HPSBNS03625 rev.1 - HPE NonStop Application Server for Java (NSASJ) running
SSL/TLS, Remote Disclosure of Information
NOTICE: The information in this Security Bulletin should be acted upon as
soon as possible.
Release Date: 2016-06-15
Last Updated: 2016-06-15
Potential Security Impact: Remote Disclosure of Information
Source: Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Product Security Response Team
NonStop Application Server for Java (NSASJ) has addressed the cross-protocol
Attack on TLS using SSLv2 also known as "DROWN". This vulnerability could be
exploited remotely resulting in disclosure of information.
Note: NSASJ configurations that have enabled SSL/TLS are vulnerable if
SSLv2 is enabled or they share private keys with systems that have it
SUPPORTED SOFTWARE VERSIONS*: ONLY impacted versions are listed.

HPE has released the following information to resolve the vulnerability in
NonStop Application Server for Java (NSASJ).
To avoid the DROWN vulnerability, the SSLv2 protocol in NSASJ must explicitly
The security protocol support in NSASJ is applied through security Realm
settings or through connectors that expose the interface. Disable the SSLv2
protocol either in the connector configuration or the security domain
configuration as shown below.
**Secure Connector HTTPS and TLS/SSL**
- To enable TLS/SSL support for a particular instance of a connector, the
secure attribute must be set to true. TLS/SSL support is enabled in the
default NSASJ HTTPS connector configuration.
- Perform the following steps to complete the TLS/SSL setup:
1. Create a certificate keystore:
$JAVA_HOME/bin/keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA
- -keystore /path/to/my/keystore
Enter a password when prompted.
2. Add a SSL tag in the connector configuration.
If the protocol attribute is not specified, SSLv2 is supported by
default. To disable SSLv2, specify the protocol attribute and do not include
The following is a sample configuration that enables only TLSv1.2:
<connector name="https" protocol="HTTP/1.1" scheme="https" socket
<ssl key-alias="tomcat" protocol="TLSv1.2" password="XXXX"
Due to protocol weaknesses, HPE also recommends to disable SSLv3 and
TLSv1.0 by excluding them from the protocol list.
**Applying security restrictions through Security Domains and Realms**
- Restricting access to all containers and management interfaces of NSASJ
can be done by configuring security domains in appropriate Realms configured
in domain.xml and host.xml files.
- Each Realm has a server-identities tag which has an ssl element. The
protocols attribute of this tag must be explicitly set to a protocol list
that does not include SSLv2 in order to disable it.
The following is a sample configuration that enables only TLS 1.2:
