Strong or Weak Cryptography in Productive environment?

Former Member

Hi,

Im setting up a system for XI3.0 for XI3.0 PRODUCTION use.

I'll be using the XI system to integrate 4 different ECC5.0 servers. (4 group companies having individual firewalls).

Now while installing J2EE Addin for ABAP, I have an option for Stron/Weak cryptography.

My questions:

1) How necessary is it to have Strong Cryptography in this scenario ofr XI production server?

2) What are the steps required for implementing strong cryptography in this case? My XI Dev system is having weak cryptography.

3) Can I install the J2EE Addin now with Weak cryptography and later on implement the strong cryptography as the need arrives.

Please advise.

Thanks & regards,

Shobhit

Shobhit,

My questions:

1) How necessary is it to have Strong Cryptography in this scenario ofr XI production server?

-It is best practice to do so.

2) What are the steps required for implementing strong cryptography in this case? My XI Dev system is having weak cryptography.

Applying strong cryptography is really applicable to J2EE rather than XI, portal, etc.

I would also check the XI security Guide.

3) Can I install the J2EE Addin now with Weak cryptography and later on implement the strong cryptography as the need arrives.

Yes, you can apply after.
