Configuring Checksum Hashes for an SNMP Script

 

You can configure one or more checksum hashes that can be used to verify the integrity of an SNMP script before the script runs on the switch, router, or security device.

To configure a checksum hash:

  1. Create the script.
  2. Place the script in the /var/db/scripts/snmp directory on the device.
  3. Run the script through one or more hash functions to calculate hash values.

    Starting in Junos OS Release 18.2R2 and 18.3R1, Junos OS supports only the SHA-256 hash function for configuring script checksum hashes. Earlier releases support the MD5, SHA-1, and SHA-256 hash functions.

  4. Configure the script with one or more hash values.

    During the execution of the script, Junos OS recalculates the checksum value using the configured hash algorithm and verifies that the calculated value matches the configured value. If the values differ, the execution of the script fails. When you configure multiple checksum values with different hash algorithms, all the configured values must match the calculated values; otherwise, the script execution fails.
