I chose "select all" for all cipher suites in the http-listener-2 SSL tab and saved. After seeing warnings about unrecognized ciphers I tried to remove all, but it left one or two items in each list on the right including a "---------------" separator. It also looked like the list on the left now had duplicate items. When I pressed save I saw the following in the glassfish log:

INFO: Grizzly Framework 1.9.50 started in: 0ms - bound to []
INFO: WEB0169: Created HTTP listener [http-listener-2] on host/port []
WARNING: WEB0309: Unrecognized cipher: com.sun.webui.jsf.separator

This is what is in the domain.xml:

<ssl ssl3-tls-ciphers="+SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA,+TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,+SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5,+SSL_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA,+com.sun.webui.jsf.separator"

Also, are the + characters supposed to be there? Not according to this ticket which says it is resolved:

FYI I don't understand the purpose of the "----------" separator. Why are some items above, some items below, and when I say "remove all", it left the separator and one cipher?

Issues need to be addressed before 4.0 HCF (3/25)

Comment by Anissa Lam [ 27/Mar/13 ]

First, the "+" sign is required when preserving the cipher name in domain.xml for backward compatibility.
I don't think Ryan marked GLASSFISH-12289 as resolved means that the '+' sign is no longer needed.

GUI is calling list-supported-cipher-suites to get the entire list to be displayed on screen, and then grouped them to 4 different groups. There is a bug in the grouping that some of them happens to be put in more than 1 group.
Still working on the solution to this.

Comment by Anissa Lam [ 02/Apr/13 ]

Fixed to ensure that the cipher name will not appear in more than 1 group.
