  • If your Fortanix DSM version is 4.13 or later, then the HSM gateway version must also be 4.13 or later. Similarly, if the HSM Gateway version is 4.13 or later, then your Fortanix DSM version must be 4.13 or later.

1. Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the DCAP peer certificates were not verified correctly (JIRA: PROD-8321).
    Customers who have configured DCAP attestation on their cluster are advised to perform cluster master key (CMK) rotation after applying this patch.
  • Fixed VXLAN spoofing which allowed circumvention of host-based access controls to obtain administrative access on DSM nodes (JIRA: DEVOPS-4607).
    We recommend customers operating clusters without attestation who have untrusted hosts on the same layer 2 network as their DSM hosts perform a CMK rotation after applying the patch.

For a complete list of new features, enhancements to existing features, other improvements, bug fixes, and known issues refer to the full description of the DSM 4.23 release note.
