cSRX Configuration and Management Tools

Understanding the Junos OS CLI and Junos Scripts

The Junos operating system command-line interface (Junos OS CLI) is a Juniper Networks specific command shell that runs on top of a UNIX-based operating system kernel.

Built into Junos OS, Junos script automation is an onboard toolset available on all Junos OS platforms, including routers, switches, and security instances.

You can use the Junos OS CLI and the Junos OS scripts to configure, manage, administer, and troubleshoot the cSRX container.

Understanding cSRX with Contrail and Openstack Orchestration

The cSRX Container Firewall can provide security services in a software-defined networking (SDN) environment. Juniper Networks Contrail is an open, standards-based software-defined networking (SDN) platform that delivers network virtualization and service automation for federated cloud networks. You use the Contrail Cloud Platform with open cloud orchestration systems such as OpenStack or CloudStack to instantiate instances of cSRX in a containerized environment. Contrail Cloud Platform automates the orchestration of compute, storage, and networking resources to create and scale open, intelligent, and reliable OpenStack clouds that seamlessly merge and hybridize through highly intelligent secure networks.

cSRX can be deployed as a dedicated firewall compute node in a Contrail Cloud platform environment to provide differentiated Layer 4 through 7 security services for multiple tenants as part of a service chain in the Contrail cloud platform. In the Contrail networking environment, you can deploy the cSRX container as a large-scale security service in a multicloud environment, and configure the cSRX to steer traffic from a vRouter with vRouter interface (VIF). Traffic and health statistics are monitored by the Contrail service orchestrator.

See cSRX Guide for Contrail for details on using cSRX with Juniper Networks Contrail.
