Introduction


Note Use this document in conjunction with the documents identified in Product Documentation. The online versions of the user documentation are also occasionally updated after the initial release. As a result, the information contained in the Cisco Security Manager end-user guides on Cisco.com supersedes any information contained in the context-sensitive help included with the product. For more information about specific changes, please see Where to Go Next.


This document contains release note information for the following:

Cisco Security Manager 4.1 (including Service Packs 1 and 2)—Cisco Security Manager (Security Manager) enables you to manage security policies on Cisco security devices. Security Manager supports integrated provisioning of firewall, VPN, and IPS services across IOS routers, PIX and ASA security appliances, IPS sensors and modules, and some services modules for Catalyst 6500 switches and some routers. (You can find complete device support information under Cisco Security Manager Compatibility Information on Cisco.com.) Security Manager also supports provisioning of many platform-specific settings, for example, interfaces, routing, identity, QoS, logging, and so on.

Security Manager efficiently manages a wide range of networks, from small networks consisting of a few devices to large networks with thousands of devices. Scalability is achieved through a rich feature set of device grouping capabilities and objects and policies that can be shared.

Auto Update Server 4.1—The Auto Update Server (AUS) is a tool for upgrading PIX security appliance software images, ASA software images, PIX Device Manager (PDM) images, Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) images, and PIX security appliance and ASA configuration files. Security appliances with dynamic IP addresses that use the auto update feature connect to AUS periodically to upgrade device configuration files and to pass device and status information.

Performance Monitor 4.1—Performance Monitor is a browser-based tool that monitors and troubleshoots the health and performance of services that contribute to network security. It helps you to isolate, analyze, and troubleshoot events in your network as they occur, so that you can increase service availability. Supported service types are remote-access VPN, site-to-site VPN, firewall, Web server load-balancing, and proxied SSL.


Note Before using Cisco Security Manager 4.1, we recommend that you read this entire document. In addition, it is critical that you read the Important Notes, the Installation Notes, and the Installation Guide for Cisco Security Manager 4.1 before installing or upgrading to Cisco Security Manager 4.1.

What's New

Cisco Security Manager 4.1 Service Pack 1 and 2

Security Manager 4.1 Service Packs 1 and 2 provide fixes for various problems. The service packs are cumulative, so applying a service pack will include all updates from earlier services packs. For more information about the problems fixed in each service pack, see the following:

Resolved Caveats—Release 4.1 Service Pack 2.

Resolved Caveats—Release 4.1 Service Pack 1.

Cisco Security Manager 4.1

In addition to resolved caveats, this release includes the following new features and enhancements:

Enterprise-class integrated Firewall, IPS, and VPN reporting functionality for improved visibility into security devices. Custom reports can be created using advanced filters, and reports can be viewed on-demand and scheduled for email delivery.

Support for IPv6 addressing in some policies and features for ASA devices in router mode (release 7.0+) and transparent mode (8.2+) and FWSM in router mode (3.1+). Note that you must configure an IPv4 management address for devices that use IPv6 addressing; Security Manager uses IPv4 for all communications with managed devices. The following configuration and features support IPv6 addressing:

Policy Objects—A new IPv6 network/host object for IPv6 addresses, and support for ICMP6 services in the services object.

Firewall Services—New policies for IPv6 access rules and IPv6 access control settings. The hit count and find and replace tools also work with the IPv6 access rules policy. There are new FlexConfig system variables to identify the IPv6 ACLs configured on a device.

ASA/FWSM platform policies—The interfaces policy lets you configure IPv6 addresses for interfaces. New bridging policies are IPv6 Neighbor Cache and Management Address (IPv6).

Event Viewer—IPv6 events are now fully parsed, and IPv6 addresses can appear in the Source, Destination, and IPLog Address columns. The following columns are deprecated: Source (IPv6), Destination (IPv6), IPLog Address (IPv6)

Advanced troubleshooting of operational issues using Packet Capture, ping, traceroute, and other tools, in addition to Event-to-Policy linkages and Cisco Packet Tracer tools.

