SUPPORT FOR APAR JR36023, GSKIT TLS RENEGOTIATION WEAK SECURITY:

Along with this release, the GSKIT package used for handling SSL secure sessions has a vulnerability update included in the refresh image. If the CS/Windows product is using TN3270 Server with SSL support enabled, then the GSKIT APAR, JR36023, should be applied after the install of CS Windows Fixpack2.


After installing CS/Windows 6.1.3.2 and gskbas-7.0.4.27, you can override the new default by setting appropriate value to the RENEGOTIATION key in the TN3270_PORT_DEF section in the config file.
        
              RENEGOTIATION
takes the value NONE(default),ABBREVIATED, FULL.
             
There are 3 possible functions of the gskit library.
                (a) NONE                  :
No renegotiation permitted
                (b) ABBREVIATED
: Abbreviated renegotiation permitted
                (c) FULL                   
: Full (or abbreviated) renegotiation permitted.
               
The default is NONE.

               
Example:

TN3270_PORT_DEF=(
                                                            PORT=800
                                                            SECURITY=1
                                                            CLIENT_AUTHENTICATION=1
                                                            SECURITY_LEVEL=HIGH
                                                            RENEGOTIATION=NONE
                                                    )


 Communications Server for Windows provides secure encryption and authentication for TN3270 Server clients by using Secure Socket Layer(SSL). The SSL support is provided by the GSKIT common component from IBM (package name gskta). Refer to the document, JR36023_TLS_SSLv3_Update_CS.pdf, provided with the APAR JR36023 package on Fix Central or on the CS/Windows media provided through Fix Central or Passport Advantage. The JR36023 APAR can be found on the Communications Server for Windows product under the brand "WebSphere" on Fix Central at:
