How to Use the Signature Feature on ADX?

Hi, when I type TAB on the 'copy tftp flash' command, I get this:

SSH@test-adx#copy tftp flash 1.2.3.4 adx

  primary         Primary code image

  primary.sig     Primary image's digital signature

  secondary       Secondary code image

  secondary.sig   Secondary image's digital signature

Does anybody know how to use a signature here? Googling did not help... nor the ADX docu....

Hi Alexander,

I am hearing it is not supported until 12.5.01a but let me do some checking for you.  Please stay tuned.

Also, If you could reply back with which version you got the above in, that would be great.

Hi Martin. Thanks for taking care of my question.

We run different ADX versions. 12.4.0g + 12.5.0c + 12.5.1

Sure thing Alexander.  One quick question, did you get that on the CLI for all 3 versions you are running?  Also, it is confirmed, 12.5.01a patch is when it is coming.

Okay, here are some checks:

version          *.sig shown in copy command

12.4.00b        yes

12.4.00g        yes

12.5.00c        yes

12.5.01          yes

so, the I get this on all version that we run

When is 12.5.01a scheduled?

Thank you Alex.

I'm sorry about the delay in getting the release date for the patch.  I am still working on it.

Sorry again about the delay on this but just heard that the 12.5.01a patch is currently scheduled to release in the mid-to-end of September time frame.  Of course this sort of information is subject to change without notice but that is what is expected right now.

Re: How to Use the Signature Feature on ADX?

per our Release Notes the signature file is so far used to authenticate image files for the FIPS certified ADX starting with 12.3.2.

If no FIPS is enabled (+$) the signature file is not used per my understanding.

@Martin,

are there any changes for this with 12.5.01a?

Hi Alexander,

Your understanding is correct.  FIPS would still need to be enabled with the 12.5.01a patch.
