SAP PI connecter SOAP receivers HTTPS cypher suite TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384

Hi The community,

we are in SAP PI 7.40 SP13, I have an issue of connection in an communication channel SOAP receiver HTTPS.

The mesage is "Failes to get the input stream from socket: Peer send alert: Alert Fatal: handshake failure.

The cypher suite of the exposed webservice is TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384

I think that this cypher suite is not allowed in library of PI.

Can somebody help me?

Kind regards

Eric Koralewski

    Hi Eric,

    You are right, ECDHE cipher suite is not supported by PI, hence the handshake error occurred. Since the cipher suite is not supported by PI, the target system should add more cipher suites in the supported list. The supported cipher suites by PI are listed in the following note:

    2284059- Update of SSL library within NW Java server Cipher suites supported in the default configuration:















    If there are overlapped cipher suites between PI and the target server, the handshake will success. Also, you can modify the list of the supported cipher suites, please check the part 5.2 of the note in details.

    Best Regards,
