For some users, Splunk integration may not work out of the box. Java 1.7 (which powers Tomcat, and Securonix) has SSL disabled by default. This results in the following error while attempting to connect to Splunk in Securonix:

No appropriate protocol (protocol is disabled or cipher suites are inappropriate)

However, the Splunk API can be accessed only by SSL encrypted connections. To fix this problem, SSL can be enabled on Java through the following steps: 1. Locate the JAVA_HOME directory (location where the Java used by tomcat is installed) 2. Open JAVA_HOME\jre\lib\security\ in a text editor 3. Find the line "jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3" and comment it (by prefixing a '#' sign to the line). 4. Save and close the file 5. Restart Tomcat. Securonix should now be able to connect to Splunk, provided the connection settings are correct.