A simplified method for defining an Extranet that is a point-to-point regular IPsec VPN to a device outside your management scope (such as one in the service provider's network, to a non-Cisco device, or to a device in a part of your network that you do not manage) has been added to the Site to Site VPN Manager.

There are new import and export features that are available from the File menu:

You can now export shared policies, including the policy objects used in the policies, and import them into another Security Manager server. This can help you maintain a consistent set of policies when using more than one Security Manager server.

You can now export devices with all policies, policy objects, certificates, Configuration Archive data, and associated VPN topologies, and import them into another Security Manager server. This simplifies the process of splitting a single server into two or more servers without having to rediscover policies. The export includes all shared policies and assignments, so the imported devices maintain shared-policy relationships.

Note that the existing device export feature (export to CSV file) has been moved to File > Export. In previous releases, the command was Tools > Export Inventory. The Export to CSV feature has not been changed; you can still export to CSV and add the devices through the New Device wizard.

Support for latest ASA 8.4 feature set, including the following features:

You can configure Kerberos Constrained Delegation to allow users to gain access to Kerberos-protected resources after they use non-Kerberos methods to log into a remote access VPN.

You can configure IKE version 2 (IKEv2) for regular IPsec site-to-site VPNs and remote access IPSec VPNs. When using IKEv2 in a remote access IPSec VPN, you must use the AnyConnect 3.0 VPN client. The configuration for IKEv2 is in many cases significantly different from the configuration of IKEv1. For example, when configuring a remote access IPSec VPN for IKEv2, you must also configure several policies that used to be specific to SSL VPNs, such as the SSL VPN Access policy. Review the documentation carefully before implementing IKEv2.

You can define up to 48 logical EtherChannel interfaces, each of which consists of between zero and eight active Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, or Ten-Gigabit Ethernet ports. Also called a "port-channel" interface, this provides increased bandwidth and fault tolerance over the individual links. An EtherChannel interface is configured and used in the same manner as a physical interface.

A number of additional Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) traps are available for these ASAs. Specific traps include Fan Failure, CPU Temperature, Power-Supply Failure, NAT Packet Discard, and Memory Threshold.

Operating system support as follows:

Strongly Recommended: Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server—64-bit.

Alternate operating system that also is supported: Windows 2008 Enterprise Server (Service Pack 2)—64-bit only.

Beginning with the ASA 8.4.1 and FWSM 3.1, operating in transparent mode, you can increase the number of interfaces available to a device or context through use of bridge groups. You can configure up to eight bridge groups—on an FWSM each group can contain two interfaces; on an ASA each group can contain four interfaces.

Maximum number of virtual contexts supported on ASA 5550 and 5580 devices increased from 50 to 100 on the 5550, and from 50 to 250 on the 5580. Note that from a licensing standpoint, each context is considered to be a separate device; be sure you have enough licenses to support the intended number of contexts.

Increasing the number of virtual contexts supported requires also increasing the number of VLANs supported. Thus, the maximum number of VLANs supported increased from 256 to 400 on the 5550, and from 256 to 1024 on the 5580.

Support for Configuration Engine 3.5 and 3.5(1).

Support for Cisco 1900 Series Integrated Services Routers models 1905 and 1921.

Support for Cisco IOS XE Software release 3.1.x on ASRs. This release is mapped to 15.0(1)S in Security Manager.

The following enhancements are available in the Event Viewer application in addition to IPv6 support:

Supports for the following new syslog messages: Etherchannel 426001-426003; SNMP NAT MIB 202010; additional SNMP traps 321005-321006; IKEv1 713001-713259, 714001-714011, 715001-715080; IKEv2 743001-743009, 744001-744016, 745001-745016.

You can now use Event Viewer with FWSM running software releases 3.1.17+, 3.2.17+, 4.0.10+, and 4.1.1+.

You can configure an extended event storage area on directly-attached storage, such as SAN storage connected through fiber channel. Event Viewer automatically copies data to extended storage and retrieves it whenever an event query includes events that are in extended storage.

