Use Predefined IPSec Templates to Onboard Service and Remote Network Connections

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:
  • IPSec Tunnels (
    Network
    IPSec Tunnels
    ) under Remote_Network_Template and Service_Conn_Template.
  • IKE Gateways (
    Network
    Network Profiles
    IKE Gateways
    ) under Remote_Network_Template and Service_Conn_Template.
  • IPSec Crypto Profiles (
    Network
    Network Profiles
    IPSec Crypto
    ) under Remote_Network_Template and Service_Conn_Template.
  • IKE Crypto Profiles (
    Network
    Network Profiles
    IKE Crypto
    ) under Remote_Network_Template and Service_Conn_Template.
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)
  • Citrix
  • CloudGenix
  • Riverbed
  • 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.
  1. 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
      Panorama
      Cloud Services
      Configuration
      Service Setup
      , click the gear icon in the
      Settings
      area to open the
      Settings
      , then click
      OK
      .
    • For remote network connections, select
      Panorama
      Cloud Services
      Configuration
      Remote Networks
      , click the gear icon in the
      Settings
      area to open the
      Settings
      , then click
      OK
      .
  2. Select
    Network
    , then select the correct
    Template
    (either
    Remote_Network_Template
    if you are creating a remote network connection or
    Service_Conn_Template
    if you are creating a service connection).
  3. 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.
  4. Select
    Network
    Network Profiles
    IKE Gateways
    and make the following changes to the IKE gateway profile for your device:
    You 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 a
      Peer IP Address Type
      of
      IP
      and enter the
      Peer Address
      for the IPSec tunnel.
    • If using a pre-shared key for the IPSec tunnel, specify a
      Pre-shared Key
      .
    • Specify a
      Peer Identification
      of either
      IP Address
      or
      User 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.

  5. Onboard the service connection or remote network connection, specifying the
    IPSec tunnel
    configuration that matches the device on the other side of the IPSec tunnel.
  6. (
    Optional
    ) If you need to add a backup tunnel (Secondary WAN) for a service connection or remote connection, perform the following additional configuration steps.
    1. 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.

    2. Under
      Advanced Options
      , specify the
      IKE Crypto Profile
      for the predefined template you want to use.

    3. Create a new IPSec Tunnel, specifying the new IKE gateway you created, but copying all the other settings from the default template.

    4. When you onboard the service connection or remote network connection,
      Enable Secondary WAN
      and specify the tunnel you created for the backup WAN.

  7. 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.
  8. (
    Optional
    ) If you need to onboard multiple remote network connections that use the same types of networking devices,
    Export
    the configuration of the remote network, edit the settings, then
    Import
    that configuration.

Onboard Multiple Remote Network Connections of the Same Type

To streamline the process to Configure Prisma Access for Networks, you can onboard a single remote network connection that uses a networking device that is common to your network deployment, then
Export
those 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
Import
that configuration.
For more information, including a description of all editable fields in the CSV table, see Onboard Remote Networks with Configuration Import.
