OpenSSL and mod_ssl Replacing Oracle Wallet and mod_ossl for EBS 12.1

Steven Chan - Thu, 2017-12-14 12:14

The use of mod_ssl is being phased in along with OpenSSL for the E-Business Suite 12.1 product line. Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 is migrating to OpenSSL and mod_ssl technology in order to future proof the TLS implementation.  OpenSSL and mod_ssl are required for TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2 and to support new cipher suites.

We provided support for mod_ssl and OpenSSL in a phased approach, so that deployment can be planned methodically.  Given the rate of SSL and TLS vulnerabilities that have been found recently and the limited number of strong cipher suites supported with Oracle Wallet, we highly recommend that our customers make the transition to TLS 1.1 or 1.2 sooner rather than later. This way, migrating does not have to be done as a fire drill.

You should follow the instructions in Enabling TLS in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 (Note 376700.1) to implement or migrate to OpenSSL and mod_ssl. 

For reference, the older mod_ossl (SSL v3 and TLS 1.0) which uses the Oracle wallet for the certificates is documented in Enabling SSL or TLS in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (2143099.1).

Different Authentication Settings for Internal and External Users with EBS 12.2 Now Available

Steven Chan - Tue, 2017-12-12 11:05

I'm pleased to inform you of a recent enhancement delivered for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2  If you are using Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.6 or higher you may now configure single sign-on and local authentication at the site and server level.   

Note:  Local authentication simply means that native Oracle E-Business Suite authentication is used. 

With prior Oracle E-Business Suite releases, if you integrated with Oracle Access Manager for Single Sign-On  all users were configured for single sign-on authentication.  Now, you may choose to register your Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.6+ instance with Oracle Access Manager for single sign-on for all internal users while external users may use local user authentication.  This enhancement also eliminates the requirement to add external users to your corporate directory service.

 

 

For additional details regarding the configuration options refer to Section 6.5 Configure Single Sign-on at Site or Server Level  in Integrating Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 with Oracle Access Manager 11gR2 (11.1.2) using Oracle E-Business Suite AccessGate (Doc ID 1576425.1)

Secure Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 with Allowed Redirects

Steven Chan - Thu, 2017-12-07 13:37

A redirect is an HTTP response status code "302 Found" and is common method for redirecting a URL. Client redirects are a potential attack vector. The Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.4+ Allowed Redirects feature allows you to define a whitelist of allowed redirects for your Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 environment. Allowed Redirects is enabled by default with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.6.

When the Allowed Redirects feature is enabled, redirects to sites that are not configured in your whitelist are not allowed. This feature provides defense against unknown and potentially damaging sites. This is an example of an attack that the Allowed Redirect feature will prevent if properly configured:

Your users will see an error message if a redirect is blocked by Allowed Redirects:

Note: Allowed Redirects will only block navigation to sites that happen via client redirects. It is not intended to prevent other methods for accessing external sites.

Secure Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 with Cookie Domain Scoping

Steven Chan - Fri, 2017-12-01 11:56

A cookie is a mechanism of storing state across requests to web site. When a site is accessed, a user's browser uses the cookie to store information such as a session identifier. When the site is accessed on a future occasion, the information in the cookie can be reused. If a domain is not specified, then the browser does not send the cookie beyond the originating host.

The Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 Cookie Domain Scoping feature allows you to define the scope of the cookie. Your scoping configuration requirements will be dictated by the external integrations used with your Oracle E-Business Suite environment and your network configuration. Refer to the documentation for more information regarding your configuration requirements.

Secure Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 with Allowed JSPs/Resources

Steven Chan - Wed, 2017-11-29 11:38

Oracle E-Business Suite is delivered with JSPs and servlets. Most customers use only a subset of these provided resources. The Allowed JSPs or Allowed Resources feature allows you to reduce your attack surface by disabling JSPs or servlets that are not used in your environment. You can allow or deny resources at the family, product or resource level.

The Allowed JSPs feature allows you to define a whitelist of allowed JSPs for your Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 environment. When enabled, accessing JSPs that are not configured in your whitelist is not allowed.

The Allowed Resources feature expands upon the concept of the Allowed JSPs feature and allows you to define a whitelist of allowed JSPs and servlets for your Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 environment. When enabled, accessing JSPs or servlets that are not configured in your whitelist is not allowed.

Your users will see an error message if a resource is blocked by the Allowed JSPs or Allowed Resources feature.

Refer to the documentation for more information on how to to deploy and configure the Allowed JSPs or Allowed Resources feature.

Which EBS Releases include Allowed JSPs or Allowed Resources?

  • Allowed JSPs is delivered with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.4
  • Allowed Resources can be enabled with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.6+.
  • Allowed Resources with a new user interface and recommendations to provide ease of configuration is on by default with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.7.
