FAQ
So I got two e-mails today from Oracle Support warning about Verisign Certs
expiring today and to check MetaLink (thanks for the advanced warning guys).
I've been trying for over an hour now and am getting no joy. Anyone know
what the Verisign Certs are used for in Oracle products? I don't think we
have any of those products, but...

TIA,

Rich

  • Robyn Anderson Sands at Jan 7, 2004 at 3:54 pm
    Per the doc on MetaLink, Oracle Wallet Manager and Sun Java JDK are
    affected by the Verisign certs.

    Here is some of the info:
    VeriSign Class 2 and Class 3 PCA root certificates are included in the
    Oracle Wallet Manager as well as Sun's Java JDK. These certificates will
    expire on January 7, 2004 and are referred to as the "Expiring"
    certificates
    in this note.


    Both the Oracle Wallet Manager and Sun's Java JDK are shipped or utilized
    by the affected products listed above. These certificates are used in
    Oracle's products to authenticate web sites and applications communicating
    over SSL using VeriSign certificates. They are also used to digitally
    sign source code and libraries as a means to validate that the libraries and
    archives have come from a trusted source.


    VeriSign has issued new certificates with the same public key and new
    validity periods as a replacement for the expiring certificates. The
    expiring certificates should be replaced with the new certificates
    following the instructions described in this note.

    ---
    Customers who use VeriSign Class 2 and Class3 PCA root certificates as
    trusted certificates for SSL authentication of users and servers
    (database or web server) will be affected by the root CA expiry starting
    January 8, 2004.
    ---
    This patch will be available for the following products and versions:

    o Oracle Database Server (versions 8.1.7.4, 9.0.1.5, and 9.2.0.4)
    o Oracle Application Server (versions 9.0.2.3, 9.0.3.1, and 9.0.4.0)

    I can send a copy of the doc if you like.

    Robyn

    Raj,

    It seems as though all of Oracle's names are registered through tucows -
    Tucows is simply the registrar, not the owner of the name. This is not at
    all uncommon, and in fact makes sense, given the large number of domain
    names under management for Oracle.

    Thanks,
    Matt
