IBM WebSphere Application Server Traditional and IBM WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile do not support SSLv2. IBM highly recommends against using SSLv2 or SSLv3 in any other hardware or software offerings as these old versions are no longer suitable to be used given the inherited weakness of these protocols.
