Does Symantec Endpoint Encryption contain any proprietary code that is vulnerable to the "BEAST" SSL/TLS issue?
Last Updated March 22, 2012
Symantec does not include any proprietary source code in SEEMS that is vulnerable to the so-called “BEAST” issue. The SEEMS communication infrastructure is based on .NET. Each component, e.g. SQL Server and IIS, may also have its own such infrastructure.
The Windows clients for both SEE-FD and SEE-RS do not include any proprietary source code that is vulnerable to “BEAST”. Both of these clients use .NET for IP-based communication with SEEMS.
The Mac OS X client for SEE-FD includes a third-party library (OpenSSL) that is used for IP-based communication with SEEMS, and this library may be vulnerable to “BEAST”. Symantec is planning a product upgrade in CY 2012 that will resolve this issue.
