Problem conclusion

  • The functionality of what was added in this APAR has been
    documented in each of the parent APARs.
    
    The following external interface is updated:
    
    com.ibm.websphere.wssecurity.wssapi.token.GenericSecurityTokenFa
    ctory
    
    In GenericSecurityTokenFactory, the following interfaces are
    added:
    
    UsernameToken getSimpleUsernameToken(String username);
    UsernameToken getSimpleUsernameToken(String username, char[]
    password);
    X509Token getSimpleX509PublicToken(X509Certificate certificate);
    X509Token getSimpleX509PrivateToken(X509Certificate
    certificate, Key privateKey) throws WSSException;
    X509Token getSimpleX509Token(X509Certificate certificate, Key
    privateKey);
    BinarySecurityToken getSimpleBinarySecurityToken(Class
    tokenClass, byte[] binary) throws WSSException;
    void putAuthenticatedTokenToSharedState(Map sharedState,
    SecurityToken token);
    
    This APAR does not stand on its own.  In order to obtain the
    function needed to use the tokens provided by these
    interfaces, one or more of the following APARs is required:
    
    PM65435
    PM70805
    PM70831
    PM70885
    PM70894
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.27, 8.0.0.6, and 8.5.0.2.  Please refer to the
    Recommended Updates page for delivery information:
