Release Notes: This release rounds out the OCSP support and adds support for OpenPGP. Compatibility issues concerning BC-generated keys and the JSSE have been addressed, and the OIDs have been corrected for AES support in S/MIME and CMS. This release also uses a new fully-compliant signing certificate which fixes compatibility issues with the new jar verifier in Java Web Start.
Release Notes: CMS and S/MIME now support the draft standard for AES, settable key sizes, and ARC4. The provider now has OCSP support, several bugfixes have been made to the ASN.1 support classes for X.509 certificate extensions and S/MIME capabilities, and a wider range of algorithm identifiers is now supported by the provider. Finally, the test classes have been bundled into their own signed jars to help reduce the size of the provider.
Release Notes: The primary emphasis for this release is cleaning up the ASN.1 library. The range of messages understood by the S/MIME implementation has also been expanded. A bug that could cause DESKeySpec.isParityAdjusted() in the clean room JCE to go into an infinite loop has been fixed. Diffie-Hellman keys should now be generated faster.
Release Notes: S/MIME now supports CompressedData and the encoding of multi-part objects in Enveloped and Compressed messages; messages can also be left in binary if base64 encoding is not appropriate. CMS now supports creation of signed objects with encapsulated data, as well as CompressedData. RC2 parameter processing has been expanded to allow the CMS and S/MIME API to deal with a larger range of clients and a number of other minor bug fixes have been made.
Release Notes: In this version, AES is now substantially faster and users of the lightweight API have a choice of 3 versions with varying footprint sizes. The SMIME/CMS classes have been completely rewritten to support use of the CertPath API and multiple recipients/signers, as well as to fix all encoding issues reported to date. PGPCFB has been added and a number of other enhancements and bugfixes have been made.
Release Notes: In this version, the PKCS12 key store now handles keyBags in encryptedData, SMIME 2 compliance has been added, and the ASN.1 library now supports ENUMERATED, UniversalString, and further support has been added for CRLs and CertificatePolicies. A number of minor bugs and compliance issues have also been fixed concerning PKCS12, X509, SMIME, and a problem has been found and fixed with the key schedule for RC5-64.
Release Notes: The Tiger digest implementation has been fixed. PKCS7 Signed Data is now fully handled. The ASN.1 library has been simplified to ease dealing with implicit tagging and now handles UTF8 strings. The range of certificates and messages supported by the certificate factory and SMIME API has been expanded, and the lightweight API now includes an optimized BigInteger class that uses Montgomery numbers for modPow calculations.
Release Notes: This release adds S/MIME and CMS support as well as an implementation of the CertPath API. A number of minor bugs have also been fixed, and the secret key factories now support a wider range of key specs.
Release Notes: This release adds HMAC-SHA256, HMAC-SHA384, HMAC-SHA512, and RSA-PSS to the JCE provider, the draft DES-EDEWrap algorithm, and IVs to the AES Wrapper. Additionally a number of bugs have been fixed and the PKCS12 key store now supports a broader range of certificate types. This release also introduces a JDK 1.4 provider which will operate with the JCE being shipped with the latest release candidate.
Release Notes: This release features the addition of the AES, the AES Wrapping function, and El Gamal in the JCE and lightweight API. RSA-PSS is now supported by the lightweight API as well. As well as a few bugfixes, several compatibility issues have also been resolved, the most important being that Elliptic Curve keys are now encoded in accordance with SEC 1.
