We are installing new Linux boxes with version 7 and as a part of hardening the boxes, we have lost connectivity through AccuTerm. It's been identified as the following line in the 'sshd_config' file: 

# Supported MACs | CIS 5.2.11
MACs hmac-sha2-512-etm@openssh.com,hmac-sha2-256-etm@openssh.com,umac-128-etm@openssh.com,hmac-sha2-512,hmac-sha2-256,umac-128@openssh.com

Apparently, AccuTerm is not yet able to handle the encryption schemes for these items. We have done a temporary fix by commenting out the "MACS" line but need to get the permanent fix in before we can use these hardened servers with AccuTerm in production.

Any timeline for delivering the SSH update that's been mentioned in previous posts?

Thanks!

To be clear, which "v7" are you using, and which "Linux" distro and version?

I've been using v7.4a against the latest Linux Ubuntu and CentOS with no issues.

Hi Jeff -

We have a 7.4 release available which includes the newer MAC algorithms, but it is not the default download on the web site, because it requires a new 3-part license key, and AccuTerm Maintenance. Users who inadvertently downloaded this release were unable to use their old 2-part license keys leading to frustration, so 7.4 is an optional upgrade specifically for those needing updated encryption. Please contact Jill to confirm your license key and she can get you the 7.4 download link (jillo at zumasys dot com).
Thanks, Pete

Tony,

Here's our current version info:
Operating System: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
     CPE OS Name: cpe:/o:redhat:enterprise_linux:7.6:GA:server

Our NetOps folks are doing things to 'harden' our servers and this particular item has popped up. Looks like there is a fix available.

Yeah, we're on the same page. I went through a similar effort recently, as discussed in another thread here. The latest AccuTerm does include the latest algorithms, which I've verified as functional, and I believe older insecure ones have been deprecated or removed.
You're in a good place. Good luck!!
