Abstract

Setting the WebContainer custom propery disablesecuritypreinvokeonfilters causes a security exposure.

Download Description

PK77465 resolves the following problem:

ERROR DESCRIPTION:
Setting the WebContainer custom property disablesecuritypreinvokeonfilters may result in Sign-on not be required for a secure URL. The custom property is required by some customers who use Single Sign-on (SSO) with SPNEGO.


LOCAL FIX:
None.

PROBLEM SUMMARY

USERS AFFECTED:
IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 6.1 and 7.0 Users of Single Sign-on (SSO) with SPNEGO.

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:


RECOMMENDATION:
None

The WebContainer custom property was introduced by PK42868 to prevent a problem in which a SPNEGO TAI was called twice for the same request. However setting the property may result in Sign-on not be required for a secure URL.

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
The WebContainer custom property has been removed and the WebContainer has been updated to ensure that a SPENGO TAI is called once for each request.

The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in Fix Packs 6.1.0.25 and 7.0.0.5. Please refer to the
