Description

X509 certificate verification was not correctly implemented in the early access "user id" feature in the F5 BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager versions 13.0.0, 12.1.0-12.1.2, and 11.6.0-11.6.2, and thus did not properly validate the remote server's identity on certain versions of BIG-IP.
