Error description

  • After enabling SSL, 3rd party tools may report the availability
    of a set of ciphers
    when probing a Tivoli Storage Manager's SSL ports.
    Tivoli Storage Manager clients and servers use a set of ciphers
    that are not determinable
    by 3rd party tools, and the set that may
    be shown by 3rd party tools are not the set of ciphers which are
    actually used.
    A change will be made in an upcoming release to show a more
    restricted
    set of ciphers to 3rd party tools.
    
    
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions Affected:
    Tivoli Storage Manager server version 6.3.3.0 and higher
    
    Initial Impact:
    Medium
