How to disable SSLv3



Here is my current server.xml


<Connector port="8443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol"
maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" SSLEnabled="true"
maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25"
enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true"
acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true"
clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" useBodyEncodingForURI="true"



i tried to replace sslProtocol with

sslProtocol="TLSv1.1″ sslEnabledProtocols="TLSv1.1″

But it did not work. Is there anything else I need to remove from this configuration? How about the "protocol" parameter, should I change it or remove it?


I am following this article:


My Server info:

Server version: Apache Tomcat/7.0.29
OS Name: Linux
OS Version: 2.6.18-308.8.2.el5
Architecture: amd64
JVM Version: 1.7.0_05-b05
JVM Vendor: Oracle Corporation



Thanks a lot!

I believe the documentation below will help you on that matter. Please let us know in case you have any questions.



Hi L.F


Thanks for your response!

Yes I followed that link also. I have no errors but when I scan ssl it is still using sslv3.

We are currently trying other way around by using nginx. And disable sslv3 in nginx
