Oracle WebLogic must protect the confidentiality of applications and leverage transmission protection mechanisms, such as TLS and SSL VPN, when deploying applications.

Preventing the disclosure of transmitted information requires that applications take measures to employ some form of cryptographic mechanism in order to protect the information during transmission. This is usually achieved through the use of Transport Layer Security (TLS), SSL VPN, or IPSEC tunnel. If the application server does not protect the application files that are created before and during the application deployment process, there is a risk that the application could be compromised prior to deployment.

1. Access AC
2. From 'Domain Structure', select 'Environment' -> 'Servers'
3. From the list of servers, select the AdminServer
4. From 'Configuration' tab -> 'General' tab, ensure 'Listen Port Enabled' checkbox is deselected
5. Ensure 'SSL Listen Port Enabled' checkbox is selected and a valid port number is in 'SSL Listen Port' field, e.g., 7002

If the field 'SSL Listen Port Enabled' is not selected or 'Listen Port Enabled' is selected, this is a finding.

1. Obtain an identity (private key and digital certificates) and trust (certificates of trusted certificate authorities) to configure on the server
2. Create Identity keystore and load private key and certificate using ImportPrivateKey java utility, example:
$ java utils.ImportPrivateKey -certfile -keyfile [-keyfilepass ] -keystore -storepass [-storetype ] -alias [-keypass ]
