Secure Mode

Secure mode only works in SSH. As per this mode, only strong ciphers and Message Authentication Codes (MACs) are allowed in SSH server and SSH client connections. After enabling secure-mode:
  • For communication, SSH server uses a new secure-mode list made each for ciphers and MACs.
  • For the SSH client, EPM is notified to change the bit dedicated to SSH secure-mode, which hides the weak ciphers and MACs from SSH client CLI commands.


Only SSH is uses this mode.
