Using Websphere MQ Suite Adapter in NIST 800-131a compliance mode

The WebSphere MQ Suite adapter is a set of services used to send and receive messages to WebSphereMQ. When used in the GPM, only the NIST 800-131a compliant Cipher, key certificates, and CA certificates are available for selection.

The WebSphere MQ adapter communicates with WebSphere MQ to send and receive messages. Only compliant ciphers are supported in NIST 800-131a strict mode.

In strict mode, the following ciphers are supported:


If a non-NIST 800-131a compliant Cipher, key certificate, or CA certificate are configured, the business process will fail and you must re-configure the adapter with a NIST 800-131a compliant Cipher or certificate.
