      Summary
      =======
      
      Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) authentication on a device
      that is running certain versions of Cisco Internetworking Operating System
      (IOS) and configured with a fallback method to none can be bypassed.
      
      Systems that are configured for other authentication methods or that are not
      configured with a fallback method to none are not affected.
      
      Only the systems that are running certain versions of Cisco IOS  are affected.
      Not all configurations using RADIUS and none are vulnerable to this issue. Some
      configurations using RADIUS, none and an additional method are not affected.
      
      Cisco has made free software available to address this vulnerability. There are
      workarounds available to mitigate the effects of the vulnerability.
      
      The vulnerabilities are documented as the following Cisco Bug IDs:
      
        * CSCee45312 -- Radius authentication bypass when configured with a none
          fallback method
      
      This advisory will be posted at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20050629-aaa.shtml.
      
      Affected Products
      =================
      
      Vulnerable Products
      
      Systems that are running the following release trains of Cisco IOS are affected
      if configured with RADIUS authentication and a none fallback method.
      
        * 12.2T based trains
        * 12.3 based trains
        * 12.3T based trains
        * 12.4 based trains
      
      A system configured for RADIUS authentication and none fallback method will
      have a command line in show running-configuration output which is similar to
      the following .
      
          aaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius none (This is an affected configuration)
      
      
          aaa authentication ppp xxxxxx group radius none (This is an affected configuration)
      
      
      A system that is configured for RADIUS authentication with local and none
      fallback methods is also affected. An example to this configuration may look
      like similar to the following.
      
          aaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius local none (This is an affected configuration)
      
      
          aaa authentication ppp xxxxxx group radius local none (This is an affected configuration)
      
      
      A system is only vulnerable if none method is used as a fallback to RADIUS
      without any other method in between, or if only local method is used in
      between. Systems that are configured for RADIUS authentication with a fallback
      method other than local prior to none method are not affected.
      
      Refer to the Details section for more information about affected and unaffected
      configurations.
      
      Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable
      
        * Products that are not running Cisco IOS are not affected.
        * Products running Cisco IOS versions 12.1 and earlier (including 12.0S) and
          12.2 mainline are not affected.
        * Products that are running Cisco IOS are not affected unless they are
          configured for RADIUS authentication with a fallback method to none.
      
      No other Cisco products are currently known to be affected by this
      vulnerability.
      
      Details
      =======
      
      Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) network security services
      provide the primary framework through which access control is set up on a
      device.
      
      AAA authentication services are used to control access to different services on
      a system. Multiple AAA authentication services can be configured on a system to
      fall back to a backup authentication method in case the primary authentication
      method is unavailable.
      
      AAA authentication can be used for different purposes (controlling access to
      the routers, authenticating remote subscribers etc.).
      
      Refer to the following URL for more information on AAA: http://www.cisco.com/
      univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios122/122cgcr/fsecur_c/fsaaa/index.htm
      
      Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) is defined in RFC2865 and
      describes a protocol for carrying authentication, authorization, and
      configuration information.
      
      There is a vulnerability in AAA RADIUS authentication if none is used as a
      fallback method. Sending a sufficiently long username will bypass the RADIUS
      authentication and succeed.
      
      Following algorithm can be used to determine whether a configuration is
      vulnerable:
      
      1. Are you using an affected version of IOS?
      
      No: You are not vulnerable.
      
      Yes: Go to step 2.
      
      2. Is AAA RADIUS Authentication used?
      
      No: You are not vulnerable.
      
      Yes: Go to step 3.
      
      3. Is none used as an alternative to RADIUS?
      
      No: You are not vulnerable.
      
      Yes: Go to step 4.
      
      4. Is there any other method between RADIUS and none?
      
      No: You are vulnerable.
      
      Yes: Go to step 5.
      
      5. Is the other authentication method local?
      
      No: You are not vulnerable.
      
      Yes: Go to step 4.
      
      Based on the algorithm above sample affected and unaffected configurations are
      given below.
      
          aaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius none (This is an affected configuration)
      
      
          aaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius local none (This is an affected configuration)
      
      
          aaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius group tacacs+ none (This is an unaffected configuration)
      
      
          aaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius enable none (This is an unaffected configuration)
      
      
          aaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius line none (This is an unaffected configuration)
      
      
          aaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius local line none (This is an unaffected configuration)
      
      
      Removing the none fallback method or putting at least one additional method
      other than local between RADIUS and none will mitigate this vulnerability.
      
