With the advent of later iFixes in 126.96.36.199 and in 6.3.0 moving forward need the ability to control ciphers for web and interop
The ability to manage ciphers for the secured web server/console (default port 58083) and interop connections (same port) was deprecated. Customers often have specific ciphers that must not or must be supported. Leaving a default set of ciphers is not acceptable to Information Security teams. It is important to lock down any port's ciphers to a specific subset. This list changes on a semiannual basis for many customers, often becoming more limited as to what is acceptable from the cipher suites available with Java.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
This would restore the ability to specify a list of acceptable ciphers for the web console and for interoperability purposes. Often these ciphers align. Information Security teams often do not differentiate between interop or web/browser-based interfaces with regard to ciphers, citing instead that everything is interoperable to the application whether it is a human or server contacting it.
