[LOG_CRITICAL][2018-04-13 18:04:09][Thread:Thread-73270][Pass #29172]: [#310034441] ERRSRC:https ERRCODE:58 INDEX:310034441 NAME: TESTDESC:PORTAL_MDD ERROR: jcollector.SATestException: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: java.security.cert.CertificateException: Certificates do not conform to algorithm constraints 
Cause:
MD5 is now considered to be an insecure algorithm which is why Java8 is rejecting it.
Resolution:
Generate a new web server certificate using a more modern encryption algorithm such as SHA2.
