RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Andrew John Hughes 2022-06-24 00:38:22 UTC
This bug was initially created as a copy of Bug #2090378

I am copying this bug because: 

Also needs to be fixed in 8

Description of problem:
Right now there is no way to disable OpenJDK FIPS for all java applications running on a FIPS enabled host. I.e. let everything else - non-Java - be in FIPS mode, but disable it for OpenJDK applications.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
FIPS mode needs to be disabled with '-Dcom.redhat.fips=false -Djava.security.disableSystemPropertiesFile=true' for *every* Java application.

Expected results:
Modify some configuration file that changes this for all Java applications on the current host.

Additional Info:
Prior to the improved FIPS support patch, which didn't use /proc, there was the possibility to set security.useSystemPropertiesFile=false in java.security config file which disabled FIPS globally on the system.
