Error description

  • Error Message: Description:  The Server using SSLEngine sends an
    encrypted
    close_notify alert.  If the peer does not respond with its
    close_notify, then a fatal alert of javax.net.ssl.SSLException:
    Inbound closed before receiving peer's close_notify: possible
    truncation attack? is sent.  This causes the SSLSession to be
    invalidated and therefore the SSLSession cannot be resumed.
    .
    Stack Trace: 4488 WebContainer : 5, called closeInbound()

    4490 javax.net.ssl.SSLException: Inbound closed before receiving
    peer's close_notify: possible truncation attack?

    Performance problem due to SSLSessions not being resumed.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • SSLSessions will not be invalidated and will be resumed when
    peer does not send its close_notify.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    6.0.0 SR10
    5.0.0 SR13
    6.0.1 SR1
    .
    Since RFC 2246 is vague regarding whether the initiator of the
    close notify needs to wait for the peer to send its
    close_notify, SSLEngine will ignore if it has not received a
    close notify and will just close the inbound connection without
    throwing an exception.  This will allow SSLSessions to be
    resumed.
    .
    To obtain the fix:
    Install build 20110631 or later
    

Temporary fix
