Release Note: SunPKCS11 Initialization With NSS When External FIPS Modules Are in Security Modules Database

      Description

        The SunPKCS11 security provider can now be initialized with NSS when FIPS-enabled external modules are configured in the Security Modules Database (NSSDB). Before this change, when such a library was configured for NSS in non-FIPS mode, the SunPKCS11 provider would throw a RuntimeException with the message "FIPS flag set for non-internal module".

        This change allows the JDK to work properly with recent NSS releases in GNU/Linux operating systems when the system-wide FIPS policy is turned on.
