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.

Apple Watch - go, no go, go
Mon, Oct 16th 2017 3:29p   Dave Hay
So I had a weird experience last evening, and not in a good way.For no apparent reason, this was my Apple Watch: -and this: -I have no earthly idea what happened.So, being a true nerd, and a big fan of The IT Crowd, I decided to ( all together now ) TURN IT OFF AND ON AGAIN ….Obviously I couldn't read the display, what with it being all garbled n' all, so I just hit the big button on the right-hand side, below the digital crown and chose the appropriate gibberish - it was the one in red, so

IBM Cloud Private - My first foray
Mon, Oct 16th 2017 10:37a   Dave Hay
So this week, along with many other things, I'm starting to get to grips with the newly announced IBM Cloud Private: - IBM brings the power of cloud behind the enterprise firewall I'm running on Ubuntu Linux: - lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available.

Ubuntu - Software Updater and the Insufficient Disk Space

Jenkins to Git - SSH says "No"
Fri, Oct 13th 2017 10:28a   Dave Hay
As per my earlier post: -Learning Times - Or Git being a bit of a GitI'm on a voyage of discovery with Jenkins and Git.Whilst trying to plumb onto into t'other, I was hitting a blocker.To recap, I have Jenkins installed on my MacBook, running locally, and I have Git running on a Docker container on a remote Mac.Therefore, I'm connecting to the remote Git repository using SSH rather than, say, HTTPS or a local file-system.This works OK for me using Git commands such as: -git clone ssh://git@19

I'm on a bit of a voyage of discovery this week, having previously been tinkering with Elasticsearch and Kibana a few days back: -Further stories of a tinkerer - this time it's IBM BPM, Apache Kibana and ElasticsearchNow I'm playing with Jenkins and Git, the latter of which is running on Docker, with the intention of automating the push of Java code to WebSphere Liberty Profile, also running in Docker.I also intend to get to grips with Maven at the same time, what's not to like ?Anyway, back

IBM HTTP Server - Checking Personal Certificates
Wed, Oct 11th 2017 3:54p   Dave Hay
Whilst on the subject of IBM HTTP Server (IHS), as per an earlier post: -IBM HTTP Server - Tinkering with CMS Keystore PasswordsI was "auditing" the SSL certificate that I'm using for IHS, specifically the signature algorithm.So I have a single certificate in the key store: -/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/gskcapicmd -cert -list -db /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/APIC/ssl/keystore.kdb -pw passw0rdCertificates found* default, - personal, ! trusted, # secret key*- wlpn.uk.ibm.comwhich I validated as follows: -/op

IBM HTTP Server - Tinkering with CMS Keystore Passwords
Wed, Oct 11th 2017 2:56p   Dave Hay
Last week, I was demonstrating to a client how one can change the password on a Certificate Management System (CMS) using the IBM Global Security Toolkit (GSK).Therefore, I'd changed the password from my default ( passw0rd ) to something else ( f00bar ).To make it 100% clear, this is a sacrificial TEST VM, hence the weak password.Alas muscle memory makes me type the old the password each and every time ( yes, I can/do use the stashed password when I remember ).This is how I check what password
