Download Description

PI54960 resolves the following problem:

ERROR DESCRIPTION:
WebSphere Application Server properties that will be read and then use the value to set java Security algorithm property if not already set in the java.security file.

LOCAL FIX:

PROBLEM SUMMARY

USERS AFFECTED:
All users of IBM WebSphere Application Server

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
The server needs a way to set java.security properties java.tls.disabledAlgorithms and java.certpath.disabledAlgorithms.

RECOMMENDATION:
None

WebSphere Application Server will set java.tls.disabledAlgorithms and
java.certpath.disabledAlgorithms properties programmatically.

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
The application server will set java.tls.disabledAlgorithms and java.certpath.disabledAlgorithms properties by default. If you do not want them to be set then you can set WebSphere Application Server security properties
com.ibm.websphere.tls.disabledAlgorithms and com.ibm.websphere.certpath.disabledAlgorithms to none.


The Application Server can also use customized values for the java security property by setting the security properties
com.ibm.websphere.tls.disabledAlgorithms
and com.ibm.websphere.certpath.disabledAlgorithms to the custom value.


The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
fix pack 7.0.0.41, 8.0.0.13, and 8.5.5.10. Please refer to the
