Understanding Remote Access for Junos OS in FIPS Mode

 

When the router or switch is in Junos OS in FIPS mode, only SSH is available as a remote access service. To secure the information sent on administrative connections, use SSHv2 for CLI configuration. For SSH configuration information, see the Junos OS System Basics Configuration Guide.

Best Practice

For FIPS compliance, configure the router or switch over SSH connections because they are encrypted connections.

The Ethernet management (MGMT) port on the router or switch is disabled by default. To use the MGMT port, you must enable the fxp0 interface and assign it an IP address if you have not already done so. For more information, see the Junos OS System Basics Configuration Guide.
