7.216. tomcatjss

An updated tomcatjss package that fixes one bug and adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The tomcatjss package provides a Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) implementation using Java Security Services (JSS) for Tomcat, an open source web server and Java servlet container.

Bug Fix

Previously, the init() function in tomcatjss looked for the clientauth attribute which was not present. As a consequence, Tomcat returned NullPointerException in init() on startup, and in addition, some properties, such as enableOSCP and properties for enabling certain SSL ciphers, were not called. A patch has been applied to fix this problem. As a result, NullPointerException no longer occurs in the described situation, and the mentioned properties are called as expected.


The Tomcat service has been updated to support the Transport Layer Security cryptographic protocol version 1.1 (TLSv1.1) and the Transport Layer Security cryptographic protocol version 1.2 (TLSv1.2) using JSS.
Users of tomcatjss are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug and adds this enhancement.
