Citrix ADC

Support for DTLS protocol

Notes:

  • DTLSv1.0 protocol is supported on Citrix ADC MPX/SDX (N2 and N3 based), VPX, and MPX 14000 FIPS appliances. It is not supported on external HSMs.
  • DTLS 1.0 protocol is supported on Citrix ADC appliances containing Intel Coleto SSL chips (from release 12.1 build 50.x).
  • DTLSv1.2 protocol is supported on the front-end of Citrix ADC VPX appliances (from release 13.0 build 47.x).
  • DTLS 1.2 protocol is supported on the front-end of Citrix ADC appliances containing Intel Coleto SSL chips (from release 13.0 build 52.x). For more information about the platforms containing Intel Coleto SSL chips, see Support for Intel Coleto SSL chip based platforms.
  • Service groups of type DTLS are not supported.
  • DTLSv1.2 protocol is supported on the front-end of Citrix ADC MPX (N3 based) appliances (from release 13.0 build 58.x).
  • For information about Enlightened Data Transport (EDT) support for Citrix Gateway, see HDX enlightened data transport support.
  • There are changes made to the DTLS profile from release 13.0 build 79.x. For more information, see DTLS profile.
  • From release 13.0 build 82.x, a new parameter “maxBadmacIgnorecount “ is introduced in the DTLS profile to ignore bad MAC records received in a DTLS session. For more information, see DTLS profile.

The SSL and TLS protocols have traditionally been used to secure streaming traffic. Both of these protocols are based on TCP, which is slow. Also, TLS cannot handle lost or reordered packets.

UDP is the preferred protocol for audio and video applications, such as Lync, Skype, iTunes, YouTube, training videos, and flash. However, UDP is not secure or reliable. The DTLS protocol is designed to secure data over UDP and is used for applications such as media streaming, VOIP, and online gaming for communication. In DTLS, each handshake message is assigned a specific sequence number within that handshake. When a peer receives a handshake message, it can quickly determine whether that message is the next one expected. If it is, the peer processes the message. If not, the message is queued for handling after all the previous messages have been received.

Create a DTLS virtual server and a service of type UDP. By default, a DTLS profile (nsdtls_default_profile) is bound to the virtual server. Optionally, you can create and bind a user-defined DTLS profile to the virtual server.

Note: RC4 ciphers are not supported on a DTLS virtual server.

DTLS configuration

You can use the command line (CLI) or the configuration utility (GUI) to configure DTLS on your ADC appliance.

Note: From release 13.0 build 47.x, the DTLS 1.2 protocol is supported on the front end of a Citrix ADC VPX appliance. While configuring a DTLSv1.2 virtual server, specify DTLS12. Default is DTLS1.

At the command prompt, type:

set ssl vserver DTLS [-dtls1 ( ENABLED | DISABLED )] [-dtls12 ( ENABLED | DISABLED )]

Create a DTLS configuration by using the CLI

At the command prompt, type:

add lb vserver <vserver_name> DTLS <IPAddress>  <port>
add service  <service_name>  <IPAddress> UDP 443
bind lb vserver  <vserver_name>  <udp_service_name>
<!--NeedCopy-->

The following steps are optional:

add dtlsProfile dtls-profile -maxretryTime <positive_integer>
set ssl vserver <vserver_name> -dtlsProfileName <dtls_profile_name>
<!--NeedCopy-->

Create a DTLS configuration by using the GUI

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Virtual Servers.
  2. Create a virtual server of type DTLS, and bind a UDP service to the virtual server.
  3. A default DTLS profile is bound to the DTLS virtual server. To bind a different profile, in SSL Parameters, select a different DTLS profile. To create a profile, click the plus (+) next to DTLS Profile.

Support for SNI on a DTLS virtual server

For information about SNI, see Configure an SNI virtual server for secure hosting of multiple sites.

Configure SNI on a DTLS virtual server by using the CLI

Workaround: Manually disable session reuse on a DTLS service. At the CLI, type:

set ssl service <dtls-service-name> -sessReuse DISABLED

DTLS profile

A DTLS profile with the default settings is automatically bound to a DTLS virtual server. However, you can create a DTLS profile with specific settings to suit your requirement.

