Obama administration corruption In Solyndra deal confirmed,Personalized Bobbleheads 46

House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R MI) and Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Cliff Stearns (R FL) responded this week to the Department of Treasury Inspector General’s report on the Obama administration’s ill fated $535 million loan guarantee to Solyndra by saying “it was a bad bet from the beginning.

The report, “Consultation on Solyndra Loan Guarantee Was Rushed,” reveals that Department of Energy cut out the Treasury Department officials from issues regarding Solyndra, ignoring the agency’s advice and limiting its opportunity to review the high priced, high risk financing of what critics call “an Obama green pipe dream.”

“The Treasury report echoes what our investigation has shown over and over; Solyndra was a bad bet from the beginning that was rushed out the door while every red flag was ignored. Treasury’s report confirms the agency had been effectively cut out of the loan guarantee process despite federal laws and regulations that require their consultation,Custom bobbleheads 00,” Upton said. Treasury officials involving a risky $535 million infusion for a fly by night solar panel firm were ignored as the deal was fast tracked by the Obama Administration, according to a Washington, DC,Custom bobbleheads, watchdog group. government to promote green energy. Instead, it abruptly folded last fall,bobbleheads 91, stiffing American taxpayers and laying off more than 1,000 workers. From the start,Personalized Bobbleheads, it was a controversial deal that was suspiciously rushed through for a politically connected entrepreneur that had raised large sums for Obama, Judicial Watch reported on it’s web site blog.

This week the Treasury Inspector General report shed light on the scandalous process that, not only ignored warning signs about the startup company’s viability, but also blew off the concerns of officials at the agency responsible for doling out the cash. The “loan,” which will never be repaid, was rushed through by “Obama appointees at the Department of Energy (DOE) without Treasury [Department] input,bobbleheads,” according to the Judicial Watch blog.

That action violated the terms of the program, which was created by the president’s disastrous stimulus. It allows the DOE to make loan guarantees to companies investing in “innovative clean technologies” but specifically requires the Secretary of the Treasury to be consulted on the terms and conditions of the loan guarantee concurrent with its review process. As of December 2011 the DOE guaranteed 28 projects totaling $16.1 billion after consulting with Treasury, the Inspector General’s audit report says.

Evidently this did not occur with the Solyndra deal because it was expedited for a political donor, said the JW blog. In fact, the IG report cites an email written by a Treasury official after a conference call with the DOE brass, presumably to discuss the pros and cons of the huge Solyndra deal. “We pressed certain issuesbut the train really has left the station on this deal.”

Judicial Watch is investigating the Solyndra scandal and has sued the Obama DOE and Office of Management and Budget to obtain records involving the deal.

In September JW submitted Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests seeking records from both agencies, but the DOE says it’s reviewing documents in preparation for public release.

“The Office of Management and Budget has totally blown off the request. This indicates that the administration is on cover up mode,” Judical Watch officials stated.

“At every step of the way, Treasury was clearly an afterthought in Solyndra’s loan guarantee as well as its restructuring that put company investors ahead of taxpayers. What this report and our continuing investigation show is an Obama administration that was either not up to the job, was cavalier in its attitude for following federal laws, or both, said Congressman Upton.

“Treasury’s examination also underscores why the public is so fed up with the Washington bureaucracy according to a review by the independent Treasury watchdog, the Obama administration was more worried about sending out a press release than it was ensuring Solyndra was a wise investment. And now taxpayers are paying half a billion dollars for the sins of Solyndra,” Upton claims.

I have created a simple script that runs dnscheck regularily and sends me an email when dnscheck finds any errors. By doing this I am notified if a zone transfer breaks, DNSSec-signatures gets outdated or any other anomalies in the DNS configuration of my zones.


I have also put together a form which can be used to add monitored zones to the database. Just visit and add your email address and the zone you want to monitor. After verifying your email address my script will monitor the zone(s) you´ve added and send you an email if anything fishy is found by dnscheck.

ASA 9.2 and Heartbleed

Short after the openssl Heartbleed vurnearability was publiced Cisco announced that Cisco ASA was NOT affected by Heartbleed because it runs an older version of OpenSSL.


Today, 2014-04-25, Cisco updated its Feature-list of Cisco ASA software versions with the long awaited v9.2.


