Synopsis

  • Manage OCSP configurations on BIG-IP.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
cache_error_timeout
integer
Specifies the lifetime of an error response in the cache, in seconds.
cache_timeout
string
Specifies the lifetime of the OCSP response in the cache, in seconds.
certificate
string
Specifies a certificate used to sign an OCSP request.
clock_skew
integer
Specifies the tolerable absolute difference in the clocks of the responder and the BIG-IP system, in seconds.
connection_timeout
integer
Specifies the time interval that the BIG-IP system waits for before ending the connection to the OCSP responder, in seconds.
connections_limit
integer
Specifies the maximum number of connections per second allowed for the OCSP certificate validator.
dns_resolver
string
Specifies the internal DNS resolver the BIG-IP system uses to fetch the OCSP response.
This involves specifying one or more DNS servers in the DNS resolver configuration.
Use this option when either there is a DNS server that can do the name-resolution of the OCSP responders or the OCSP responder can be reached on one of BIG-IP system's interfaces.
hash_algorithm
string
    Choices:
  • sha256
  • sha1
Specifies a hash algorithm used to sign an OCSP request.
key
string
Specifies a key used to sign an OCSP request.
name
string / required
Specifies the name of the OCSP certificate validator.
partition
string
Default:
"Common"
Device partition to manage resources on.
passphrase
string
Specifies a passphrase used to sign an OCSP request.
provider
dictionary
added in 1.0.0 of f5networks.f5_modules
A dict object containing connection details.
auth_provider
string
Configures the auth provider for to obtain authentication tokens from the remote device.
This option is really used when working with BIG-IQ devices.
password
string / required
The password for the user account used to connect to the BIG-IP.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_PASSWORD.

aliases: pass, pwd
server
string / required
The BIG-IP host.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_SERVER.
server_port
integer
Default:
443
The BIG-IP server port.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_SERVER_PORT.
timeout
integer
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.
transport
string
    Choices:
  • rest ←
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device.
user
string / required
The username to connect to the BIG-IP with. This user must have administrative privileges on the device.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_USER.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, SSL certificates are not validated. Use this only on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_VALIDATE_CERTS.
proxy_server_pool
string
Specifies the proxy server pool the BIG-IP system uses to fetch the OCSP response.
This involves creating a pool with proxy-servers.
Use this option when either the OCSP responder cannot be reached on any of BIG-IP system's interfaces or one or more servers can proxy an HTTP request to an external server and fetch the response.
responder_url
string
Specifies the absolute URL that overrides the OCSP responder URL obtained from the certificate's AIA extensions. This should be an HTTP-based URL.
route_domain
string
Specifies the route domain for fetching an OCSP response using HTTP forward proxy.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
When present, ensures that the resource exists.
When absent, ensures that the resource does not exist.
status_age
integer
Specifies the maximum allowed lag time that the BIG-IP system accepts for the 'thisUpdate' time in the OCSP response.
strict_responder_checking
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Specifies whether the responder's certificate is checked for an OCSP signing extension.
trusted_responders
string
Specifies the certificates used for validating the OCSP response when the responder's certificate has been omitted from the response.
update_password
string
    Choices:
  • always ←
  • on_create
always will allow to update passwords if the user chooses to do so. on_create will only set the password for newly created OCSP validators.

Notes

Note

  • Requires BIG-IP >= 13.x.

  • For more information on using Ansible to manage F5 Networks devices see https://www.ansible.com/integrations/networks/f5.

  • Requires BIG-IP software version >= 12.

  • The F5 modules only manipulate the running configuration of the F5 product. To ensure that BIG-IP specific configuration persists to disk, be sure to include at least one task that uses the f5networks.f5_modules.bigip_config module to save the running configuration. Refer to the module’s documentation for the correct usage of the module to save your running configuration.

Examples

- name: Create a OCSP validator

    proxy_server_pool: validators-pool
    provider:
      password: secret
      server: lb.mydomain.com
      user: admin
