Notes:
  1. If no specific platform is noted, the CipherSpec is available on all platforms.
  2. Specifies whether the CipherSpec is FIPS-certified on a FIPS-certified platform. See Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) for an explanation of FIPS.
  3. The maximum handshake key size is 512 bits. If either of the certificates exchanged during the SSL handshake has a key size greater than 512 bits, a temporary 512-bit key is generated for use during the handshake.
  4. The handshake key size is 1024 bits.
  5. This CipherSpec was FIPS 140-2 certified before 19 May 2007.
  6. This CipherSpec was FIPS 140-2 certified before 19 May 2007. The name FIPS_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA is historical and reflects the fact that this CipherSpec was previously (but is no longer) FIPS-compliant. This CipherSpec is deprecated and its use is not recommended.
  7. The name FIPS_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA is historical and reflects the fact that this CipherSpec was previously (but is no longer) FIPS-compliant. The use of this CipherSpec is deprecated.
  8. These CipherSpecs are no longer supported by IBM MQ classes for Java™ or IBM MQ classes for JMS. For more information, see SSL/TLS CipherSpecs and CipherSuites in IBM MQ classes for Java or SSL/TLS CipherSpecs and CipherSuites in IBM MQ classes for JMS.
  9. This CipherSpec can be used to transfer up to 32 GB of data before the connection is terminated with error AMQ9288. To avoid this error, either avoid using triple DES, or enable secret key reset when using this CipherSpec.
