2020-10 Security Bulletin: Junos OS: MX series/EX9200 Series: 
IPv6 DDoS protection does not work as expected. (CVE-2020-1665)

Article ID  : JSA11062
Last Updated: 14 Oct 2020
Version     : 2.0

Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 17.2, 17.2X75, 17.3, 17.4, 18.2, 18.2X75, 18.3.
Affected platforms: MX series/EX9200 Series.

On Juniper Networks MX Series and EX9200 Series, in a certain condition the
IPv6 Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection might not take affect when
it reaches the threshold condition.

The DDoS protection allows the device to continue to function while it is under
DDoS attack, protecting both the Routing Engine (RE) and the Flexible PIC
Concentrator (FPC) during the DDoS attack.

When this issue occurs, the RE and/or the FPC can become overwhelmed, which
could disrupt network protocol operations and/or interrupt traffic.

This issue does not affect IPv4 DDoS protection.

This issue affects MX Series and EX9200 Series with Trio-based PFEs (Packet
Forwarding Engines).

Please refer to https://kb.juniper.net/KB25385 for the list of Trio-based PFEs.

This issue affects Juniper Networks Junos OS on MX series and EX9200 Series:

  o 17.2 versions prior to 17.2R3-S4;

  o 18.3 versions prior to 18.3R2-S4, 18.3R3-S2.

The DDoS feature is enabled by default, there is no specific config stanza
required to enable DDoS protection, however it can be manually disabled.

To check if DDOS protection is enabled, the administrator can issue the
following command:

user@host> show ddos-protection statistics
DDOS protection global statistics:
Policing on routing engine: Yes
Policing on FPC: Yes
