Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How to set up Single Sign-On (SSO) for OBIEE 11g (11.1.1.5.0).  You have followed the document:
<Document 1274953.1> OBIEE 11g: Configuring Authentication and SSO with Active Directory and Windows Native Authentication

In the document it is stated that DES encryption needs to be enabled.  But your security policies prevent you from using DES.  As Weblogic 11g 10.3.5 supports JAVA 1.6 and this version of JAVA supports AES encryption, is it possible to use the AES encryption for SSO?
