Always use a JVM with the latest security fixes.

ForgeRock recommends that you keep your Java installation up-to-date with the latest security fixes.

Java 11 is the earliest long-term supported (LTS) Java version for most ForgeRock products. Earlier versions of Java do not contain required cryptography fixes. If you are using an earlier version of Java, secure your installation as described in the Java JDK Security Advisory #202109.

HTTP protocol

IG supports HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2.0.

HTTP/1.0 is not supported.


IG replication requires use of fully qualified domain names (FQDNs), such as

Hostnames like are acceptable for evaluation. In production, and when using replication across systems, you must either ensure DNS is set up correctly to provide FQDNs, or update the hosts file (/etc/hosts or C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts) to supply unique, FQDNs.


For secure network communications with client applications that you do not control, install a properly signed digital certificate that your client applications recognize, such as one that works with your organization’s PKI, or one signed by a recognized CA.

To use the certificate during installation, the certificate must be located in a file-based keystore supported by the JVM (JKS, JCEKS, PKCS#12), or on a PKCS#11 token. To import a signed certificate into the server keystore, use the Java keytool command.

Third-party software for encryption

Bouncy Castle is required for signature encryption with RSASSA-PSS or Deterministic ECDSA. For information, refer to The Legion of the Bouncy Castle.

Third-party software

ForgeRock provides support for using the following third-party software when logging ForgeRock Common Audit events:

Software Version

Java Message Service (JMS)

2.0 API

MySQL JDBC Driver Connector/J

8 (at least 8.0.19)


8.0 (at least 8.0.2)

Elasticsearch and Splunk have native or third-party tools to collect, transform, and route logs. Examples include Logstash and Fluentd.

ForgeRock recommends that you consider these alternatives. These tools have advanced, specialized features focused on getting log data into the target system. They decouple the solution from the ForgeRock Identity Platform systems and version, and provide inherent persistence and reliability. You can configure the tools to avoid losing audit messages if a ForgeRock Identity Platform service goes offline, or delivery issues occur.

These tools can work with ForgeRock Common Audit logging:

  • Configure the server to log messages to standard output, and route from there.

  • Configure the server to log to files, and use log collection and routing for the log files.

ForgeRock provides support for using the following third-party software when monitoring ForgeRock servers:

Software Version


5 (at least 5.0.2)





For hardware security module (HSM) support, ForgeRock software requires a client library that conforms to the PKCS#11 standard v2.20 or later.

Studio browser

ForgeRock has tested many browsers with Studio, including the latest stable version of Chrome.
