Release Note: SunPKCS11 Provider no longer offering SecureRandom by default

    Details

      Description

      SecureRandom.PKCS11 from the SunPKCS11 Provider is disabled by default on Solaris because the native PKCS11 implementation has poor performance and is not recommended. If your application requires SecureRandom.PKCS11, you can re-enable it by removing "SecureRandom" from the disabledMechanisms list in conf/security/sunpkcs11-solaris.cfg

      Performance improvements have also been made in the java.security.SecureRandom class. Improvements in the JDK implementation has allowed for synchronization to be removed from the java.security.SecureRandom.nextBytes(byte[] bytes) method.
