To solve the issue with the Tomcat vulnerability "Ghostcat", Nexus' customers must adapt their configuration. 

A critical Tomcat vulnerability was identified with a CVSS-v3-Score of 9.8 of possible 10. The vulnerability can be used to extract configurations and secrets from the affected servers and allows remote code execution. The blind spot here is the Tomcat AJP port, by default on port 8009, which allows unauthenticated access to all Tomcat files.

  • With PRIME 3.7 we introduce the first standard use cases for Mobile PKI with Nexus Personal Mobile (PM). We have now the possibility to activate a new PM profile via QR-Code and also to enroll certificates to PM. Certificates can be authentication and signing certs but also encryption certificates, including key backup and key recovery. Communication with PM will be done via the PM Backend (called 'Hermod Server'). For requesting certificates, our existing standard PKI connectors (for example, to CM) will be used.
  • With this release, also the Batch Synchronization module is introduced.It provides an easy-to-use user interface in PRIME Designer and an automated execution and status view in PRIME Explorer.
  • With this release, all PRIME system certificates (for example, for field encryption, config signing or history signing) can be stored in a Hardware Security Module (HSM).
