Introduction

The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published a recommendation on stronger cryptographic algorithms and key lengths (http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-131A/sp800-131A.pdf) in light of advancement in computing power and availability of security tools. With the timeline suggested in the recommendation, PKI vendors have been recommending that customers upgrade their private keys and certificates that comply with NIST recommendations, particularly 2048-bit key, SHA-2 signed certificates.

Impact on WebLogic Server Customers

There are three primary use cases that have dependency on cryptographic algorithms for data protection or data integrity. They are SSL/TLS, message security, and credential data.
