Support for TLS communication in FlexNet Publisher?
SummaryIs there support for TLS communication in FlexNet Publisher?
QuestionDoes FlexNet Publisher support TLS communication (the successor to SSL?) If so, what versions does it support (1.0, 1.1, and 1.2?)
If it is supported, is there any difference in this regard between FNP versions 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168?
AnswerFrom FNP 11.14.0 onwards, we are supporting all versions of TLS protocol and disabling SSLv2 and SSLv3 by default.
To override default behavior and enable SSLv2 or SSLv3:
Add the below line in webServer tag of server.xml.
Ex:1 (It will enable SSLv3 and SSLv2 protocols only)
sslProtocol="+SSLv3 +SSLv2 "
Ex:2 (It will enable SSLv3 and SSLv2 protocols and disable TLSv1)
sslProtocol="+SSLv3 +SSLv2 -TLSv1"
Additional InformationWe are supporting the TLS protocol in FNP 22.214.171.124 as well, but the difference is that we have not disabled the SSLv3 protocol in that version. We have disabled the SSLv3 protocol with FNP 11.13.1 onwards. This is for both lmadmin and FNP Transactions against back office (FlexNet Operations).
