Pinned topic Support for TLS renegotiation extension (RFC 5746) within J9VM

‏2010-12-19T14:39:34Z |
As pointed in this page, IBM Platforms:
6 SR7 and later release should contain the fix for the CVE-2009-3555 issue.
However, when I'm running a Tomcat HTTPS server with the JRE6 SR8 FP1, it turns out that the HTTPS server served by the IBM JSSE doesn't support the TLS renegotiation extension. I'm detecting the support for TLS secure renegotiation in Chrome.

Meanwhile, when I'm doing the same test with Oracle JRE version 1.6.0_22-b04, in Chrome it shows that the Tomcat HTTPS server does support the TLS secure renegotiation.
