Error description

  • Error Message: A user observed that the SHA256withECDSA,
    SHA384withECDSA, and SHA512withECDSA signature algorithms
    supported by the IBMPKCS11Impl provider could not be referenced
    using either an alias string or an OID value.

Problem summary

  • A user observed that the SHA256withECDSA, SHA384withECDSA, and
    SHA512withECDSA signature algorithms supported by the
    IBMPKCS11Impl provider could not be referenced using either an
    alias string or an OID value.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    6.0.0 SR13
    6.0.1 SR5
    7.0.0 SR4
    .
    Support for the following alias strings were added  to the
    IBMPKCS11Impl security provider for these signature algorithms:
    For "SHA256withECDSA", the following alias strings can be used
    instead:
                    aliases = new String<OSB><CSB> {
                            "SHA2withECDSA",
                            "SHA2/ECDSA",
                            "OID.1.2.840.10045.4.3.2",
                            "1.2.840.10045.4.3.2"
                    };
    For SHA384withECDSA the following aliases can be used:
    
                    aliases = new String<OSB><CSB> {
                            "SHA3withECDSA",
                            "SHA3/ECDSA",
                            "OID.1.2.840.10045.4.3.3",
                            "1.2.840.10045.4.3.3"
                    };
    For SHA512withECDSA the following aliases can be used:
    
                    aliases = new String<OSB><CSB> {
                            "SHA5withECDSA",
                            "SHA5/ECDSA",
                            "OID.1.2.840.10045.4.3.4",
                            "1.2.840.10045.4.3.4"
                    };
