Enabling TLS-Only on WebLogic

This section discusses:

Configuring TLS-Only on WebLogic Server

The weblogic.security.SSL.protocolVersion command-line argument lets you specify which protocol is used for SSL connections.

To enable TLS-only on WebLogic Server:

  1. Open PIA_HOME/webserv/<Domain>/bin/setEnv.cmd (Windows) or setEnv.sh (UNIX) in edit mode.

  2. Append the following option to the JAVA_OPTIONS variable:

    -Dweblogic.security.SSL.protocolVersion=TLS1

    For example, on Windows in the setEnv.cmd, the updated JAVA_OPTIONS_WIN would appear as:

    SET JAVA_OPTIONS_WIN=-jrockit -XnoOpt -XXnoJITInline -Xms512m -Xmx512m
    -Dtoplink.xml.platform=oracle.toplink.platform.xml.jaxp.JAXPPlatform
    -Dweblogic.security.SSL.protocolVersion=TLS1
  3. Save the change.

  4. Restart PeopleSoft Internet Architecture.

For more information about Supporting TLS1 protocol, refer to Oracle WebLogic documentation for specifying the version of SSL to be used.

See Specifying the Version of the SSL Protocol.