The status bar now shows the current events per second (EPS) rate and a color-coded icon that indicates the health of the system. Clicking the icon provides statistics for the past five minutes and system alerts concerning packet drops or other critical situations that require your attention.

There are new ACS privileges to control access to Event Viewer and for selecting or deselecting devices for monitoring.

You can now view host object names instead of IP addresses as the source and destination of events.

You can now view IP logs for IPS Alert events using an external packet analyzer tool.

Activity or Configuration Session Change reports now include changes to VPN topologies and remote access VPN policies.

During remote access VPN policy discovery, Security Manager now discovers the default tunnel groups (connection profiles) for IPSec and SSL connections, including the default group policy: DefaultRAGroup, DefaultWEBVPNGroup, and DfltGrpPolicy. You can now manage these default objects through Security Manager.

You can now use Smart Tunnel Auto Sign-on lists when configuring Clientless SSL VPN on ASA 5500 devices running software version 7.1(1) and later.

You can now upload Hostscan packages to an ASA device.

You can now manage IPS certificates using Security Manager. You can ensure that Security Manager has the correct certificates to communicate using HTTPS (SSL) and regenerate certificates before or after they expire. Select Manage > IPS > IPS Certificates in Configuration Manager.

The IPS license management feature has been modified so that license updates are performed without obtaining a lock on the device. Also, automated license update job configuration has been simplified, and you can now configure the job to provide e-mail notifications of pending license expirations and the results of the daily license update job.


Note If you upgrade from 4.0.1 to 4.1, and you have an automatic license update job configured, that job configuration is converted to a daily job at midnight, checking for licenses that expire on the same day. You should reconfigure the job to meet your requirements and to add e-mail addresses for notification purposes.


Improvements in problem resolution, including:

Added details to system messages that instruct you to contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC).

The partial_backup.pl command for generating partial database backups for use by Cisco TAC. These backups are not usable as a normal database backup.

The ability to create deployment and discovery reports that you can send to Cisco TAC for problem analysis.

Some actions that can take a long time to complete now have more informative status dialog boxes to show you the current status of the actions. Affected actions include activity validation, activity submission, activity approval, and preview configuration.

The User Interface has been reorganized in some areas, specifically:

You can now directly open the Configuration Manager, Event Viewer, or Report Manager applications from the Windows start menu. You can also open each of these applications from within any application. In previous versions of Security Manager, there was a single client view; the traditional client is now called Configuration Manager.

There are new toolbar buttons available for selection in Configuration Manager. To add them to the toolbar, select View > Customized Toolbar.

Some commands on the Tools menu have been moved to other menus, including two new menus, Manage and Launch. Some other commands have been renamed. Table 2 shows the old and new commands.

Installation Notes

Customers upgrading from Cisco Security Manager 3.x are required to purchase the appropriate Cisco Security Manager 4.x license. Details about Cisco Security Manager licensing can be found in the datasheet at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6498/products_data_sheets_list.html.

Cisco Security Manager 4.0 customers with a valid Cisco Software Application Support (SAS) Service contract for Cisco Security Manager may upgrade to Cisco Security Manager 4.1 at no charge, but must download a new license file using the Product Upgrade Tool at http://tools.cisco.com/gct/Upgrade/jsp/index.jsp. Customers will enter their SAS Contract Number into the tool and will receive a new license file via email.

If no license is provided during installation, the resulting installation will be an evaluation version. If you provide an invalid license during installation, an error message prompts you for a valid license (but installation is not aborted).

Do not modify casuser (the default service account) or directory permissions that are established during the installation of the product. Doing so can lead to problems with your being able to do the following:

Logging in to the web server

Logging in to the client

Performing successful backups of all databases

For the server, Windows Server 2003 is no longer supported, and Windows Server 2008—32-bit is no longer supported. For the server, operating system support is as follows:

Strongly Recommended: Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server—64-bit.

Alternate operating system that also is supported: Windows 2008 Enterprise Server (Service Pack 2)—64-bit only.

