Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users of IBM HTTP Server's SSLVersion       *
    *                  directive                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Dynamic 403 ErrorDocument can't         *
    *                      produce an SSL-specific message         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Apply this fix if using IBM HTTP Server     *
    *                  with the SSLVersion directive               *
    ****************************************************************
    A dynamic 403 ErrorDocument was unable to produce a
    SSL-specific message without knowing of a SSL version check
    failure by the SSLVersion directive.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was updated so that when 'SSLVersion' returns a 403
    error, a new 'ssl-version-check-failed' internal environment
    variable is also set. A dynamic 403 ErrorDocument can use this
    environment variable to produce an SSL-specific message.
    
    This fix is targeted for IBM HTTP Server fix packs:
    - 7.0.0.45
    - 8.0.0.15
    - 8.5.5.14
    - 9.0.0.7
