This is a general release for the SV800, SV1800, SV2800, and SV3800. It includes new SNMPv3 access, a new power-off fail-to-wire option, and VLAN translation between ports. Several issues were resolved and several security advisories were addressed.
New Features & Enhancements in SSL Visibility Appliance 3.8.3
Power-off Fail-to-Wire The power-off Fail-to-Wire mode is now configurable. On the Segments > Systems Options panel, Enable Power-off Fail-To-Wire is selected by default; on power-off, traffic is directed from the incoming port to the paired port. When deselected, traffic is redirected into the appliance rather than the paired port. No traffic gets through.
SNMP v3 Management Access The SNMP configuration is now configurable under a new SNMP Access tab in the (Platform Management) menu. SNMP v3 access is now supported.
VLAN Mapping VLAN tags may be translated between ports on the new VLAN Mappings panel on the Segments screen.
New Off-Box Tools New off-box Python SSL Diagnostics and SSL Sessions tools are available.
Updates to the Dashboard provide additional Power Supply status, and more granular disk utilizationinformation.
The new default RSA key size for generating client certificates and keys is 2048-bit. The default RSA keysize for generating a local resigning CA remains 1024-bit.
Each appliance model might have a distinct BIOS and BMC version, which are displayed on the LCD screen.
Blue Coat recommends upgrading all SSL Visibility Appliance models to software version 3.8.3 build 120.