      Impact
      ======
      
      Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may result in bypassing the RADIUS
      authentication.
      
      Software Versions and Fixes
      ===========================
      
      When considering software upgrades, please also consult http://www.cisco.com/en
      /US/products/products_security_advisories_listing.html and any subsequent
      advisories to determine exposure and a complete upgrade solution.
      
      In all cases, customers should exercise caution to be certain the devices to be
      upgraded contain sufficient memory and that current hardware and software
      configurations will continue to be supported properly by the new release. If
      the information is not clear, contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center
      ("TAC") for assistance.
      
      Each row of the Cisco IOS software table (below) describes a release train and
      the platforms or products for which it is intended. If a given release train is
      vulnerable, then the earliest possible releases that contain the fix (the
      "First Fixed Release") and the anticipated date of availability for each are
      listed in the "Rebuild" and "Maintenance" columns. A device running a release
      in the given train that is earlier than the release in a specific column (less
      than the First Fixed Release) is known to be vulnerable. The release should be
      upgraded at least to the indicated release or a later version (greater than or
      equal to the First Fixed Release label).
      
      For further information on the terms "Rebuild" and "Maintenance, " please
      consult the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/620/1.html

      Obtaining Fixed Software
      ========================
      
      Customers with Service Contracts
      
      Customers with contracts should obtain upgraded software through their regular
      update channels. For most customers, this means that upgrades should be
      obtained through the Software Center on Cisco's worldwide website at http://
      www.cisco.com.
      
      Customers using Third-party Support Organizations
      
      Customers whose Cisco products are provided or maintained through prior or
      existing agreement with third-party support organizations such as Cisco
      Partners, authorized resellers, or service providers should contact that
      support organization for assistance with the upgrade, which should be free of
      charge.
      
      Customers without Service Contracts
      
      Customers who purchase direct from Cisco but who do not hold a Cisco service
      contract and customers who purchase through third-party vendors but are
      unsuccessful at obtaining fixed software through their point of sale should get
      their upgrades by contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC). TAC
      contacts are as follows.
      
        * +1 800 553 2447 (toll free from within North America)
        * +1 408 526 7209 (toll call from anywhere in the world)
        * e-mail: tac at cisco dot com
      
      Please have your product serial number available and give the URL of this
      notice as evidence of your entitlement to a free upgrade. Free upgrades for
      non-contract customers must be requested through the TAC.
      
      Please do not contact either "psirt at cisco dot com" or "security-alert at cisco dot com"
      for software upgrades.
      
      Customers may only install and expect support for the feature sets they have
      purchased. By installing, downloading, accessing or otherwise using such
      software upgrades, customers agree to be bound by the terms of Cisco's software
      license terms found at http://www.cisco.com/public/sw-license-agreement.html,
      or as otherwise set forth at Cisco.com Downloads at http://www.cisco.com/public
      /sw-center/sw-usingswc.shtml.
      
      Workarounds
      ===========
      
      The effectiveness of any workaround is dependent on specific customer
      situations such as product mix, network topology, traffic behavior, and
      organizational mission. Due to the variety of affected products and releases,
      customers should consult with their service provider or support organization to
      ensure any applied workaround is the most appropriate for use in the intended
      network before it is deployed.
      
        * Removing none as a fallback to RADIUS or putting an additional method other
          than local between RADIUS and none will mitigate this vulnerability.
          For example, an affected system which has a configuration similar to the
          following aaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius none can be changed
          to one of the followingaaa authentication login xxxxxx group radius aaa
          authentication login xxxxxx group radius enable aaa authentication login
          xxxxxx group radius enable none aaa authentication login xxxxxx group
          radius line none as a workaround.
      
          warning Warning: Removing none as a fallback method may create problems if
          the RADIUS server becomes unavailable. With a none fallback in place, all
          authentication requests will succeed when the RADIUS server is unavailable.
          Removing none fallback method or replacing it with enable or another
          mechanism may result in authentication failure if RADIUS server becomes
          unavailable.
