Release Notice: LoadMaster LMOS 7.2.48.8 LTS

Release Notice: LoadMaster LMOS 7.2.48.8 LTS

Release Date: 29 November 2022

 

Update Image Verification:

By default, verification of the digital signature on upgrade images is required in LMOS 7.2.50 and above. See the Update Verification Options setting under System Administration > Miscellaneous Options > WUI Settings. If the unit you are upgrading is set to require validation, you'll need to supply the XML Verification File supplied with this release.

Note that:

  • In previous releases, two verification files were provided: one for pre-7.2.51 systems and one for later systems. This restriction has been removed with this release; use the same XML file regardless of the LMOS version from which you are upgrading.
  • LoadMasters running an LMOS version prior to 7.2.49 do not provide the option of XML file verification in the UI or API. If you are upgrading from one of these releases to this release, you can verify the digital signatures offline using a manual process documented on the support website.

If you are currently running LMOS 7.1.x or an earlier version, please see the article Kemp LoadMaster Firmware Upgrade Path for full upgrade path information.

 

Issues Resolved:

This is a minor update to the LoadMaster LTS (Long Term Support) release that addresses two issues:

  • The FIPS cipher set that is available in normal (i.e., non-FIPS) operating mode has been modified to remove three weak ciphers.
  • In response to recent changes to US Government standards for FIPS-140-2 certifications, 19 ciphers have been removed from the certified LoadMaster FIPS product.
