This article applies to Virtualization Manager. For information about protecting against the Poodle security vulnerability (CVE-2014-3566) on VIM, see the general KB article, KB5998.

To disable SSLv3 for Virtualization Manager, modify the configuration of Tomcat and lighttpd.

Tomcat

To modify the Tomcat configuration of the Virtualization Manager user interface:
  1. Open the /usr/share/tomcat/conf/server.xml file, and then search for the line which reads sslProtocol="TLS".
  2. Insert the following string to a new line underneath:
    sslEnabledProtocols="TLSv1, TLSv1.1, TLSv1.2"
  3. Save the file.

Lighttpd

SSLv3 support cannot be turned off for the currently used version of lighttpd, but you can disable the vulnerable CBC mode of SSLv3.

To modify the lighttpd configuration of the Virtualization Manager management console:

  1. Open the /opt/vmware/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf file.
  2. Replace the cipher list at the end of the file with the following list:
    ssl.cipher-list = "TLSv1+HIGH:!SSLv2:RC4+MEDIUM:!KRB5-DES-CBC3-MD5:!KRB5-DES-CBC3-SHA:!EDH-RSA-DES-CBC3-SHA:!EDH-DSS-DES-CBC3-SHA:!DES-CBC3-SHA:!AES128-SHA:!AES256-SHA:!aNULL:!eNULL"
  3. Save the file.
