v1.25.56, March 13th 2018

What’s new

  • Feature: Cipher profile support

    • Load balancers with SSL termination are now assigned a cipher profile to control the set of ciphers enabled for secure communication between clients and the load balancer.

    • By default, load balancers are assigned a cipher profile named default which is managed by Rackspace and updated from time to time to disable ciphers that have become insecure. For this reason, use of the default cipher profile is recommended.

    • Other profiles are added and managed by Rackspace. As security concerns change, new cipher profiles may be added. Included with this release is the availability of the CLBCipherPolicy2017-08 cipher profile which currently matches the default profile with the exception of disabling the SSL_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA cipher. Rackspace security experts have determined the aforementioned cipher is still secure for use with Cloud Load Balancers due to maximum lifetime of requests but due to being downgraded from a “high” to “medium” strength cipher will be removed from the default profile in the near future. However, if you would like to disable it now you can leverage this new feature and the CLBCipherPolicy2017-08 profile to have it disabled on your load balancers immediately.

    • You can find the latest list of available cipher profiles and the ciphers they enable in the Ciphers section.

  • Feature: List enabled ciphers

    • For load balancers with SSL termination enabled you can use the API to retrieve the list of ciphers enabled. See List ciphers.

Resolved issues

  • Resolved several API validation and logging issues.

Known issues

None for this release.
