IBM System x systems management processors and other platform management products weak encryption
|x-mgmt-cve20134030-encryption (86068)||Medium Risk|
IBM System X and Flex Systems encryption with symmetric keys shorter than 128 bits is considered more vulnerable to attack than encryption with keys 128 bits or longer. Several SSL/TLS cipher suites include encryption with keys shorter than 128 bits.
Refer to IBM Security Bulletin 5093631 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
