Encryption Management Server

Issue/Introduction

Symantec Encryption Management Server is capable of using various ciphers to encrypt email using PGP/MIME or S/MIME. For key generation 3DES is a cipher that cannot be unchecked. Symantec Encryption Management Server will then generate all keys with 3DES as the default cipher if the preferred cipher is not available to use.

Resolution

As 3DES is a default fallback cipher, it cannot be unchecked from the user interface of Symantec Encryption Management Server.
