How To Upgrade Cipher Security on Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Webserver (Doc ID 1369128.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 06, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure - Version 3.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

To increase the cipher security level used by the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and/or Sun Ray Server Software webservers from their default. Cipher technology improves with time and formerly strong ciphers are now considered weaker than their descendants. 

A comparison of the default ciphers and the new ciphers can be seen in links like these (among others):

  1. Tomcat
  2. JSSE (Java Secure Sockets Extensions)
  3. Apache
