Network devices running an unsupported operating system lack current security fixes required to mitigate the risks associated with recent vulnerabilities. The recommended best practice is for the organization to implement a patch management process for Junos OS. The process should involve testing and verification of the authenticity of vendor-provided updated. These files are then placed into a repository which is protected by access, confidentiality, and integrity control. System administrators can then initiate firmware/software updates by pointing the device to this repository. There is no need for the device to perform additional certificate verification.
