HTTPS application recording issues - IBM Http server Cognos 8.4.1


I am getting error while recording https application. I am using Neoload 7.0 for recording.

The application uses below SSL:
TLS 1.2
112 bit keys.

PFB the Neoload Log,
2019/09/25 20:29:47 WARN - com.neotys.net.proxy.f.h: Exception during the recording 41 javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert: handshake_failure

That cipher "TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA" with 112bits key is weak and disabled by default in NeoLoad. You can try to add it back but i'm not sure if the NeoLoad JRE will accept it.

You can edit theĀ  <install_dir>\conf\controller.properties file and add in first position that cipher in the list of ciphers for the key "https.ciphers.whitelist"

To quickly test it you can manually create your HTTPS URL in NeoLoad and replay it. If you do not get any error then the recording will also work same way.
