APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When running "apachectl -t -DDUMP_SSL_CONFIG" to display the SSL
    cipher confguration, the defaults for a server with zero
    configured ciphers ("SSLCipherSpec") are incorrect.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of IHS on z/OS with SSL enabled       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The default ciphers are listed          *
    *                      incorrectly on z/OS if no ciphers are   *
    *                      specified using the SSLCipherSpec       *
    *                      directive.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Apply this fix if SSL is enabled            *
    ****************************************************************
    In the absence of any SSLCipherSpec directives, the default
    ciphers for TLSv1.2 may display an inaccurate value under the
    "apachectl -t -DDUMP_SSL_CONFIG" command.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The default ciphers should now display correctly.
    
    This fix is targeted for IBM HTTP Server fix packs:
    - 9.0.0.2
    - 8.5.5.12
    - 8.0.0.14
