Caused by: javax.net.ssl.SSLPeerUnverifiedException: peer not authenticated

In putty, Live connection works using curl -v https://<user_name>:<password>@cms.netwitness.com:443 command.
CauseRecently, Live CMS server migrated from TLS1 to TLS1.2 default algorithm. This TLS1 algorithm is part of java-1.7.0-openjdk- package. This issue is not observed in higher versions with  java-1.8.0-openjdk- package.
WorkaroundPlease update Security Analytics to higher version which like 10.6.X version to get successful Live connection from SA GUI.
