ES EOL PIC (M10i Router)


Software release

  • Junos OS Release 6.0 and later

  • End-of-life (see notification PSN-2010-04-734)


  • High-bandwidth encryption (in accordance with IPSec standards)

  • Power requirement: 0.21 A @ 48 V (10 W)

  • Support for IPSec encryption, decryption, and key calculation acceleration

Note: The ES PIC does not support reassembly and decryption of encrypted packets that were fragmented in an IPSec tunnel.

Hardware features

  • Extends the existing security functionality to Internet traffic at high-performance rates

  • Throughput at 800 Mbps, half duplex

  • 1000 IPSec tunnels or 2000 IPSec security association (SA) pairs

  • Supports MTUs of up to 3900 bytes

Software features

For a list of the software features available for services PICs, see the Junos OS Services Interfaces Library for Routing Devices.

  • Support for IPv4

  • Authentication hash algorithms: MD-5 and SHA-1

  • Encryption algorithms: DES, 3-DES, and Null

  • Automated key management using Diffie-Hellman key establishment

  • Support for preshared key management

  • Authentication Header and Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) independently or in bundle mode

  • Tunnel mode IPSec encryption and decryption for data traffic

  • Transport mode IPSec encryption and decryption for control traffic

  • Static and dynamic security associations (SA) supported

  • SA lifetime configurable in seconds and kilobytes


One tricolor:

  • Off—Not enabled

  • Green—Online with no alarms or failures

  • Yellow—Online with alarms for remote failures

  • Red—Active with a local alarm; router has detected a failure

Instrumentation (counters)

  • Input and output bytes per tunnel

  • Total authentication failures

  • Total antireply failures

  • Total encryption ASIC errors per PIC
