R80.20 SecureXL drop template support

Hi,I was reading the "Performance Tuning Administration Guide R80.20" and pass by something that made me think about some upgrades that i will need to do on the next's months to R80.20 and push them forward until this is supported, at least on 2 of them that have a good amount of traffic droped by the SXL.The drop template feature on SXL still not supported. Does anyone know when it will be supported? mid 2019?Regards

Check Point Clustering between two Datacenters

Dear Mates We are currently experiencing routing assymetry on our infrastructure, and we are trying to find possible solutions that could help us solve the problem.I would like to know whether there is a limitation in terms of creating a Check Point cluster over two geographically separeted Datacenters (Few Kilometers away from each other). Is there any distance constraints? If there is no a distance constraint, since the current version of GAIA we are using (R80.20) does not support Load-sharing, we do not intend to have 4 appliances in a cluster while only one is taking all the traffic.Can Maestro be used in order to take advantage of the 4 appliances?The rationale for this question is because we are thinking of turning the 4 Check Point Appliances into a single cluster. Thanks in Advance

R80.20 - IP blacklist in SecureXL

Controls the IP blacklist in SecureXL. The blacklist blocks all traffic to and from the specified IP addresses. The blacklist drops occur in SecureXL, which is more efficient than an Access Control Policy to drop the packets. This can be very helpful e.g. with DoS attacks to block an IP on SecureXL level. For example, the traffic from and to IP should be blocked at SecureXL level. On gateway set the IP to Secure XL blacklist: # fwaccel dos blacklist -a On gateway displays all IP's on the SecureXL blacklist: # fwaccel dos blacklist -s On gateway delete the IP from Secure XL blacklist: # fwaccel dos blacklist -d Very nice new function in R80.20! Furthermore there are also the Penalty Box whitelist in SecureXL. The SecureXL Penalty Box is a mechanism that performs an early drop of packets that arrive from suspected sources. The purpose of this feature is to allow the Security Gateway to cope better under high traffic load, possibly caused by a DoS/DDoS attack. The SecureXL Penalty Box detects clients that sends packets, which the Access Control Policy drops, and clients that violate the IPS protections. If the SecureXL Penalty Box detect a specific client frequently, it puts that client in a penalty box. From that point, SecureXL drops all packets that arrive from the blocked source IP address. The Penalty Box whitelist in SecureXL lets you configure the source IP addresses, which the SecureXL Penalty Box never blocks.

Yes, this is this time of year, again. Same as one year ago, we turn to the community and ask you, good folks, to propose the idea of the year. Or, better: The Idea Of The Year! The rules are the same as before, it is about ideas that you wish Check Point would develop into a product/service offering, or improvements to existing ones. Do you think we miss something important or we should consider to expand our product portfolio, feature set, functionalities, get to a completely new playground, change the rules of the game? Tell us NOW! A few disclaimers/notes: There are no guarantees that any idea suggested will be developed, even the "Idea Of The Year", From the suggestions below, we will choose 3-5 ideas which will be put up for voting later on, Preference will be given to ideas that come from customers and partners, though employees are welcome to participate as well.

R80.10 - Remote Access VPN - Endpoint Security Diffie-Hellman Support

Info:Security Manager / Gateway Environment R80.10Endpoint Security VPN Client: E80.97 Hi,I won't pretend to know the cryptographic intricacies of all the differences between the numerous Diffie-Hellman groups; my question / concern is based on best practice while providing a balance between security and usability. I've spent the last few hours trying to find content relating to why I can't use Diffie-Hellman Group 19/20 with my Remote Access VPN clients...using Endpoint Security E80.9x. Within global properties on my SMS I can set some pretty respectable Encryption / Integrity algorithms. However, the "best" offering regarding Diffie-Hellman Groups is 14 (2048bits). I would like to know why I am unable to use Diffie-Hellman Groups 19/20 as this is really the minimum standard for IPSec as far as I can tell...happy to be corrected if this understanding is wrong?I'm beginning to suspect this is a client limitation. I have checked the database with the guiDB tool and can see groups 19 and 20 are defined. Some clarification and /or direction to the relevant resource would be much appreciated. Thanks,Jon

CPUSE will fail to install new Jumbo on restored gateway

Just run into a interesting scenario with CPUSE failing to install take 203 on very last gateway (nearly 40 updated without any issues). Won't be creating TAC case out of pure laziness and too much to do as is DA agent version is 1677, so all good there and gateway had take 154 installed before attempt to upgrade to 203. What turned out was that this particular box was recently fully re-built from factory image due to SSD failure (second SSD dying on 5900 appliances! not good trend there). So we went R77.30 > R80.10 > take 154 > backup restore. All went great and box was running like a charm. But now when I attempted to install take 203 it failed at very early stage with following error: Digging into more detailed logs I found that CPUSE was looking for an older file that was not there (/opt/CPInstLog/install_cpfc_wrapper_HOTFIX_R80_10_JUMBO_HF.log) So I compared the deployment agent backup directory contents on both cluster members. /opt/CPda/backup/ This was restored node and this was the secondary that was in it's "original" state Ok - bunch of archives missing.. Then it clicked - when we restored the box from backup, we did not install all jumbo HFs that were installed over time originally but went straight to the latest take 154 that was running on the node when backup was taken. So quick action was simply to copy all missing archives from "original" node /opt/CPda/backup to restored one and then take 203 installation succeeded. It might be a known issue, but there's a definitely room for improvement for CPUSE in case you use backup for restore instead of snapshot

botnet activity detection

Hello dear, The checkpoint firewall detected botnet activity on one of our DNS servers, and another on a computer network. To my knowledge the firewall is supposed to block such activity? How to get rid of this infection, I launched the ESET ENDPOINT Security antivirus but nothing found.

Captive Portal and HTTPS

Hi, I created a rule to redirect the traffic destined to http e https ports from a specific network segment to the captive portal (identity awareness blade). The rule was created using an Acess Role as source (the access role was configured only with the specific network segment). The redirect to the captive portal works perfectly when the user access a HTTP (clear-text) site, but when the users access an HTTPS (encrypted) site, the redirect does not work (browser tries to connect until timeout). Is there any way to the redirect to the captive portal works with HTTPS sites? PS: The HTTPS Inspection is enabled for all traffic originated from the specific network segment mentioned above.

Manage users with Centrify

Is anyone using Centrify to manage their Gaia deployments? We are going to have a POC with Centrify later this month for our servers, databases, etc., and I'm sure there will be a push to also manage the firewalls. I have only started reading about Centrify and Gaia, but it sounds like there are a lot of "gotchas", and not so much benefit. The Centrify deployment would be managed outside of security team, I'm not very fond of giving up control over gateways to another system/group that is not in the security team.