For the client workstation, Windows Server 2003 is no longer supported, Windows Vista is no longer supported, and Windows Server 2008—32-bit is no longer supported. For the client workstation, operating system support is as follows:

Windows XP (Service Pack 3).

Windows 7 Enterprise Edition—64-bit and 32-bit.

Windows 2008 Enterprise Server (Service Pack 2)—64-bit only.

Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server—64-bit.

Internet Explorer 8 is supported, but only in Compatibility View. To use Compatibility View, open Internet Explorer 8, go to Tools > Compatibility View Settings, and add the Security Manager server as a "website to be displayed in Compatibility View."

On the Cisco Security Manager server, you must deselect (clear) the checkbox "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" in Windows Server 2008. The navigation path to this checkbox is Computer > Properties > Advanced System Settings > Performance > Settings > Advanced > Virtual Memory > Change.

Memory Reservation Framework (MRF), a new feature, provides Cisco Security Manager administrators the capability to modify heap sizes of key processes; doing so can enhance the performance of the server.


Note Configuring a process heap size is a critical procedure that can affect the performance of Security Manager, so Cisco recommends that it be done only under the guidance of application experts. Also, as a precautionary measure, Cisco recommends that you save your existing memory configurations for processes before changing them; and MRF provides two methods for doing so.


The Security Manager client is installed as an application suite that consists of three applications—Configuration Manager, Event Viewer, and Report Manager. Each can be launched independently in one of the following three ways:

Start > Programs > Cisco Security Manager Client > [choose one of the following] Configuration Manager, Event Viewer, or Report Manager

desktop icon

[after starting one of the applications] Launch > [choose a different one of the applications in the Security Manager client application suite]

You can install Security Manager server software directly, or you can upgrade the software on a server where Security Manager is installed. The Installation Guide for Cisco Security Manager for this release of the product explains which previous Security Manager releases are supported for upgrade and provides important information regarding server requirements, server configuration, and post-installation tasks.

Before you can successfully upgrade to Security Manager 4.1 from a prior version of Security Manager, you must make sure that the Security Manager database does not contain any pending data, in other words, data that has not been committed to the database. If the Security Manager database contains pending data, you must commit or discard all uncommitted changes, then back up your database before you perform the upgrade. The Installation Guide for Cisco Security Manager for this release contains complete instructions on the steps required for preparing the database for upgrade.

We do not support installation of Security Manager on a server that is running any other web server or database server (for example, IIS or MS-SQL). Doing so might cause unexpected problems that may prevent you from logging into or using Cisco Security Manager.

Be aware of the following important points before you upgrade:

Ensure that all applications that you are upgrading are currently functioning correctly, and that you can create valid backups (that is, the backup process completes without error). If an application is not functioning correctly before an upgrade, the upgrade process might not result in a correctly functioning application.


Note It has come to Cisco's attention that some users make undocumented and unsupported modifications to the system so that the backup process does not back up all installed CiscoWorks applications. The upgrade process documented in the installation guide assumes that you have not subverted the intended functioning of the system. If you are creating backups that back up less than all of the data, you are responsible for ensuring you have all backup data that you require before performing an update. We strongly suggest that you undo these unsupported modifications. Otherwise, you should probably not attempt to do an inline upgrade, where you install the product on the same server as the older version; instead, install the updated applications on a new, clean server and restore your database backups.


If you upgrade from release 4.0.1 to release 4.1, and you use Cisco Configuration Engine, you must upgrade Configuration Engine to 3.5 or 3.5(1) at the same time. Security Manager 4.1 does not support older versions of Configuration Engine.

If you install RME on the same server as Security Manager, do not apply the MDF.zip file available with the RME IDU patch. Applying this file will damage the device support files in Security Manager, and you will need to contact Cisco Technical Support to correct the problem. If you install RME on a server separate from Cisco Security Manager, this restriction does not apply.

