This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:
Certain client applications, especially java may crash with the following:
javax.net.ssl.SSLException: java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not generate DH keypair
This affects java 1.6.0 and 1.7.0.
When nss upgrades to 2.21, it enables DH in ciphers. By default the smallest DH param size is 2048 bits.
However, java 1.6.0 and 1.7.0 can only accept up to 1024 bit params.
DS should have the option, to set NSS to offer smaller (weaker) param sizes for compatibility with older clients.
