If there is a need to know the cipher used by CLM applications or RTC and the level of encryption used for web-clients, this blog should be of some help.
Cipher refers to the algorithm used for performing encryption and decryption of the data.
Generally, SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is used for data encryption, decryption and transmission using certificates or smart cards. However, this also depends on the kind of Application server being used. Based on the kind of application server in use, the respective product documentation should have the details on the cipher used.
Websphere Application Server, Apache Tomcat
a. For Internet Explorer, login to RTC and then right click on the web-page --> Properties;
b. For Firefox web-browser, if one hovers and clicks on the padlock symbol prior to URI in the address bar, say before https: //ho
So, if the RTC/CLM installation is based on Websphere Application Server (v7.0), the site supports a minimum cipher strength of 168 bit encryption. This, can be confirmed by looking into the properties for ccm application web-page and the application server documentation.
By default, using the Apache Tomcat application server the site supports a minimum cipher strenght of 128 bit encr
The cipher indicates that the data is encrypted between the Internet browser and the Server. It doesn’t encrypt the data on the database itself.
This is what is behind the HTTPS protocol and is managed by the Application server. RTC is only an application installed on top of Jazz, which is installed on WebSphere.
Here is the link for the WebSphere v 7.0 documentation - About "TLS 1.0, 3DES with 168 bit encryption (High)". This explains SSL Version 3 and TLS Version 1.0 cipher specifications: http

Application Lifecycle Management, also known as ALM, is not a new phrase in software development, but perhaps one with which you are still not entirely familiar. ALM can help improve lifecycle collaboration and software development efficiency. How, you may be asking? Why through diligent application of the five imperatives for ALM, of course!
CM Crossroads has just published an article featuring our Collaborative Lifecycle Management Solution, titled "Five Imperatives of ALM", written by our very own Carolyn Pampino!
Not only does the article detail the benefits of ALM in general, but it also demonstrates how IBM Rational has raised the bar for ALM solutions by articulating five imperatives backed by proof points showing how our integrated product offerings meet those imperatives.
So go on, check out Carolyn's content rich article on CM Crossroads... we hope you enjoy it as much as we have! You can find the article here:
And don't forget to check out our other C/ALM content on the Jazz.net library where we will also publish a .pdf version of Carolyn's Five Imperatives soon! Just point your browser to: http

While using IBM WAS as an application server, there might be a need to understand certain artifacts here.
This helps in understanding the internal behavior and identifying the components in IBM WAS.
When you use the Administrative console to configure IBM WebSphere, certain XML files are updated internally. Here are the details:

How do you know when you're really ready to release? Answering this question requires ALM visibility spanning project management, requirements, coding, build and testing artifacts. In this demo, we show how the Rational solution provides the end-to-end visibility agile teams need to succeed with ALM. The demo starts with a development plan that shows the relationship among plan items, requirements and test cases. We see how adding a new plan item to the release backlog drives a choreographed set of team activities for project managers, analysts, developers and quality professionals.
Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager, and Rational Requirements Composer were demoed using the 3.0 Beta 2 versions.

Many of you (our CLM and Insight clients) have requested this information and we are now pleased to announce the CLM jazz.net Information Center contains great detailed information about the Reporting Data Dictionaries data model, thanks to great collaborative efforts between our clients, support, development, and information developers! So, today we can announce that we've published the first iteration of these documentation improvements at:
Here's a quick excerpt to really whet your appetite....
