APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A potential weakness in the android operating system has
    recently been addressed by Google.
    Traveler has taken steps to leverage this code change and harden
    its security posture further.
    All fresh installs of traveler will utilize this additional
    security measure.
    For existing traveler devices that require the highest security
    possible we recommend uninstalling the app from the device and
    reinstalling the latest app with this APAR fix, or from the play
    store
    

Local fix

  • n/a
    

Problem summary

  • Android OS bug could result in predictable encryption key
    generation.  This key was only used by Notes Traveler 9.0.0.x
    clients.  Other client versions were not effected.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Notes Traveler client has been updated to work around this
    issue in the Android OS.  Simple re-install of the client on the
    Android device using the newer level will resolve the issue.
    

Temporary fix

  • This fix is included in Notes Traveler 9.0.0.1 IF2 and will be
    included in all future releases.  In addition an updated
    Android client can be obtained from the Google play store
