Include special characters (e.g. @) in Parameter Name of Obscure Data - Process Data Values service

Remove the validation of the X520SerialNumber in the PKI-J toolkit
An error occurred when updating a certificate for a client with a Serial number too long issue. Certicom found that certificate is not valid and cannot be used since the X520SerialNumber contains more than 64 characters which violates the RFC.

Recently, we observed one issue with by default local accounts logon logs in Sterling Integrator application. Logs are getting captured when the authentication log is in debug mode. Logs are not getting captured when authentication log is in non-d...
Implicit SSL is making a comeback with some sites due to its immediate application of SSL
Implicit SSL is generally not considered a best practice when setting up FTPS. The preferred alternative is Explicit SSL, which is the current standard for FTPS connections for B2B Integrator. However, some of our customers experience intense busi...
For AS2 Configuration allow using file names when using mailboxes, the same way you can use file names when using file system directories.
Document ID is sending as file name with .txt extension via AS2 Connection. Partner need *.edi file like we have in Message Name. Message Name is *.edi but client is getting file with Document ID++*.txt.
