    ****************************************************************
    WebSphere was not properly reading a PKCS7 certificate file with
    receiving a certificate from a Certificate Authority.  With the
    com.ibm.websphere.security.ReceiveCertificate security custom
    property set to true a certificate can be re-received from a
    Certificate Authority.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code modify to properly read a PKCS7 certificate file from a
    Certificate Authority.  When the security custom property
    com.ibm.websphere.security.ReceiveCertificate is set to true use
    will be to allowed to re-receive a certificate from a Certificat
    Authority (CA).
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.19 and 9.0.5.7. For more information, see 'Recommended
