Security Bulletin: Vulnerability in Diffie-Hellman ciphers affects IMS™ Enterprise Suite: SOAP Gateway (CVE-2015-4000)
Discription

## Summary

The Logjam Attack on TLS(Transport Layer Security) connections using the Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange protocol affects IMS™ Enterprise Suite: SOAP Gateway.

## Vulnerability Details

**CVEID:** [_CVE-2015-4000_]()**
DESCRIPTION:** The TLS protocol could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the failure to properly convey a DHE_EXPORT ciphersuite choice. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using man-in-the-middle techniques to force a downgrade to 512-bit export-grade cipher. Successful exploitation could allow an attacker to recover the session key as well as modify the contents of the traffic. This vulnerability is commonly referred to as “Logjam”.
CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See [_https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/103294_]() for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)

## Affected Products and Versions

The SOAP Gateway component of the IMS™ Enterprise Suite Versions 3.1 and earlier.

## Workarounds and Mitigations

**Java 7 and Java 8 Mitigation:**

1. Disabling DH and DHE cipher suites. The can be achieved by adding the DH and DHE cipher suites to the list of disabled algorithms defined by the jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms security property in java.security file

You should verify applying this configuration change does not cause any compatibility issues. IBM recommends that you review your entire environment to identify other areas where you have enabled the Diffie-Hellman key-exchange protocol used in TLS and take appropriate mitigation and remediation actions.

According to the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST), the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is an “industry open standard designed to convey vulnerability severity and help to determine urgency and priority of response.” IBM PROVIDES THE CVSS SCORES “”AS IS”” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. CUSTOMERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSESSING THE IMPACT OF ANY ACTUAL OR POTENTIAL SECURITY VULNERABILITY. In addition to other efforts to address potential vulnerabilities, IBM periodically updates the record of components contained in our product offerings. As part of that effort, if IBM identifies previously unidentified packages in a product/service inventory, we address relevant vulnerabilities regardless of CVE date. Inclusion of an older CVEID does not demonstrate that the referenced product has been used by IBM since that date, nor that IBM was aware of a vulnerability as of that date. We are making clients aware of relevant vulnerabilities as we become aware of them. “Affected Products and Versions” referenced in IBM Security Bulletins are intended to be only products and versions that are supported by IBM and have not passed their end-of-support or warranty date. Thus, failure to reference unsupported or extended-support products and versions in this Security Bulletin does not constitute a determination by IBM that they are unaffected by the vulnerability. Reference to one or more unsupported versions in this Security Bulletin shall not create an obligation for IBM to provide fixes for any unsupported or extended-support products or versions.
