Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server Version    *
    *                  8.5.5 and 9.0 Traditional Profile users of  *
    *                  the SSL Channel                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Outbound SSL Engines might not be       *
    *                      created based on the intended proxy     *
    *                      endpoint information                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    For outbound connections, after handling the initial
    handshake, the SSL Channel will create the SSL Engine. If a
    forward proxy is used, the engine might be created using the
    proxy's peer connection information instead of the proxy's
    endpoint connection information. This would lead to a TLS
    error such as:
    [23.08.16 13:27:13:800 CEST] 00000077 SystemOut     O
    WebContainer :
    3, RECV TLSv1 ALERT:  warning, unrecognized_name
    

Problem conclusion

  • The SSL Channel was modified to pass the endpoint information
    when the outbound SSL Engine is created if a custom property
    is set. The custom property to set is
    useProxyEndpointInformation with a value of true/false,
    default of false.
    
    It can be set as JVM custom property on the following panel:
    
    Application Servers > {Server Name} > Process definition >
    Java Virtual Machine > Custom properties
    
    
    For IBM JAX-WS engine:
    Name: com.ibm.ws.websvcs.transport.useProxyEndpointInformation
    Value: true
    
    For IBM JAX-RPC engine:
    
    Name:
    com.ibm.ws.webservices.transport.useProxyEndpointInformation
    Value: true
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.5.5.12 and 9.0.0.3.  Please refer to the
