WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit Version 8.0 Fix Pack 7



This is Fix Pack 7 for WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit Version 8.0.

Download Description

SSLv3 is disabled by default in WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit Version 8.0 Fix Pack 6 and later, because SSLv3 is no longer considered secure due to the POODLE vulnerability. The following IBM security bulletin, published in October 2014, gives further details:

All users must update any configuration using SSLv3 to use TLS, by following these steps:

1. Update all secure MQ queue manager connections to use TLS instead of SSLv3 cipher specs. The following IBM security bulletin gives further details on the required MQ mitigations:

2. Update Java code to use TLS instead of SSLv3. The following IBM security bulletin gives further details about the usage and recommended mitigations for Java:

It is strongly recommended that these changes are made to avoid the known security vulnerability in SSLv3. However, if it is not possible to use TLS communication, you can re-enable SSLv3 by following these steps:

1. Edit the eclipse.ini file for the toolkit installation and add the following line:

The eclipse.ini file is in the root directory of the toolkit installation. For example:
c:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\WMBT800\eclipse.ini

2. Edit the file for the toolkit installation and remove SSLv3 from the list of disabled algorithms:

The file is in the jre lib\security directory of the toolkit installation. For example:
c:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\WMBT800\jdk\jre\lib\security\
