Arguments

name

Name for the SSL profile. Must begin with an ASCII alphanumeric or underscore (_) character, and must contain only ASCII alphanumeric, underscore, hash (#), period (.), space, colon (:), at (@), equals (=), and hyphen (-) characters. Cannot be changed after the profile is created.

sslProfileType

Type of profile. Front end profiles apply to the entity that receives requests from a client. Backend profiles apply to the entity that sends client requests to a server.

Possible values: BackEnd, FrontEnd

Default value: FrontEnd

dhCount

Number of interactions, between the client and the NetScaler appliance, after which the DH private-public pair is regenerated. A value of zero (0) specifies infinite use (no refresh).

This parameter is not applicable when configuring a backend profile.

Minimum value: 0

Maximum value: 65534

dh

State of Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange.

This parameter is not applicable when configuring a backend profile.

Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED

Default value: DISABLED

dhFile

The file name and path for the DH parameter.

eRSA

State of Ephemeral RSA (eRSA) key exchange. Ephemeral RSA allows clients that support only export ciphers to communicate with the secure server even if the server certificate does not support export clients. The ephemeral RSA key is automatically generated when you bind an export cipher to an SSL or TCP-based SSL virtual server or service. When you remove the export cipher, the eRSA key is not deleted. It is reused at a later date when another export cipher is bound to an SSL or TCP-based SSL virtual server or service. The eRSA key is deleted when the appliance restarts.

This parameter is not applicable when configuring a backend profile.

Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED

Default value: ENABLED

eRSACount

The refresh count for the re-generation of RSA public-key and private-key pair.

Minimum value: 0

Maximum value: 65534

sessReuse

State of session reuse. Establishing the initial handshake requires CPU-intensive public key encryption operations. With the ENABLED setting, session key exchange is avoided for session resumption requests received from the client.

Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED

Default value: ENABLED

sessTimeout

The Session timeout value in seconds.

Minimum value: 0

Maximum value: 4294967294

cipherRedirect

State of Cipher Redirect. If this parameter is set to ENABLED, you can configure an SSL virtual server or service to display meaningful error messages if the SSL handshake fails because of a cipher mismatch between the virtual server or service and the client.

This parameter is not applicable when configuring a backend profile.

Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED

Default value: DISABLED

cipherURL

The redirect URL to be used with the Cipher Redirect feature.

clientAuth

State of client authentication. In service-based SSL offload, the service terminates the SSL handshake if the SSL client does not provide a valid certificate.

This parameter is not applicable when configuring a backend profile.

Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED

Default value: DISABLED

clientCert

The rule for client certificate requirement in client authentication.

Possible values: Mandatory, Optional

dhKeyExpSizeLimit

This option enables the use of NIST recommended (NIST Special Publication 800-56A) bit size for private-key size. For example, for DH params of size 2048bit, the private-key size recommended is 224bits. This is rounded-up to 256bits.

Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED

Default value: DISABLED

sslRedirect

State of HTTPS redirects for the SSL service.

For an SSL session, if the client browser receives a redirect message, the browser tries to connect to the new location. However, the secure SSL session breaks if the object has moved from a secure site (https://) to an unsecure site (http://). Typically, a warning message appears on the screen, prompting the user to continue or disconnect.

If SSL Redirect is ENABLED, the redirect message is automatically converted from http:// to https:// and the SSL session does not break.

This parameter is not applicable when configuring a backend profile.

Possible values: ENABLED, DISABLED

Default value: DISABLED
