by the hashing algorithm, to be compared in determining the integrity of the software component.

Command Default

None

Command Modes

EXEC

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 2.0

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

Use the sam verify command to generate a message digest for a given device. The message digest is useful for determining whether software on a flash memory card has been tampered with during transit. The command generates a hash code that can be used to compare the integrity of the software between the time it was shipped and the time you received it.

For example, if you are given a flash memory card with preinstalled software and a previously generated MD5 message digest, you can verify the integrity of the software using the sam verify command:

sam verify device MD5 digest

The device argument specifies the flash device. The digest argument specifies the message digest supplied by the originator of the software.

If the message digest matches the message digest generated by the sam verify command, the software component is valid.


Note


You should calculate the hash code on the contents of the flash memory code at the destination networking device using a different set of files from the one loaded on the flash memory card. It is possible for an unauthorized person to use the same software version to produce the desired (matching) hash code and thereby disguise that someone has tampered with the new software.

Examples

The example shows a third sam verify command, issued with a mismatched message digest, to show the Software Authentication Manager (SAM) response to a mismatch. The following example shows how to use MD5 to generate a message digest on the entire file system on the flash memory card in slot 0 and then use that message digest as input to perform the digest comparison:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# sam verify disk0: MD5

Total file count in disk0: = 813
082183cb6e65a44fd7ca95fe8e93def6

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# sam verify disk0: MD5 082183cb6e65a44fd7ca95fe8e93def6

Total file count in disk0: = 813
Same digest values

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# sam verify disk0: MD5 3216c9282d97ee7a40b78a4e401158bd

Total file count in disk0: = 813
Different digest values

The following example shows how to use MD5 to generate a message digest and then uses that message digest as input to perform the digest comparison:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# sam verify disk0: /crl_revoked.bin MD5

38243ffbbe6cdb7a12fa9fa6452956ac

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# sam verify disk0: /crl_revoked.bin MD5 38243ffbbe6cdb7a12fa9fa6452956ac

Examples

The following sample output is from the show sam sysinfo command:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# show sam sysinfo

Software Authentication Manager System Information
==============================================
Status                  : running
Prompt Interval         : 10 sec
Prompt Default Response : NO

This table describes the significant fields shown in the display.

Table 6 show sam sysinfo Field Descriptions

Field

Description

Status

One of the following: running or not running.

If the SAM is not running, the System Manager should detect that state and attempt to restart the SAM. If problems prevent the System Manager from restarting the SAM after a predefined number of repeated attempts, the SAM will not be restarted. In such a case, you should contact Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) personnel.

Prompt Interval

Current setting for the prompt interval. The interval can be set in the range from 0 to 300 seconds. The value shown in the sample output (10 seconds) is the default.

Prompt Default Response

Current setting that specifies the action taken by the SAM if the prompt interval expires before the user responds to the prompt. If the user does not respond to the prompt, the SAM waits for the specified interval to expire and then takes the action specified in the sam prompt-interval command (either proceed keyword or terminate keyword).

Entering the sam promptinterval command with the proceed keyword causes the show sam sysinfo command to display “Yes,” meaning that the default action taken by the SAM is to wait for the prompt interval to expire and then respond as if it had received a “yes” from the user.

Entering the sam promptinterval command with the terminate keyword causes the show sam sysinfo command to display “No,” meaning that the default action taken by the SAM is to wait for the prompt interval to expire and then respond as if it had received a “no” from the user.

Related Commands

Command

Description

sam prompt-interval

Sets the interval that the SAM waits after prompting the user for input when it detects an abnormal condition and determines how the SAM responds when it does not receive user input within the specified interval.
