APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Customer is unable to get 3rd party application updated to
support the TLSv1.2 protocol.  The need exists to make
applications coded to use the default protocol use TLSv1.2 at a
system level to get around the 3rd party.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE62307 :
-----------------------------
TLSv1.2 and TLSv1.1 can be added to the System SSL eligible
default protocol list using System Service Tools (SST) Advanced
Analysis Command SSLCONFIG.

The intersection of the System SSL eligible default protocol
list and the QSSLPCL system value list of enabled protocols
determines the System SSL default protocol list used by
applications.

For applications using the deprecated SSL_ interface, this value
indicates the application is using the system default protocol
list:
SSL_VERSION_CURRENT set on either the SSL_Init_Application() or
SSL_Handshake() API.

For GSKit, when TLSv1.2 is added to the System SSL eligible
default protocol list, TLSv1.2 will be supported for the
application as long as gsk_attribute_set_enum() has not been
called with GSK_PROTOCOL_TLSV1_OFF as the value.

To change the System SSL System SSL eligible default protocol
list with the Start System Service Tools (STRSST) command,
follow these steps:

1. Open a character-based interface.
2. On the command line, type STRSST.
3. Type your service tools user name and password.
4. Select option 1 (Start a service tool).
5. Select option 4 (Display/Alter/Dump).
6. Select option 1 (Display/Alter storage).
7. Select option 2 (Licensed Internal Code (LIC) data).
8. Select option 14 (Advanced analysis).
9. Select option 1 (SSLCONFIG).
10. Enter -h

This will show the help screen that describes the input
strings
to change the System SSL setting for
-eligibleDefaultProtocols.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE62307 :
--------------------------------
Change the application code to request TLSv1.2 explicitly.