Use a DTLS profile with a DTLS virtual server or a VPN DTLS virtual server. You cannot use an SSL profile with a DTLS virtual server.

Note:

Change the maximum record size setting in the DTLS profile based on the changes in MTU and packet size. For example, the default max record size of 1459 bytes is calculated based on an IPv4 address header size. With IPv6 records, the header size is larger and therefore the maximum record size must be reduced to meet the following criteria.

max record size + UDP header(8bytes) + IP header size < MTU

Example:

Default DTLS profile
    1) Name: nsdtls_default_profile
    PMTU Discovery: DISABLED
    Max Record Size: 1459 bytes
    Max Retry Time: 3 sec
    Hello Verify Request: ENABLED
    Terminate Session: DISABLED
    Max Packet Count: 120 bytes

Custom DTLS profile
    1) Name: ns_dtls_profile_ipv6_1
    PMTU Discovery: DISABLED
    Max Record Size: 1450 bytes
    Max Retry Time: 3 sec
    Hello Verify Request: ENABLED
    Terminate Session: DISABLED
    Max Packet Count: 120 bytes
<!--NeedCopy-->

Create a DTLS profile by using the CLI

Notes: From release 13.0 build 79.x, the changes to the DTLS profile are as follows:

  • The helloverifyrequest parameter is enabled by default. Enabling this parameter helps mitigate the risk of an attacker or bots overwhelming the network throughput, potentially leading to outbound bandwidth exhaustion. That is, it helps mitigate the DTLS DDoS amplification attack.
  • The maxHoldQlen parameter is added. This parameter defines the number of datagrams that can be queued at the DTLS layer for processing. A high value of the maxHoldQlen parameter can cause memory buildup at the DTLS layer if UDP multiplexing is transmitting high UDP traffic. Therefore, configuring a lower value is recommended. Minimum value is 32, maximum value is 65535, and default value is 32.

From release 13.0 build 82.x, a new parameter maxBadmacIgnorecount is introduced in the DTLS profile to ignore bad MAC records received in a DTLS session. Using this parameter, bad records up to the value set in the parameter are ignored. The appliance terminates the session only after the limit is reached and sends an alert. This parameter setting is effective only when the “terminateSession” parameter is enabled.

ssl dtlsProfile <name> -maxRetryTime <positive_integer> -helloVerifyRequest ( ENABLED | DISABLED ) -terminateSession (ENABLED | DISABLED ) -maxHoldQLen <positive_integer> -maxBadmacIgnorecount <positive_integer>

helloVerifyRequest
              Send a Hello Verify request to validate the client.
              Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED
              Default value: ENABLED

terminateSession
              Terminate the session if the message authentication code (MAC)
              of the client and server do not match.
              Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED
              Default value: DISABLED

maxHoldQLen
              Maximum number of datagrams that can be queued at DTLS layer for
              processing
              Default value: 32
              Minimum value: 32
              Maximum value: 65535

maxBadmacIgnorecount
              Maximum number of bad MAC errors to ignore for a connection prior disconnect. Disabling parameter terminateSession
terminates session immediately when bad MAC is detected in the connection.
              Default value: 100
              Minimum value: 1
              Maximum value: 65535

DTLS support for IPv6 address

DTLS is supported with IPv6 addresses also. However, to use DTLS with IPv6 addresses the maximum record size must be adjusted in the DTLS profile.

If the default value is used for the maximum record size, the initial DTLS connection might fail. Adjust the maximum record size using a DTLS profile.

DTLS cipher support

By default, a DTLS cipher group is bound when you create a DTLS virtual server or service. DEFAULT_DTLS contains the ciphers that a front-end DTLS entity supports. This group is bound by default when you create a DTLS virtual server. DEFAULT_DTLS_BACKEND contains the ciphers that are supported to a back-end DTLS entity. This group is bound by default to a DTLS back-end service. DTLS_FIPS contains the ciphers that are supported on the Citrix ADC FIPS platform. This group is bound by default to a DTLS virtual server or service created on a FIPS platform.
