APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using the custom password encryption on WebSphere
    Application Server 8.5.5.18, failures such as
    NullPointerException may occur.
    

Local fix

  • Adding the JVM arguments normally associated with enabling
    custom encryption (and making sure that the class is reachable)
    will work around the issue. This assumes you are using the
    default classname for the custom encryption class.
    
    -Dcom.ibm.ws
    spi.security.crypto.customPasswordEncryptionClass=com.ibm.wsspi.
    security.crypto.CustomPasswordEncryptionImpl
    -Dcom.ibm.wsspi.sec
    urity.crypto.customPasswordEncryptionEnabled=true
