**Notes:**

* **Temporary Mitigation**: These attacks require network access to execute.

As a general best practice it is recommended that all administrative access

be restricted to trusted user networks exclusively. This applies to the

Policy Manager Admin Web Interface and SSH consoles. This is best

accomplished through a comprehensive network security policy that restricts

administrative access to ClearPass administration interfaces.

* Restricting access to the Policy Manager Admin Web Interface can be

accomplished by navigating to `Administration >> Server Manager >> Server

Configuration >> <Server-Name> >> Network >> Restrict Access`and only

allowing non-public or network management networks.

**Note:** Please contact HPE Aruba Technical Support if any assistance is

needed.
