During the initial setup of a Transport Layer Security (TLS) connection to the web server, the client sends a list of supported cipher suites in order of preference. The web server will reply with the cipher suite it will use for communication from the client list. If an attacker can intercept the submission of cipher suites to the web server and place, as the preferred cipher suite, a weak export suite, the encryption used for the session becomes easy for the attacker to break, often within minutes to hours.
An essential configuration file for tc Server is catalina.properties. Properly configured, tc Server will not provide the weaker, export ciphers.
At the command prompt, execute the following command: grep bio-ssl.cipher.list /opt/vmware/horizon/workspace/conf/catalina.properties If any export ciphers are listed, this is a finding.
Navigate to and open /opt/vmware/horizon/workspace/conf/catalina.properties. Navigate to the "bio-ssl.cipher.list" setting. Remove any export ciphers from "bio-ssl.cipher.list". Note: To view a list of export ciphers, at the command prompt execute the following command: openssl ciphers 'EXP'
Lavender hyperlinks in small type off to the right (of CSS
id, if you view the page source) point to
globally unique URIs for each document and item. Copy the
link location and paste anywhere you need to talk
unambiguously about these things.
You can obtain data about documents and items in other
formats. Simply provide an HTTP header
