    Description

      The JDK loads security configuration including the JCE providers list, from a master java.security properties file:(JDK_HOME/conf/security/java.security)

      The java.security file and JDK document is missing below information:
      - JDK loads java.security file on application (jvm instance) startup
      - If the java.security file is updated, when will the changes take affect?

      java.security file:
      https://github.com/openjdk/jdk/blob/master/src/java.base/share/conf/security/java.security

      JDK documentation on security :
      https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/security/overview/jsoverview.html
      Section 3 Basic Security Architecture : File Locations
      --- this 'File Locations' description should be updated with how and when the JDK parses the security configuration file.
