Important SSL configuration information for users who download this fix pack

The eXtremeIO (XIO) transport uses the entire SSL configuration instead of the previous set of properties for secure communication. Initial versions of the eXtremeIO transport only used a subset of the SSL configuration and would ignore the other property values.

The latest version of the product has been corrected to apply the entire configuration, and subsequently might expose malformed configuration problems that can include errors such as requiring client SSL certificate authentication by mistake, or a certificate alias name that does not actually exist in the SSL key store.

You might experience connectivity failures either on startup or during SSL handshake negotiations after you install this fix pack; for example, if SSL handshakes suddenly fail after the fix pack installation or if the secure process fails to start due to SSLChannel initialization exceptions.

Review the following SSL configuration values from the default objectGridClient.properties file to verify that they are correct:

alias
Certificate name inside configured key store.
contextProvider
Name of the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) provider.
protocol
Encryption protocol name, such as TLSv1.1.
clientAuthentication
Boolean value that determines whether client SSL certificate is required.
clientAuthenticationSupported
Boolean value that determines whether the client SSL certificate is checked when sent.
securityLevel
Values of HIGH, MEDIUM, and LOW, which impact default cipher suites.
enabledCipherSuites
Comma-delimited list of explicit cipher suite names.
