Table 1-1 SIP Phone Security Profile Information Fields

Field
Required
Setting

Name

Yes

Enter a name for the security profile.

When you save the new profile, the name displays in the Device Security Profile drop-down list box in the Phone Configuration window for the phone type and protocol.

Tip Include the device model and protocol in the security profile name to help you find the correct profile when you are searching for or updating a profile.

Description

Enter a description for the security profile.

Nonce Validity Time

Yes

Enter the number of minutes (in seconds) that the nonce value is valid. The default value equals 600 (10 minutes). When the time expires, Cisco Unified CM generates a new value.

Device Security Mode

Yes

Choose Encrypted from the drop-down menu (recommended).

Encrypted mode allows Cisco Unified CM to provide integrity, authentication, and encryption for the phone. A TLS connection that uses AES128/SHA opens for signaling, and SRTP carries the media for all phone calls on all SRTP-capable SIP hops.

Note The Media is Encrypted icon (closed lock) is displayed on the screen only when the Device Security mode is set to encrypted and cluster security mode is set to 1 (mixed mode).

To configure and verify cluster security mode, see the Verifying the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Mode section of the Cisco TelePresence Security Solutions Guide .

Additional Device Security Mode field choices:

  • Non Secure—No security features except image authentication exist for the phone. A TCP connection opens to Cisco Unified CM.
  • Authenticated—Cisco Unified CM provides integrity and authentication for the phone. A TLS connection that uses NULL/SHA opens.

Transport Type

Yes

When Device Security Mode is Non Secure, choose one of the following options from the drop-down list box (not all options may display):

  • TCP—Choose the Transmission Control Protocol to ensure that packets get received in the same order they are sent. This protocol ensures that no packets get dropped, but the protocol does not provide any security.
  • UDP—Choose the User Datagram Protocol to ensure that packets are received quickly. This protocol, which can drop packets, does not ensure that packets are received in the order that they are sent. This protocol does not provide any security.
  • TCP + UDP—Choose this option if you want to use a combination of TCP and UDP. This option does not provide any security.

When Device Security Mode is Authenticated or Encrypted, TLS specifies the Transport Type. TLS provides signaling integrity, device authentication, and signaling encryption (encrypted mode only) for SIP phones.

Note If Device Security Mode cannot be configured in the profile, the transport type specifies UDP.

Enable Digest Authentication

Not supported on CTS devices. Leave this box unchecked.

TFTP Encrypted Config

When this box is checked, Cisco Unified CM encrypts phone downloads from the TFTP server. This option exists for Cisco phones only.

Tip Cisco recommends that you enable this option and configure a symmetric key to secure digest credentials and administrative passwords.

Exclude Digest Credentials in Configuration File

When this box is checked, Cisco Unified CM omits digest credentials in phone downloads from the TFTP server. This option exists for Cisco Unified IP SIP Phone models 7905, 7912, 7940, and 7960 only.

Click Save to save your settings.

 

Table 1-12 Cisco TelePresence Secure Shell Settings

Field
Required?
Setting

SSH Admin User

Yes

Username for the Secure Shell account. Used for SSH access and to access the Cisco TelePresence administration interface. Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) uses secure shell for troubleshooting and debugging. Contact TAC for further assistance. Default user name is admin. The length of this username can be between 6 and 64 characters. This username supports CLI multi-level access (MLA).

Do not use any of the following user names: apache , daemon , help , helpdesk , nobody , operator , or shutdown .

Usernames and passwords can contain upper and lower case alphanumeric characters and the underscore and dash characters. User names cannot start with a - (dash) or _ (underscore).

Note for SSH admin and SSH helpdesk user names: You cannot swap the SSH admin user name and the SSH Helpdesk user name without performing an interim user name change. For example, given an admin user name of minad and a helpdesk name of deskhelp , perform the following steps to change the admin name to deskhelp and the helpdesk name to minad :

1. Change the admin user name to a temporary password (for example, admintemp ) and change the helpdesk name to minad .

2. Click Save , then click Apply Config .

3. Wait until the “Calls Not Possible” pop-up screen disappears from the Touch Device.

4. Change the admin user name to deskhelp .

SSH Admin Password

Yes

Password for the SSH account to be used for SSH access and to access the Cisco TelePresence Web Administration interface. Default password is cisco.

  • Maximum field length is 64 characters.
  • Minimum field length is 6 characters.

SSH Admin Life

Yes

Sets the password expiration duration to ensure that the system is protected when using Cisco TelePresence Command Line Interface (CLI). You must periodically update this password. See Figure 1-13 to see updated SSH fields that are used to update your password.

Password expiration can be set to have a value between 0 and 365. A setting of 0 disables password aging. Default is 60 days. Unless the configured life has been disabled (by being set to 0), password age is set to have 2 days remaining in the following situations:

  • New installations and factory resets.
  • Software upgrades (if the password age is less than the configured age).
  • Password recovery (using the pwrecovery command).

An on-screen warning message is sent to the CLI user when 14 days remain on the current password, and so on until the password expires. If the password is allowed to expire, the system ignores the CLI login attempt and the user cannot access the system unless a new password is created by entering information in the SSH Information Area window.

Save your changes by clicking Restart. This enables the updated configuration to be read, applied to the CTS, and then Calling Service is restarted. Alternately you can click Reset, which causes the CTS to reboot. On startup, the CTS reads the Unified CM configuration and applies any changes.

See the Cisco TelePresence System Command-Line Interface Reference Guide for more information.

SSH Helpdesk User

Yes

Username for the Helpdesk user secure shell account. Used for SSH access and to access the Cisco TelePresence administration interface. Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) uses secure shell for troubleshooting and debugging. Contact TAC for further assistance. Default user name is helpdesk. The length of this username can be between 6 and 64 characters.

The helpdesk user has limited access to the CLI and no set commands are allowed.

Do not use any of the following user names: admin , apache , daemon , nobody , operator , or shutdown .

User names and passwords can contain upper and lower case alphanumeric characters and the underscore and dash characters. User names cannot start with a - (dash) or _ (underscore).

Note for SSH admin and SSH helpdesk user names: You cannot swap the SSH admin user name and the SSH Helpdesk user name without performing an interim user name change.
