HTTP Connector throwing security exception - TLSv1



User has a HTTP Connector which connects to a external service. External service changes and so user has changed the TLS version to 1.2. Now, user is getting SecurityException when tried to connect to a service. 

Error Messages

java.lang.SecurityException: TLS version TLSv1 is not strong encryption. TLSv1.2 must be used.

Steps to Reproduce

Run the HTTPConnector activity.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules

SSL Protocol is hardcoded to TLS while setting SSLContext on OOTB activity InvokeHTTPConnector.
Fix has been provided not to pass protocol, while instantiating SSLContext. Leave it to the API to set to highest protocol from JRE.


Apply HFix-25248.