But w000t? From now on Cisco ASA runs OpenSSL v1.0.1e (which IS affected by Heartbleed)! What´s happening. Cisco?


Screenshot 2014-04-25 20.06.47



Edit. I posted this and sent the URL to one of my contacts at Cisco. Less than 2 hours later Cisco added a note to the Release Notes:

Screenshot 2014-04-26 17.05.08


So. Cisco did NOT add heartbleed as a new feature in ASA v9.2. My guess is that they upgraded to 1.0.1e in a beta of 9.2 and before got aware of Heartbleed just days before releasing 9.2. And instead of upgrading OpenSSL to 1.0.1g they disabled SSL heartbeat.


So what I found was probably a bug in the documentation. :)

Cisco ASA Anyconnect licensing for dummies, updated!

The picture below should be self-explaining. Click it for a larger version.

Edit 2014: There was some errors in the logics around AEA-licenses. The picture below is now corrected. Please do not use the old version (v1.1).



Let me explain this.


First of all, Advanced Endpoint Assessment (AEA) is a feature where you can do advanced posture checks and remediations with AnyConnect. AEA can check if your antivirus is enabled, and if not enable it, verify if the clients software firewall is installed and enabled and other advanced remediation thingies. I have never used it and if you are not certanly sure you don´t need this license. But if you do you need to continue on the Anyconnect Premium track. No Essentials license for you, my friend.


So. The big question is: Premium licenses or Essentials? The big (simplified) answer is: do you want to use the “clientless” portal? This requires premium licenses and cannot be used if you have “anyconnect essentials” configured (which in turn require the essentials license, see below).

So, let´s say that you need premium licenses. These comes in chunks of concurrent users from 2 to 10, 25, 50 and so on. These are not additative. If you have 2 you can go to the fixed steps of 10, 25, 50 and so on. If you have 25 you can go to 50, 100, 250 et cetera. Each combination of number of license you HAVE and the number of license you WANT have a specific product number. One from 10 to 25, one from 10 to 50, one from 25 to 50 and so on. Messy? Indeed.


The cheaper track is the essentials-licens. You unlock your firewall to unlimited(*) number of concurrent vpn client with one single license. It is cheaper and easier but comes with a few downsides: If you use essentials you cannot do the portal-thingie. And you can not use AEA (which is probably not an issue, see above).

If you wanna use essentials you add the license, AND you do not forget to add the command “webvpn -> anyconnect-essentials” to enable essentials. This command cannot be entered without the license and when essentials is enabled the firewall doesnt care if there are premium licenses installed or not.


On the other hand, if you use premium licenses, you must (except for adding the licenses of course) disable essentials (webvpn -> no anyconnect-essentials). The essentials license (if it exists) will stay there but for no use and good.


So, can it be even more complicated? You bet! No matter what selections you have done above you cannot use anyconnect in your mobile device (iOS, Android). Why? Because Cisco wants to sell “Anyconnect Mobile” licenses. Don´t worry, they are cheap. But you need to add this if you want mobile clients. It is a binary one-timer. You add one mobile-license and you can also use mobile vpn clients.


So, let´s have a look at a few examples:


Example 1: We have an ASA5510 on which we want to connect numerous of anyconnect clients. We don´t care about the portal, but we want to use mobile clients.  We add these licenses:

  • one L-ASA-AC-E-5510=
  • one L-ASA-AC-M-5510=

The 5510 platform can handle 250 concurrent vpn sessions. This means that the licenses above allows us to use 250 concurrent connected vpn-clients, and among them there can be any number of mobile clients. (Dont forget to enable essentials in the config!)


Example 2: An ASA5520 on which we want to use the clientless portal as well as anyconnect clients up to a number of 45 concurrent sessions. We add this license:


  • One L-ASA5500-SSL50


Now we had raised the number of concurrent vpn-sessions from the built-in 2 to 50. Since it is premium licenses any of these 50 sessions can be clientless portal users.


Example 2b: We want to raise the number of concurrent users from 50 to 100. We also want to allow iPhone-devices to connect with AnyConnect. We add these licenses:


  • One L-ASA-SSL-50-100=
  • One L-ASA-AC-M-5520=


Sounds complicated? Only the first 20 times you need to understand the licensing model. And everytime Cisco changes it. Which happens. :-)
