Symptoms

After upgrading, unable to view certain certs from gui. Catalina.out file could contain the signature MalformedByteSequenceException: Invalid byte 2 of 3-byte UTF-8 sequence. iControl SOAP methods ==================== Management::KeyCertificate::get_certificate_list and get_certificate_list_v2 will return an exception if returning a certificate with special characters.

Impact

The GUI does not display the page containing certificate information. iControl SOAP cannot return a list of certificates if they contain information with special characters.

Conditions

SSL Certificate with special characters might cause exception when GUI retrieves items list page. This has been observed on upgrades to BIG-IP version 11.5.4 through 12.0.0.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

The GUI now correctly displays certificates with special characters, and iControl SOAP methods Management::KeyCertificate::get_certificate_list and get_certificate_list_v2 no longer return exceptions.
