Blue Cedar 3.22.2 Release Notes

Blue Cedar Enterprise includes:

  • Blue Cedar Policy Console, which injects security into mobile apps, providing fine-grained controls and configurable usage policies.
  • Blue Cedar Gateway, which uniquely terminates secure in-app microtunnel connections from Blue Cedar-secured apps to backend services, providing seamless authentication, identity integration, and trust services between any Blue Cedar-secured app and trusted corporate networks.

Blue Cedar Enterprise is available as a full cloud-hosted solution as well as an on-premises deployment.

What's new in Blue Cedar 3.22.2

These release notes cover Blue Cedar Enterprise and Enforce release 3.22.2. See Resolved Issues below.

What's new in Blue Cedar 3.22.1

Red Hat/CentOS installation

Blue Cedar on premises policy console supports rpm files for installing on a RedHat/CentOS system. See Installing the policy console (RPM).

What's new in Blue Cedar 3.22.0

iOS 12 support

Blue Cedar includes support for the new Apple iOS 12 release. Customers must upgrade to 3.22+ for iOS 12 support. Apps that previously worked on iOS 11 are expected to work without any issues. Apps that target new APIs for iOS 12 may have issues.

Blue Cedar 3.22.0 does not support the new Network.framework. 

Apps (with certain APIs) secured with the Data Sharing policy's preferred apps option may have issues.

Android P support

Blue Cedar includes support for the new Android P release. Apps running on Android P integrated with older versions of Blue Cedar security can crash on startup. Customers must upgrade to 3.22.0+ for Android P support.

IKEv2

Blue Cedar Enforce 3.22.0 now includes test candidate support for IKEv2 via the Secure Microtunnel policy. The Enforce 3.22 Policy Console provides a limited set of options for Secure Microtunnel, including PSK/EAP authentication modes for IKEv2. The Secure Web Stack policy is also available in Enforce 3.22.

Other Secure Microtunnel options are only available in Blue Cedar Enterprise, which does not support IKEv2.

Supported versions of Blue Cedar Enterprise and Blue Cedar Enforce 

Blue Cedar supports the current and previous major versions. Customers using versions prior to 3.21.x and 3.22.x should upgrade at their earliest convenience. Customers experiencing issues should upgrade to the latest versions of Policy Console and Gateway, in order to eliminate iOS/Android compatibility issues and issues that have already been resolved. On-premises versions of Policy Console are now Docker-based, residing on a customer-provided Ubuntu server. Blue Cedar Customer Support is available to schedule a time to assist with upgrades.  

Resolved issues

Blue Cedar has tested specific items that have been addressed in this release, but cannot test all customer apps for full functionality. Please re-secure and test your apps at your earliest convenience before moving to production (i.e., distributing to your end users).
