Microsoft JDBC Driver 2.0 cannot connect to SQL Server 2008 from a FIPS-enabled IBM WebSphere application

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario. You have an IBM WebSphere application that has Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) enabled. When you use Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver 2.0 to connect to SQL Server 2008 from the IBM WebSphere application, the connection fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
java.sql.SQLException: The driver could not establish a secure connection to SQL Server by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. Error: SSLv3 protocol cannot be enabled in FIPS mode.DSRA0010E: SQL State = 08S01, Error Code = 0

at com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerConnection.terminate(Unknown Source)

at com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.TDSChannel.throwSSLConnectionFailed(Unknown Source)

at com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.TDSChannel.enableSSL(Unknown Source)


Cause

This issue occurs because the IBM WebSphere application requires the TLS protocol for SSL connections when the application has FIPS enabled. However, Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver 2.0 requests the SSLv3 protocol. Therefore, the connection fails.

Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver 2.0 calls the SSLContext.getInstance function. This function takes a string argument. The string argument determines which protocols the returned context should support. According to the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) reference guide, the SSLContext.getInstance function returns an SSLContext instance that supports the specified protocol. However, the returned SSLContext instance may also support other protocols.

In more detail, when Microsoft SQL Server JDBC Driver 2.0 passes "SSLv3" as the string argument, the Sun JSSE provider returns an SSLContext instance that supports both the SSLv3 protocol and the TLS protocol. However, the IBMJSSE2 provider returns an SSLContext instance that only supports the SSLv3 protocol. When a WebSphere application has FIPS enabled, the IBM Java Runtime Environment (JRE) requires the TLS protocol for SSL connections. Therefore, the connection fails.
