The HP FlexFabric Switch must not redistribute static routes to alternate gateway service provider into an Exterior Gateway Protocol or Interior Gateway Protocol to the NIPRNet or to other Autonomous System.
If the static routes to the alternate gateway are being redistributed into an Exterior Gateway Protocol or Interior Gateway Protocol to a NIPRNet gateway, this could make traffic on NIPRNet flow to that particular router and not to the Internet Access Point routers. This could not only wreak havoc with traffic flows on NIPRNet, but it could overwhelm the connection from the router to the NIPRNet gateway(s) and also cause traffic destined for outside of NIPRNet to bypass the defenses of the Internet Access Points.
By default the HP FlexFabric switches do not redistribute static routes via External/Internak gateway protocols. If Static routes redistribution has been configure, use the command bellow to disable it. [HP] ospf 1 [HP-ospf-1] undo import-route static
Review the External/internal gateway protocol database on the HP FlexFabric Switch to ensure no static routes are being redistributed via these protocols. If there are static routes being re-distributed, this is a finding.
