security.OverrideAsnCompliancePolicy=true needs to be added into the file

per IBM - There is a technote that indicates security.OverrideAsnCompliancePolicy=true be added to the customer_overrides specifically to ignore OID errors caused by certificates with attributes not supported by the Certicom jar files which SI uses for signature verification. This option only enables Sterling Integrator to read additional OID Fields in the certificates which were not supported by the default Certicom libraries.

Additionally – it would have no affect on AS2 communication for those which are currently functioning.


I was seeing this with random AS2 errors on windows, but could show up on any installation.

- with errors such as: Failure unpackaging message Error - class: 5; subclass: 1; code: -1; reporting function:

The IBM technotes indicate the client add security.OverrideAsnCompliancePolicy=true to customer_overrides.

However, there is no documentation on this. OverrideAsnCompliancePolicy does not exist in the file. Nor any other property file.

The client therefore gets confused currently, as well as later as to why this is present.

What is your industry? Other
How will this idea be used?

The simplest thing here is that this property value should be documented and placed into the and files.

That will ensure the client can find it later when performing updates.

It can also allow additional clients to find it, who may be facing this issue, who don't know there is a possible solution.
