    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Default certificates need to include extension information to
    help
    relieve some errors seen from browsers.  Also users need a way
    to
    provide extension information when creating custom
    certificates.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Default certificates on newly created profiles will contain
    a
    DNS name and Extended key usage setting for server auth and
    client auth.  Users will be able to provide certificate
    extension information on custom certificates.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    9.0.5.5 and WAS 8.5.5.18. For more information, see
