Guidelines for Configuring Subscriber Secure Policy Mirroring

The subscriber secure policy service uses the radius-flow-tap service infrastructure. Consider the following guidelines when you configure subscriber secure policy mirroring:

When configuring subscriber secure policy mirroring, consider the following guidelines regarding the relationship between the radius-flow-tap service and the FlowTapLite service on MX Series tunnel interfaces (FlowTapLite):

  • Starting in Junos OS Release 17.3R1, the radius-flow-tap service can run concurrently on the same router with the FlowTapLite service. The FlowTapLite service is a version of the flow-tap service ([edit services flow-tap]) that is configured only on tunnel interfaces on MX Series routers and is not used for subscriber secure policy mirroring.

    In earlier releases, the radius-flow-tap and FlowTapLite services cannot run concurrently on an MX Series router, preventing you from running FlowTapLite monitoring and subscriber secure policy mirroring at the same time.

  • You can configure one instance of the radius-flow-tap service on the router. Subscriber secure policy RADIUS-initiated mirroring and Dynamic Tasking Control Protocol (DTCP)-initiated mirroring both use the radius-flow-tap service.

  • If you delete the radius-flow-tap service, new subscribers are not monitored. Existing subscribers that already have subscriber secure policy attached are not affected when you delete the service configuration.

  • You can retain DTCP-initiated mirroring but prevent RADIUS-initiated mirroring from being enabled by including the [edit system services dtcp-only] statement, if you do so before any RADIUS-initiated mirroring is attached to a subscriber. Subsequently, RADIUS requests to initiate mirroring are rejected; only DTCP-initiated mirroring and FlowTapLite are allowed. Existing RADIUS-initiated mirroring services are not affected.

  • Starting in Junos OS Release 16.1R1, you must configure the target parameters for mediation devices so that the SNMPv3 traps are sent with privacy (encrypted). Targets without privacy configured cannot receive the notifications. In earlier releases, you can configure target parameters without privacy, allowing unencrypted notifications to be sent to the mediation devices. You must also explicitly configure a list of trap targets with the [edit services radius-flow-tap snmp notify-targets] statement.
