List of Available SSL/TLS Cipher Suites and how to Specify them with SSL_CIPHER_SUITES = () (Doc ID 2194424.1)

Last updated on APRIL 26, 2018

Applies to:

Advanced Networking Option - Version 11.2.0.4 to 12.1.0.2 [Release 11.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

To highlight cipher suite availability with different Oracle RDBMS versions and patches.

Scope

UTL_HTTP

During SSL/TLS handshake a UTL_HTTP client will send the full list of ciphers that it supports to the target. The Cipher suites offered by UTL_HTTP are not user configurable.

Client/Server SSL/TLS connectivity

When not explicitly specified a connecting client will offer the complete set of cipher_suites it has available in that Oracle version. To control which combination of encryption and data integrity values may be used cipher suites can be restricted using the sqlnet.ora and listener.ora parameter: SSL_CIPHER_SUITES = ()

 

"MES bundle" refers to the RSA BSAFE Micro Edition Suite upgrade in 11.2.0.4. The MES bundle offers additional ciphers and stronger protocol support.

MES bundle patches:

MES BUNDLE (22695784) ON TOP OF RDBMS 11.2.0.4.160119DBPSU
MES BUNDLE (24975421) ON TOP OF RDBMS 11.2.0.4.161018DBPSU
