JSSE in Ports


I got below text from IS Admin guide.

If this port should support TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2, click
Yes to create the port using the Java Secure Socket
Extension (JSSE) socket factory. The default is Yes.
If you set this value to No, the port supports only SSL
3.0 and TLS 1.0.
Note: This field is available only if you selected HTTPS in the
Protocol field.

Does above text mean that secure port doesn’t support SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 when JSSE flag is set to Yes???

Thanks in advance.

Hi Ramesh,

JSSE should support all protocol versions from SSL v3.0 thru TLS v1.2.
TLS v1.1 and TLS v1.2 are only available in JSSE mode on JVM 7 and newer.

Anyway, SSL v3.0 should be disabled by the appropriate watt-settings.
Check for the POODLE advisory in the Empower Knowledgebase.
If neccessary apply the fixes in the mentioned advisory.