Service Pack 2 Download and Installation Instructions

Service pack 2 is a cumulative update that also includes the updates that were found in service pack 1. You can apply Cisco Security Manager 4.1 Service Pack 2 to a Cisco Security Manager 4.1 installation whether that installation has an earlier service pack installed or not.

To download and install service pack 2, follow these steps:


Step 1 Go to http://www.cisco.com/go/csmanager, and then click Download Software under the Support heading on the right side of the screen.

Step 2 Enter your user name and password to log in to Cisco.com.

Step 3 Click Security Manager (CSM) Software, expand the 4.1 folder under All Releases, and then click 4.1sp2.

Step 4 Download the file fcs-csm-410-sp2-win-k9.exe.

Step 5 To install the service pack, close all open applications, including the Cisco Security Manager Client.

Step 6 If Cisco Security Agent is installed on your server, manually stop the Cisco Security Agent service from Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.

Step 7 Run the fcs-csm-410-sp2-win-k9.exe file that you previously downloaded.

Step 8 In the Install Cisco Security Manager 4.1 Service Pack 2 dialog box, click Next and then click Install in the next screen.

Step 9 After the updated files have been installed, click Finish to complete the installation.

Step 10 On each client machine that is used to connect to the Security Manager server, you must perform the following steps to apply the service pack before you can connect to the server using that client:

a. If Cisco Security Agent is installed on the client, manually stop the Cisco Security Agent service from Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.

b. Launch the Security Manager client.

You will be prompted to "Download Service Pack".

c. Download the service pack and then launch the downloaded file to apply the service pack.

Step 11 (Optional) Go to the client installation directory and clear the cache, for example, <Client Install Directory>/cache.


Important Notes

The following notes apply to the Security Manager 4.1 release:

You cannot use Security Manager to manage an ASA 8.3+ device if you enable password encryption using the password encryption aes command. You must turn off password encryption before you can add the device to the Security Manager inventory.

If you upgrade an ASA to release 8.3(x) or higher from 8.2(x) or lower, you must delete the device from the Security Manager inventory and add it back again for the policies to work correctly.

ASA 8.3 ACLs use the real IP address of a device, rather than the translated (NAT) address. During upgrade, rules are converted to use the real IP address. All other device types, and older ASA versions, used the NAT address in ACLs.

The device memory requirements for ASA 8.3 are higher than for older ASA releases. Ensure that the device meets the minimum memory requirement, as explained in the ASA documentation, before upgrade. Security Manager blocks deployment to devices that do not meet the minimum requirement.

If you have a device that uses commands that were unsupported in previous versions of Security Manager, these commands are not automatically populated into Security Manager as part of the upgrade to this version of Security Manager. If you deploy back to the device, these commands are removed from the device because they are not part of the target policies configured in Security Manager. We recommend that you set the correct values for the newly added attributes in Security Manager so that the next deployment will correctly provision these commands. You can also rediscover the platform settings from the device; however, you will need to take necessary steps to save and restore any shared Security Manager policies that are assigned to the device.

A Cisco Services for IPS service license is required for the installation of signature updates on IPS 5.x+ appliances, Catalyst and ASA service modules, and router network modules.

Do not connect to the database directly, because doing so can cause performance reductions and unexpected system behavior.

Do not run SQL queries against the database.

If an online help page displays blank in your browser view, refresh the browser.

Cisco Secure ACS 5.0 is not supported by Security Manager 4.1.

If you do not manage IPS devices, consider taking the following performance tuning step. In $NMSROOT\MDC\ips\etc\sensorupdate.properties, change the value of packageMonitorInterval from its initial default value of 30,000 milliseconds to a less-frequent value of 600,000 milliseconds. Taking this step will improve performance somewhat. [$NMSROOT is the full pathname of the Common Services installation directory (the default is C:\Program Files\CSCOpx).]

The IPS packages included with Security Manager do not include the package files that are required for updating IPS devices. You must download IPS packages from Cisco.com or your local update server before you can apply any updates. The downloaded versions include all required package files and replace the partial files that are included in the Security Manager initial installation.
