Description

In some circumstances, an authentication keychain may remain in the JUNOS kernel even after it has been removed from the router's configuration. This can occur if there are TCP sessions using the keychain which cannot be immediately terminated because of outstanding retransmissions. This requires JUNOS to retain the old keychain data within the kernel until all TCP sessions using that keychain have terminated.
