Error description

  • If the JAX-WS runtime in the Liberty profile sends a message
    with asymmetric digital signature and encryption to the JAX-WS
    runtime in the WebSphere Application Server full profile, a
    CWWSS6001E: Key object was not obtained. error may occur.

    ****************************************************************
    When JAX-WS WS-Security is configured for both asymmetric
    digital signature and encryption of the Body element in the
    SOAP header, a "CWWSS6001E: Key object was not obtained."
    error may occur when consuming the message.
    A stack similar to the following will appear in an ffdc log:
    com.ibm.wsspi.wssecurity.core.SoapSecurityException:
    CWWSS6001E: Key object was not obtained.

    onsumer.java:687)
    ...
    This issue will not occur when the both the sender and
    receiver of the message are the WS-Security runtime in the
    WebSphere Application Server full profile.  It is most likely
    to happen when the Apache CXF runtime is the sender of the
    message.  The Liberty profile in WebSphere Application Server
    8.5.5 uses the Apache CXF runtime.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JAX-WS WS-Security runtime in the WebSphere Application
    Server full profile expects a KeyInfo element in the
    EncryptedData element in the Body only when a message with
    symmetric digital signature and encryption is being processed.
    If a KeyInfo element appears in this location when a message
    with asymmetric digital signature and encrypiton is being
    processed, assumptions are made by the runtime that are not
    true and you can get unexpected results.
    
    The JAX-WS WS-Security runtime in the WebSphere Application
    Server full profile is updated to exit the symmetric digital
    signature and encryption path if asymmetric digital signature
    and encryption are configured.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.31, 8.0.0.7, and 8.5.5.1.  Please refer to the
