Encryption issue with Solaris and BBJ


The initial security.provider that Sun provides with java is not compatible with the default encryption that we use. This affects both the Solaris and Sun-Intel port of BBj. 

The following changes are required to the file located in ..jdk/jdk1.6.0/jre/lib/security/security.policy file. Root access is required and temporarily give the file write permissions. 

The list of security providers will look similar to:${java.home}/lib/security/sunpkcs11-solaris.cfg 

The default encryption depends on the second security provider, not the first. Reorder this list moving the first entry to the last: 

Once this is complete, change the permissions of the file back to: 


and restart BBjServices. 

The default encryption should now work properly.
