    By default, WebSphere writes current JAAS configuration
    into FFDC file. In case JAAS configuration contains sensitive
    information, it is good to have an option to not to include
    the JAAS configuration in the FFDC file.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This apar will provide an option to not to include JAAS
    configuration information into FFDC file.
    
    When following security custom property is set to false,
    JAAS configuration information will not be written into FFDC
    file.
    
    Property: com.ibm.websphere.security.dumpJaasConfig
    Value   : false (Default value is true)
