Re: For what we need to use RSA key on the PIX

Hi -

RSA (Rivest,Shamir,and Adelman)Key/Signature is used to generate a secure key for IPSec/VPN Tunnel on a PIX.

You can find out more on RSA technology here:

http://www.rsasecurity.com/

And also an example on a PIX

Hope this helps - Jay

Hi,

a RSA keypair (public/private) is also necessary if you want to use SSH (instead of telnet). The RSA keypair is used to setup the SSH connection in a secure way.

Kind Regards,

Tom
