Cannot connect to RSA Authentication Manager using the Security Console, Operations Console, or Self-Service Console with Firefox after updating to Firefox 36. The following message displays:
Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to am81p.vmware.local:7004. SSL peer rejected a handshake message for unacceptable content. (Error code: ssl_error_illegal_parameter_alert) The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
Traffic of type SSLv3 has been seen when using Firefox 36, where TLS1.2 would be expected.
Firefox 36 and Chrome made changes to required ciphers and connection methods, and Authentication Manager will not accept requests from this version, as of March 2015.
A change for Authentication Manager to be compatible with this version of Firefox and Chrome is included in Authentication Manager 8.1 SP1 patch 2 and later.
This issue is resolved in RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 SP1 patch 2 and later.
If there are Web Tier(s) installed prior to installing SP1 patch 2, uninstall/reinstall the web-tier(s) after applying SP1 patch 2 using the updated web-tier install kit.
