Install the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE)
In order to install the Java JCE, follow these steps:
- The first obstacle is how to download JCE :) Where the hell is it? Visit the Java HQ and click on Java SE Downloads in the top right hand corner. Scroll down to the bottom and there it is; perfectly hidden so that no one can find it. The file is called
jce_policy-6.zipand it’s only 9 KB.
- Extract the downloaded ZIP. You’ll have two JAR files:
- Locate your Java installation and enter the “jre” directory. In my case its path is
/opt/jdk1.6.0_24/jre. I will refer to this directory as
$JRE/lib/securityand make a backup of the files
US_export_policy.jar. Then replace them with the ones from the JCE ZIP file.
