I need to verify that SSLV2 is not enabled on our Tomcat web server. It is being hosted on a windows 2003 server.

Hi

I found this on

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Web_Servers/Microsoft_IIS/Q_22837110.html

Create a DWORD value in the following key named Enabled.  Set it to 0 (zero).  Reboot.


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\SSL 2.0\Server

Thanks for the response. This appears to be for IIS, I need to know how to do it in Tomcat.

Hi,  

the registry fix may simply disable SSLV2 on Win2k3

the registry key does not point to IIS Subkeys
