    line documentation, go to the product library page at
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en and select the

    ID: #2097
    Problem: Topic, Securing Liberty by using HTTP Strict Transport
    Security (HSTS), describes how to secure Liberty by using the
    HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) - BUT - needs to warn the
    user to first verify that the server has an SSL end point
    defined. without this verification, first, the procedure might
    fail.
    Resolution:  Topic, Securing Liberty by using HTTP Strict
    Transport Security (HSTS), is updated to warn the user to verify
    that the server being secured has an SSL end point defined -
    whether setting a web application context-parameter or a server-
    level web container custom property.

    ID: #3499
    Problem: Topic, CertificateRequestCommands command group of the
    AdminTask object describes the createCertificateRequest command.
    One of the command options to be used is, -certificateValidDays.
    However you get an error using this option.  the doumentation is
    in error.
    Resolution: Topic, CertificateRequestCommands command group of
    the AdminTask object, is updated for the
    createCertificateRequest command.  The -certificateValidDays
    option is not in the code.  As such -certificateValidDays is
    removed from this topic.
    
    This update also applies to V8.5 level of the knowledge center.
