This suggests that the problem is the "HMAC verification has failed" and that no action needs to be taken unless the error becomes more frequent.
Well, we are starting to see these errors every half an hour or so on the affected routers.
It goes on to say that it could be caused by a defect in the crypto accelerator but doesn't say a) how to determine if that is the case and b) how to fix it!
So, my questions are, what could be causing this issue and how can I resolve it? What impact is this likely to be having and do I need to be overly concerned? (I'm not aware of the users at these sites having any issues which could be related to this - as yet anyway!)
Re: Issue with HMAC Verification failures on Cisco 877 routers
no, I'm afraid we never managed to find the source of this problem. We tried upgrading the IOS to 12.4(11)T1 and this stopped the previous error message but instead we started seeing error messages like:
"%CRYPTO-4-RECVD_PKT_MAC_ERR: decrypt: mac verify failed for connection"
Since there were no complaints about performance and we could find no evidence to suggest any hostile activity, we have just been "living with it" for the time being.
However, it would be nice to resolve this problem once and for all as clearly something is not right so if anyone has any ideas please let us know!
We have configured the outside and inside Interface with official ipv6 adresses, set a default route on outside Interface to our router, we also have definied a rule , which also gets hits, to permit tcp from inside Interface to any6.
In Syslog I also se...
