- Category: Version update
Parallel to the Check Point CPX in Nice, Tufin has released version 16-1 GA. Until now, the first HF is available, too.
Please find some information about changes in this version below.
This version includes some improvements, e.g.:
- New Cloud Features for AWS, e.g. automated Connectivity Modeling for AWS Applications, policy based analysis of connections, connection discovery of applications and much more
- New Cloud Features for NSX, e.g. NSX Application Map
Changes regarding SecureTrack:
Support of Palo Alto rule tags, security profiles and log profiles
- Fortinet NAT:
Support vo VIP, IP Pool and Destination Interface NAT as far as the Gateway is managed by FortiManager
- Check Point:
Full Support of Check Point R77.30 Management
Support of ASA 9.5
- Upgrade of HTTPD and JMS Server from TLSv1 to TLSv1.2
- Improvements regarding the Unified Security Policy (USP). Further requirements can be added now, e.g. Logging required, no ANY as Source, Destination, Service, etc.
- In Rule Base Optimization now a rule can be marked as "legacy". If SecureChange would recommend a change to this rule, it's ignored and a new rule will be defined. This is for optmization of "old and complex" rule bases.
- Improvements of the REST API, esp. regarding Authorization and Compare of rule bases.
Changes regarding SecureChange:
- The Designer has been improved, esp. when there are more than one Access Request in a ticket.
- Visual presentation of rules in the Designer
- The REST API now offers options for "Modify Group", exclusion of Devices and more. Please find an extended online documetation of the REST API in SecureChange now.
- Import of Access Requests is now possible for "Comment" and "Action" also
Changes regarding SecureApp:
- Introduction of a Connectivity Map for a graphical view of all connections affecting an application, regardless of involved devices.
- Improved support of AWS applications
- Improvements of the REST API, esp. for AWS
Further improvements and corrections are included.

- Category: SecureTrack
When connecting a Check Point Security Management Server to SecureTrack, there are two possibilities to gather the topology:
Check Point Security Management Server only
In this case, Secure Internal Communication is set up to have a secure connection between the SecureTrack Server and the Check Point Management.
The Topology for SecureTrack is read from the Interface information defined in the Check Point Firewall and Cluster, respectively. Anti-Spoofing information is also read to get as much information as possible about the Topology.
Check Point OS Monitoring
In this case, the Topology is read from the monitored devices directly using SNMP. Other information isn't gathered - information from the object defined in the Security Mangagement Server is ignored.
If Check Point OS monitoring is activated and the SecureTrack Server has no possibility to read information using SNMP (161/udp), no information about the Topology is imported and therefore this device isn't shown in the SecureTrack Topology. Allowing SNMPv3 between the SecureTrack Server and the firewall device helps to avoit this potential problem.
- Category: SecureChange
If there is a distributed installation with a SecureTrack Server and a SecureChange Server, communication is needed between these two servers.
Necessary communication: HTTPS (443/tcp) in both directions.
SecureChange Server needs information from SecureTrack, e.g. about Topology and Rule Bases of the firewalls. The SecureChange Designer needs also the opposite direction connecting from the SecureTrack Server to the SecureChange Server. If this doesn't work, the designer will result in an error.
To configure the SecureTrack Server in SecureChange, go to Menu > Settings > SecureTrack
To configure the name of the SecureChange Server used e.g. in E-Mails, select Menu > Settings > Miscellaneous
The name or IP address listed here represents the SecureChange Server and will also be used for the communication between SecureTrack and SecureChange. If a wrong name or IP address is configured here, SecureTrack won't be able to communicate with SecureChange since only this name/address will be contacted from SecureTrack.
For sure, the name needs to be resolvable for users too, since they will find this name in their E-Mail regarding e.g. a new task.

Please update your TufinOS
Google Security has found a vulnerability in glibc, a commonly used library:
A remote attacker could create a specially crafted DNS response which could cause libresolv to crash or, potentially, execute code with the permissions of the user running the library.

- TufinOS 1.x isn't vulnerable
- TufinOS 2.x is vulnerablle
Tufin has published a patch for TufinOS 2.10:
