Frequently asked questions

How does the TLS upgrade work?

The TLS-Upgrade rule allows Java applications to benefit from the latest and more secure TLS protocols and cipher suites without requiring any code modifications. This rule operates by transparently replacing outdated cryptographic protocols with the latest and trusted ones, mitigating common vulnerabilities.

How does Waratek Elevate enhance the security of TCP server sockets?

Waratek Secure's Secure Sockets rule transforms plain TCP server sockets into SSL/TLS server sockets, creating a secure, encrypted communication channel. This rule operates transparently and addresses known vulnerabilities like CWE-319, CWE-311, and CWE-5, classified under "Sensitive Data Exposure" in OWASP's Top 10 list.

Will implementing Waratek Elevate require any changes to my existing applications?

No, one of the key benefits of Waratek Elevate is that it offers significant security improvements without the need for code modifications. This means you can improve your applications' security profiles and align them with current standards without any disruptions to your operations.

How does it work?

Waratek Elevate wraps the entire application stack, including the original JRE in a guest container running as a servlet on the host machine.

The host machine maintains an up-to-date version of JRE that the client machine then communicates with securely with either ultra-low performance impact or, in specific scenarios, a performance increase.

How performant is this solution?

Performance is normally a difficult subject when it comes to legacy application modernization.

Waratek Elevate is the only legacy modernization solution that's been known to increase performance without code changes.

In other scenarios where performance cannot be increased, the overhead is less than 2% in production.
