I Receive "no Ciphers In Common" In A Stack Trace When Trying To Set The Webgates To Cert Mode (Doc ID 2178373.1)

Last updated on MAY 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 11.1.2.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 11.1.2.2.0 version, Integration w/ other products

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
In the stack trace is an SSL Handshake Exception, and a series of "Ignoring un-supported cipher suite" messages followed by "no cipher suites in common".
This issue just began when trying to secure the communication between OAM and the webgate. When in "Open" mode, it works fine, it's just not secured.
We are just trying to secure the communication between the OAM Managed Server and the Webgate (running in webserver7)
using OAM 11.1.2.2.0 on RHEL 6 Linux and the webgates are version 11.1.2.2.0 for iPlanet (webserver7) In the stack trace is an SSL Handshake Exception, and a series of "Ignoring un-supported cipher suite" messages followed by "no cipher suites in common". I enabled SSL debugging, and it indicates that the cipher settled upon by OAM was "SSL_NULL_WITH _NULL_NULL". Other parts of our install use SSL just fine (to include coherence), but this one is a bit elusive.

java version "1.7.0_101"
