Last updated on JULY 26, 2016

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 12.1.0.4.0 to 12.1.0.5.0 [Release 12.1]
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)

Goal

 EM 12c OMS and Agents are secured out-of-box with the SSL parameters listed below
1.OMS and Agents are secured using EM Self-signed certificates with 1024 bit keystrength and SHA256withRSA signature algorithm.
2.WLS servers in OMS are secured using Demo certificates with 512 bit keystrength and MD5withRSA signature algorithm.
3.OMS,Agents and WLS allow communication over SSLv3 and TLSv1 protocols
4.OMS,Agents and WLS support MEDIUM and HIGH strength Cipher Suites.

This document provides steps to harden the SSL configuration for secure communication in EM 12c setup on an AIX platform.
