Managing the Juniper Advanced Threat Prevention Cloud License

This topic describes how to install the Juniper ATP Cloud premium license onto your SRX Series devices and vSRX deployments. You do not need to install the Juniper ATP Cloud free license as these are included your base software. Note that the free license has a limited feature set (see Juniper Advanced Threat Prevention Cloud License Types and File Scanning Limits).

When installing the license key, you must use the license that is specific your device type. For example, the Juniper ATP Cloud premium license available for the SRX Series device cannot be used on vSRX deployments.

Obtaining the Premium License Key

Procedure

The Juniper ATP Cloud premium license can be found on the Juniper Networks product price list. The procedure for obtaining the premium license entitlement is the same as for all other Juniper Network products. The following steps provide an overview.

  1. Contact your local sales office or Juniper Networks partner to place an order for the Juniper ATP Cloud premium license.

    After your order is complete, an authorization code is e-mailed to you. An authorization code is a unique 16-digit alphanumeric used in conjunction with your device serial number to generate a premium license entitlement.

  2. (SRX Series devices only) Use the show chassis hardware CLI command to find the serial number of the SRX Series devices that are to be tied to the Juniper ATP Cloud premium license.
    [edit]
     root@SRX# run show chassis hardware
    Hardware inventory:
    Item             Version  Part number  Serial number     Description
    Chassis                                CM1915AK0326      SRX1500
    Midplane         REV 09   750-058562   ACMH1590          SRX1500
    Pseudo CB 0
    Routing Engine 0          BUILTIN      BUILTIN           SRX Routing Engine
    FPC 0            REV 08   711-053832   ACMG3280          FEB
      PIC 0                   BUILTIN      BUILTIN           12x1G-T-4x1G-SFP-4x10G

    Look for the serial number associated with the chassis item. In the above example, the serial number is CM1915AK0326.

  3. Open a browser window and go to https://license.juniper.net.
  4. Click Login to Generate License Keys and follow the instructions.

    Note You must have a valid Juniper Networks Customer Support Center (CSC) account to log in.

License Management and SRX Series Devices

Unlike other Juniper Networks products, Juniper ATP Cloud does not require you to install a license key onto your SRX Series device. Instead, your entitlement for a specific serial number is automatically transferred to the cloud server when you generate your license key. It may take up to 24 hours for your activation to be updated in the Juniper ATP Cloud cloud server.

Juniper ATP Cloud Premium Evaluation License for vSRX

The 30-day Juniper ATP Cloud countdown premium evaluation license allows you to protect your network from advanced threats with Juniper ATP Cloud. The license allows you to use Juniper ATP Cloud premium features for 30-days without having to install a license key. After the trial license expires, the connection to the Juniper ATP Cloud cloud is broken and you will no longer be able to use any Juniper ATP Cloud features.

Instructions for downloading the trial license are here: https://www.juniper.net/us/en/dm/free-vsrx-trial/.

Note The 30-day trial license period begins on the day you install the evaluation license.

To continue using Juniper ATP Cloud features after the optional 30-day period, you must purchase and install the date-based license; otherwise, the features are disabled.

After installing your trial license, set up your realm and contact information before using Juniper ATP Cloud. For more information, see Registering a Juniper Advanced Threat Prevention Cloud Account.

License Management and vSRX Deployments

Unlike with physical SRX Series devices, you must install Juniper ATP Cloud premium licenses onto your vSRX. Installing the Juniper ATP Cloud license follows the same procedure as with most standard vSRX licenses.

The following instructions describe how to install a license key from the CLI. You can also add a new license key with J-Web (see Managing Licenses for vSRX.)

Note If you are reinstalling a Juniper ATP Cloud license key on your vSRX, you must first remove the existing Juniper ATP Cloud license. For information on removing licenses on the vSRX, see Managing Licenses for vSRX.

Procedure

To install a license key from the CLI:

  1. Use the request system license add command to manually paste the license key in the terminal.
    user@vsrx> request system license add terminal
     
    [Type ^D at a new line to end input, 
     enter blank line between each license key] 
    
    JUNOS123456  aaaaaa bbbbbb cccccc dddddd eeeeee ffffff 
    	   		cccccc bbbbbb dddddd aaaaaa ffffff aaaaaa 
    			   aaaaaa bbbbbb cccccc dddddd eeeeee ffffff 
    	   		cccccc bbbbbb dddddd aaaaaa ffffff
    
    JUNOS123456: successfully added 
    add license complete (no errors)

    Note You can save the license key to a file and upload the file to the vSRX file system through FTP or Secure Copy (SCP), and then use the request system license add file-name command to install the license.

  2. (Optional) Use the show system license command to view details of the licenses.

    Example of a premium license output:

    root@host> show system license 
    
      License identifier: JUNOS123456
      License version: 4
      Software Serial Number: 1234567890
      Customer ID: JuniperTest
      Features:

          date-based, 2016-07-19 17:00:00 PDT - 2016-07-30 17:00:00 PDT
    

    Example of a free license output:

    root@host> show system license 
    
      License identifier: JUNOS123456
      License version: 4
      Software Serial Number: 1234567890
      Customer ID: JuniperTest
      Features:
        Virtual Appliance - Virtual Appliance permanent
    
  3. The license key is installed and activated on your vSRX.

High Availability

Before enrolling your devices with the Juniper ATP Cloud cloud, set up your HA cluster as described in your product documentation. For vSRX deployments, make sure the same license key is used on both cluster nodes. When enrolling your devices, you only need to enroll one node. The Juniper ATP Cloud cloud will recognize this is an HA cluster and will automatically enroll the other node.
