    Maybe OT - X509 certificate

    Tremal Naik Newbie

      Hi,
      I don't know if this is the correct place where asking this question, eventually point me to the right resource, please

      I moved an application developed on Jboss (4.0.2) in a win environment with Sun JDK to a Jboss on a Unix AIX (IBM) environment. The application makes use of SSL connection, so I had a problem with the Sun implementation of the X509 algorithm, not implemented by the IBM JDK, so I did the following to solve it:

      I copied the rt.jar, jsse.jar, sunrsasign.jar to a folder of the IBM machine included in the JBoss classpath

      I added the following provider spec into the java.security file of the IBM SDK:

      security.provider.1=sun.security.provider.Sun
      security.provider.2=com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider
      security.provider.3=com.sun.rsajca.Provider
      security.provider.4=com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE
      security.provider.5=sun.security.jgss.SunProvider


      Everything looks fine now, but I'd like a confirm that I didn't do anything wrong, like opening security holes or similia.

      Has anybody have any remarks?

      Thanks
