OH12-1X-000324 - OHS must have the LoadModule ossl_module directive enabled to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of information during preparation for transmission.


Information can be either unintentionally or maliciously disclosed or modified during preparation for transmission, including, for example, during aggregation, at protocol transformation points, and during packing/unpacking. These unauthorized disclosures or modifications compromise the confidentiality or integrity of the information.

An example of this would be an SMTP queue. This queue may be added to a web server through an SMTP module to enhance error reporting or to allow developers to add SMTP functionality to their applications.

Any modules used by the web server that queue data before transmission must maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the information before the data is transmitted.


1. Open $DOMAIN_HOME/config/fmwconfig/components/OHS/<componentName>/httpd.conf with an editor.

2. Search for the 'LoadModule ossl_module' directive at the OHS server configuration scope.

3. Set the 'LoadModule ossl_module' directive to ''${PRODUCT_HOME}/modules/mod_ossl.so'', add the directive if it does not exist.
