Subject HTTPS after JDK upgrade in Firefox 3 stopped working
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2008 17:03:52 GMT
Hi all,

we are running web application on tomcat 5.5.x which is using HTTPS and
after upgrade of software (Windows Server, JDK, Tomcat, SSL certificate) we
are getting security error message in Firefox 3 when we are accessing web

Message is:
Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to xxxxxxxxx.

Peer's certificate has an invalid signature.

(Error code: sec_error_bad_signature)

In IE and Opera our application works fine. First I thought that our SSL
certificate is bad, but after using old certficate problem remained. After
lot of testing and trying I can say, that problem occured after upgrade JDK
from 5.0 to 6.0. I was not able to find resolution anywhere on internet.
Could anyone help me, which direction to go to fix it? Running tomcat in JDK
5.0 doesn't causes problem after upgrade.

Environment: I upgraded Windows 2000 -> Windows Server 2003, JDK 5u14 -> JDK
6u10, Tomcat 5.5.25->5.5.27. When I run Tomcat in JDK 5u16, it runs fine. I
am using SSL certificate signed by self-signed CA and CA certificate is
correctly installed in IE, FF and Opera.

Thank you,
