Use Predefined IPSec Templates to Onboard Service and Remote
Prisma Access includes predefined IPSec templates for common third-party IPSec and SD-WAN devices. These profiles expedite and simplify the onboarding of service connections and remote network connections that use one of these devices to terminate the connection.
Sharing a common template also allows you to Onboard Multiple Remote Network Connections of the Same Type with commonly-shared cryptos, pre-shared keys, and Peer identifiers.
Template Names and Types
Prisma Access provides you with the following predefined templates that you can use to set up IPSec tunnels between your on-premise device and Prisma Access:
Currently, templates for the following vendors are available:
In addition to the following templates, we provide a Generic template that you can use with any on-premise device that is not listed here.
- Cisco appliances:
- Cisco Integrated Services Routers (ISRs)
- Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (ASAs)
- Silver Peak
Use the following workflows to onboard service connections or remote network connections using the predefined IPSec templates.
Onboard a Service Connection or Remote Network Connection
Using Predefined Templates
To onboard a service connection or remote network connection using the templates provided by Prisma Access, complete the following task.
- In Panorama, perform configuration so that the templates display in Panorama.When you upgrade the Cloud Services plugin, the new templates do not automatically display. Complete this step once after upgrading to have the templates permanently display. New installations perform this initial configuration as part of their first-time setup and this extra step is not required.You can also complete this step if you delete these templates and need to retrieve them.
- For service connections, select, click the gear icon in thePanoramaCloud ServicesConfigurationService SetupSettingsarea to open theSettings, then clickOK.
- For remote network connections, select, click the gear icon in thePanoramaCloud ServicesConfigurationRemote NetworksSettingsarea to open theSettings, then clickOK.
- Determine the type of device that is used to terminate the service connection or remote network connection, and find a template to use with that device.If your SD-WAN or IPSec device is not on the list, use the generic profiles.
- Selectand make the following changes to the IKE gateway profile for your device:NetworkNetwork ProfilesIKE GatewaysYou can use the IPSec crypto and IKE crypto profiles with no changes; however, you must make specific changes to the IKE gateway profile to match the network settings.
- (Optional) If you know the public IP address of the on-premise device that will be used to set up the IPSec tunnel with Prisma Access, set a static IP address by specifying aPeer IP Address TypeofIPand enter thePeer Addressfor the IPSec tunnel.
- If using a pre-shared key for the IPSec tunnel, specify aPre-shared Key.
- Specify aPeer Identificationof eitherIP AddressorUser FQDN.Be sure that you match the settings you specify here when you configure the device used to terminate the other side of the IPSec tunnel.
- (Optional) If you need to add a backup tunnel (Secondary WAN) for a service connection or remote connection, perform the following additional configuration steps.Configuring a Secondary WAN is not supported in the following deployments:
- If your secondary WAN is set up in active-active mode with the Primary IPSec tunnel.
- If your customer premises equipment (CPE) is set up in an Equal Cost Multipath (ECMP) configuration with the Primary and Secondary IPSec tunnel.
- Create a new IKE Gateway for the backup tunnel, copying the settings from the predefined template you want to duplicate.The following example creates a backup tunnel configuration for generic networking devices.
- UnderAdvanced Options, specify theIKE Crypto Profilefor the predefined template you want to use.Palo Alto Networks recommends that you use GCM ciphers instead of CBC ciphers for IPSec tunnels.
- Create a new IPSec Tunnel, specifying the new IKE gateway you created, but copying all the other settings from the default template.
- When you onboard the service connection or remote network connection,Enable Secondary WANand specify the tunnel you created for the backup WAN.
- Complete the configuration of the service connection or remote network connection by matching the cryptos, pre-shared key, and Peer identifiers on the device that is used to terminate the other side of the IPSec tunnel.
- (Optional) If you need to onboard multiple remote network connections that use the same types of networking devices,Exportthe configuration of the remote network, edit the settings, thenImportthat configuration.
Onboard Multiple Remote Network Connections of the Same Type
To streamline the process to Onboard and Configure Remote Networks, you can onboard a single remote network connection that uses a networking device that is common to your network deployment, then
Exportthose settings to a Comma Separated Value (CSV) text file. The CSV file includes the values of IPSec tunnel and IKE gateway settings for the network you selected for export. After you export the common configuration settings, you can edit these settings and make them unique for each new remote network you want to onboard, retain the settings that are common to each device, then
For more information, including a description of all editable fields in the CSV table, see Onboard Remote Networks with Configuration Import.
Supported IKE and IPSec Cryptographic Profiles for Common
This section provides you with the supported cryptographic profiles for many common SD-WAN devices. If you are configuring an SD-WAN device, use these profiles as a guideline as to what you can configure for the remote network in Prisma Access.
