2336521 - Manual check for JCE jurisdiction policy files strength and JVM compatibility


JCE jurisdiction policy files control the strength of encryption algorithms that can be used on SAP Netweaver Java server. Depending on the encryption scenario, there may be a need for unlimited policy files. For example when a larger than normal keysize is used in a chosen algorithm. You have a warning or error on your Java server indicating the strength of the policy files is the cause and you need to check the strength of the files present on your Java server. Also you need to check if the policy files have been complied with a compatible JVM to that which your Java server runs on. For example for SAP JVM 6 the policy files should have been compiled against a 6.1 JVM.
