Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 and SoapUI

Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 and SoapUI
Twitter Google+ Facebook LinkedIn Addthis Email Gmail Flipboard Reddit Tumblr WhatsApp StumbleUpon Yammer Evernote Delicious
   

We hit an interesting glitch yesterday, whilst trying to test IBM Business Monitor using the SoapUI tool ( http://www.soapui.org/ ).

Having configured IBM HTTP Server (IHS), in front of Monitor, to only support Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2, via this directive in httpd.conf : -

SSLProtocolDisable SSLv3 SSLv2 TLSv10 TLSv11

we then saw

handshake_failure

when trying to connect to the Business Monitor REST emitter, which is fronted by IHS and the WebSphere Plugin.

Having confirmed that we could happily access the REST URL, via HTTPS, using Firefox, we realised that the issue was with SoapUI.

A few Google searches later, we found this: -


...
The following parameter must be added to the soapUI vmoptions file:

-Dsoapui.https.protocols=TLSv1.2
...

A spot of trial and some error later, we found that this is the file to which the article refers: -

SoapUI-5.0.0.vmoptions

*BUT* that we needed to start the client using the .EXE file: -

SoapUI-5.0.0.exe

rather than the supplied batch file ( which appears to ignore the .vmoptions file ).

Once we made this change, and started the tool, it all worked.

Whilst tinkering with IBM Bluemix, using the underlying Cloud Foundry (CF) and IBM Containers (IC) capabilities, I was looking to update the IC plugin: -cf ic updateYou are using version 0.8.934 of the IBM Containers plug-in.Version 0.8.1028 of the plug-in is available for you to install.Run the "cf ic update" command to update your plug-in to the current version.You can review the documentation to see the changes that are included in the new version.https://www.ng.bluemix.net/docs/containers/

Using Sed and Aw to munge JSON
Sun, Aug 20th 2017 9:32a   Dave Hay
One of my friends had a requirement to pull apart from JSON data, stripping out specific "columns" of data, ideally using standard Unix/Linux commands, again ideally in one single command.This is with what I came up :-)So here's an example of the JSON data: -davehay.json{ "givenName": "Dave", "familyName": "Hay", "eddress": "david_hay@uk.ibm.com" "givenName": "Dave", "familyName": "Hay", "eddress": "david_hay@uk.ibm.com" "givenName": "Dave", "familyName": "Hay"

Java to DB2 via TLS 1.2 - A new one on me
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 7:05p   Dave Hay
So I've been helping a friend debug and resolve a problem whereby his Java 7 code wasn't connecting to a DB2 database via a TLS 1.2 connection.To validate this, I setup a DB2 instance to support TLS 1.2: -As rootecho "db2c_ssl 60007/tcp" >> /etc/servicesAs db2inst1/home/db2inst1/sqllib/gskit/bin/gsk8capicmd_64 -keydb -create -db /home/db2inst1/keystore.kdb -pw passw0rd -stash/home/db2inst1/sqllib/gskit/bin/gsk8capicmd_64 -cert -create -db /home/db2inst1/keystore.kdb -pw passw0rd -label

IBM API Connect - Now a Happy Bunny - Was Notworking, Now Networking
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 3:59p   Dave Hay
As per the past few posts, I've been learning my way around IBM API Connect, and had it nearly working - until about 15 minutes ago when it ALL started working. Without getting too deep into the What and How, the TL;DR; is this …..I have three VMs; the API Manager, the Developer Portal and the DataPower Gateway.As per a previous post: - IBM API Connect - Adding IBM DataPower Gateway into the mix - SOMA import failed I'd moved DataPower onto a different Mac, as it requires 8 GB RAM.I'd sen

IBM API Connect - Webhooks not configured
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 2:27p   Dave Hay
I'm learning my way around IBM API Connect at present, which is giving me a great opportunity to also learn IBM DataPower Gateway, which is nice.Whilst trying to determine why I'm unable to test my APIs on the DataPower Gateway from within the API Manager, I was looking at some of the underlying Developer Portal commands, including: -list_siteswhich returned: -5995c388e4b0d25e2a2ee8f2.5995c388e4b0d25e2a2ee8fe => portal.uk.ibm.com/davehay/sb (INSTALLED) Webhooks not configuredand: -statusSy
