Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The retrieveSignerFromPort command      *
    *                      does not honor the value of Cipher      *
    *                      Suites setting.                         *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Even though the value of the Cipher Suites setting in the SSL
    configuration has been modified, the retrieveSignerFromPort
    command does not honor the value when this command makes an
    outbound SSL connection. As a result, there is a potential
    that SSL connection is made using an unwanted cipher algorithm.
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this fix, retrieveSignerFromPort task uses the
    configured Cipher Suites setting.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.39, 8.0.0.12, 8.5.5.7.  Please refer to the
