Summary: 

The node secret in affected products was stored using an encryption key and encryption algorithm that is no longer 
considered effective by RSA standards. An attacker could potentially exploit this to eavesdrop on or modify network 
communications.
 

Details: 

The node secret is a symmetric encryption key that RSA® Authentication Manager, RSA Authentication Agents, and RSA® 
Access Manager use to protect network communications. In affected products, the node secret is encrypted and stored on 
the agent host using a dated encryption algorithm and weak key.

All agent software which leverages the RSA SecurID Authentication API has been updated to use stronger encryption and 
stronger keys.

Note: All agent software, whether shipped by RSA or one of its RSA Secured Partners, which leverage the RADIUS Protocol 
is NOT affected by this issue.

 

Recommendation:

Following is the recommendation for action to be taken to obtain this security fix:

 

RSA Authentication Agent for Microsoft Windows 6.1.3

Recommendation: Please upgrade to RSA Authentication Agent for Microsoft Windows 6.1.4

 

RSA Authentication Agent for Microsoft Windows 6.4.2 and 7.0

Recommendation: Please upgrade to RSA Authentication Agent for Microsoft Windows 7.1.

 

RSA SecurID Authentication Agent 5.3 for Web for Apache Web Server

Recommendation: Please upgrade to RSA Authentication Agent 7.1 for Internet Information Services.

Note: RSA Authentication Agent 5.3.5 for Internet Information Services is available via Solution a61488 on SecurCare 
Online.

 

RSA SecurID Agent 6.0 for PAM
