APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
The certificate management function within LIC did not support
4096 bit RSA keys and therefore Digital Certificate Manager and
SSL could not use them.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'MA39572' :
-------------------------------
Support for 4096 bit RSA keys is now enabled.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'MA39572' :
----------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions

This LIC PTF requires the associated PTF SI40305 to be applied for DCM
(Digital Certificate Management) to function properly after the LIC
PTFs have been applied to the system.  If you do not use DCM, nothing
further needs to be done.  Otherwise, load and apply the listed PTF.


Default Instructions

THIS IS A DELAYED PTF TO BE APPLIED AT IPL TIME.
