Disable Master Secret Handling

This article relates to LoadMaster firmware version 7.2.52.

In LoadMaster firmware version 7.2.52, a new check box was added to System Configuration > Miscellaneous Options > Network Options called Disable Master Secret Handling. By default, the LoadMaster processes the Master Secret SSL Extension (as defined in RFC7627). This can cause problems for some legacy clients so it is now possible to optionally disable this functionality by selecting the Disable Master Secret Handling check box.

Application Programming Interface (API) Details

To enable or disable the SSLDisableMasterSecret parameter, run the set command:
